Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan has made a roaring comeback after 4 years. While Pathaan has scripted a new history of becoming the highest grossing Hindi movie with its global box office gross collections, now it has outranked Yash-starrer KGF Chapter 2.

Yes, if the latest reports are to be believed, SRK's Pathaan has exceeded the lifetime box office gross collection of KGF Chapter 2 (Hindi).

Cine critic and movie analyst Taran Adarsh on Wednesday took to Twitter to share the phenomenal success of Pathaan. 

His post read: "#Pathaan will cross lifetime biz of #KGF2 #Hindi [2nd highest] today [Wed]… Big question: Will #Pathaan surpass #Baahubali2 #Hindi in the coming days?… [Week 2] Fri 13.50 cr, Sat 22.50 cr, Sun 27.50 cr, Mon 8.25 cr, Tue 7.50 cr. Total: ₹ 430.25 cr. #Hindi. #India biz."

In his Tweet thread, he further added, "#Pathaan #Tamil + #Telugu [Week 2]: Fri 50 lacs, Sat 75 lacs, Sun 1 cr, Mon 30 lacs, Tue 25 lacs. Total: ₹ 15.95 cr.  NOTE: #Pathaan #Hindi + #Tamil + #Telugu combined biz: ₹ 446.20 cr. #India biz. Nett BOC."

Well, if the reports are anything to go by with consideration of the continuing BO collection figures, it can be said that Pathaan may soon surpass 'Baahubali 2: The Conclusion' (Hindi) lifetime gross collection. Who knows, SRK may even surpass the gross global lifetime collection of Baahubali 2, KGF 2 and RRR, that currently hold the top ranks in the list of Indian movies with highest global gross collection. 

Pathaan produced under Yash Raj films (YRF), as a part of its Spy Universe, also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in pivotal roles. Moreover, Salman Khan's extended cameo as Tiger was icing on the cake.
