Pathaan recorded the second highest sixth week of all time with collections of 8.50 crore nett which is phenomenal for a film which smashed all initial records. It also shows how the box office has changed today as it was unthinkable pre pandemic that a film which clocks up 100 crore nett in three days could also be smashing records in week six.
The 300 crore films before the pandemic like Dangal, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Sanju, Tiger Zinda Hai, etc are nowhere to be seen on the list as had finished their runs. Here Pathaan which has grossed far more is still going strong and this is basically down to lack of releases and the ones which are coming are not doing well.
Pathaan should have actually slowed down long back but weak releases has meant its collections are holding up and even with Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar it could still keep going as that film also has middling numbers. The top sixth weeks ever for original Hindi films are as follows.
