Pathaan is the first film in history to cross the 30 crore nett mark in West Bengal with collections that are 40% ahead of KGF 2 and 25% ahead of Bahubali - The Conclusion. The best outright Hindi performer is War which has just 23 crore nett compared to the 35 crore nett of Pathaan.
Shah Rukh Khan is easily the biggest star in West Bengal and maybe even possibly the biggest star ever. Mithun Chakraborty was the biggest star before but at that time it was a different circuit with a huge contribution outside Kolkata and Mithun Chakraborty was king there. Today its mainly about Kolkata and Kolkata has never seen a bigger star than Shahrukh Khan.
These sort of issues like West Bengal becoming just about Kolkata were signals of an industry not being able to reach the wider audience but at the time it did not really matter as numbers came from the mutiplexes and main centres but post pandemic when numbers have reduced in the bigger centres then this audience is needed.
The weekly collections of Pathaan in West Bengal are as follows.
Week 1 - 24,16,00,000 (9 Days)
