Pathaan sees blockbuster advance booking overseas, SRK celebrates trailer display on Burj Khalifatext_fields
Dubai: Only 10 days away from the return of Shah Rukh Khan to screen, Pathaan is seeing a very good start in advance bookings overseas. YRF hasn't yet started pre-booking in India for the film.
Tickets in big theatres in Hamburg and Berlin sold out quickly even though Germany is not a big market for Indian films. Industry calls the sale of Pathaan tickets the "Shah Rukh Khan Impact." Both in the UAE and Australia, Pathaan is expected to emerge as the biggest opener of SRK. In the middle easter market, Pathaan has already sold 3,500 tickets which amount to $50,000. In Australia, the film sold over 3,000 tickets worth A$65,000 for the opening day alone.
Shah Rukh Khan has been promoting Pathaan with enthusiasm as it is also the official fourth instalment of Yash Raj Film's spy universe. On January 14, the trailer was displayed on Dubai's iconic Burj Khalifa. The actor himself attended the event and celebrated the occasion with fans. He was seen dancing to the 'Jhoome Jo Pathaan' song. He also clicked pictures with the crowd.
The film will be released on January 25th. Deepika Padukone and John Abraham are also major characters in Pathaan. Both of them had to miss the event in Dubai due to other work commitments.
