However, Pathaan crossed the benchmark when it sold over 6 lakh tickets for the first day by the end of Sunday. The SRK actioner has also emerged as the highest pre-sales scorer in India this year by surpassing the pre-sales record of the Telugu film Veera Simha Reddy which collected approx Rs 16.20 crore gross for opening day in the advance booking itself, reported the trade website sacnilk.
The report added that Pathaan has so far sold over 580K tickets for its opening day all over India in all formats with 300K tickets booked from the three national chains (PVR, INOX, and Cinepolis).
