Elated SRK, shared the report on Thursday expressing his gratitude to his fans, who made the impossible possible.
Of course, SRK's fans deserve all the credit as a few days earlier several objections were raised by many triggering outrage. The movie had landed in controversies for different reasons.
Notably, Pathaan marked Shah Rukh's comeback to the silver screen after a gap of 4 years. Though he appeared in several movies in cameos, Pathaan marked his lead.
Apart from Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, Salman Khan's extended cameo has proved to be icing on the cake for Pathaan.
