As Pathaan hits theatres today, the film will see Deepika Padukone in the lead alongside Sharukh Khan. It had sold over 5 lakh tickets in advance bookings. The film also managed to resurrect 25 closed single screen cinemas across India.

Shah Rukh Khan made his long-awaited return to the big screen with Yash Raj Film’s ‘Pathaan’ today. Directed by Siddharth Anand, the man behind the blockbuster hit ‘War’, ‘Pathaan’ pits SRK as Agent Feroz Pathaan against John Abraham’s Jim. While the movie, which also has Deepika Padukone in the lead, triggered the boycott brigade over a host of reasons, it sold over 5 lakh tickets in advance bookings.
