Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Pathaan has created history by becoming the first Hindi movie to cross the coveted £100 million mark at the worldwide box office in phase one of its release, Yash Raj Films (YRF) said on Tuesday.

YRF claimed that Pathaan has become the highest-grossing Hindi film worldwide in the history of Hindi cinema in its initial run.

Aamir Khan’s Dangal is the highest-grossing Indian film with reported earnings of around £200 million.

In its initial run or phase one of the release, the movie earned over £70 million. In its second phase, when it was released in theatres in China, the film’s box office crossed the £100 crore mark in worldwide gross.

Other films that crossed the £100 million mark at the global box office include Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, RRR, and K.G.F: Chapter 2.

Pathaan follows the titular spy (Shah Rukh) who comes out of exile to stop terrorist group Outfit X from launching a debilitating attack on India.

The stylish action thriller also features John Abraham, Deepika Padukone, Dimple Kapadia, and Ashutosh Rana.

Pathaan is Shah Rukh’s first big screen release as a lead in over four years after Zero (2018).

It is the fourth movie in producer Aditya Chopra’s spy universe, following Salman Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger and Tiger Zinda Hai, and War, featuring Hrithik Roshan.

The fifth film in the franchise, titled Tiger 3, is scheduled to release this year.
