'Pathaan' is one of the biggest blockbusters of this year and thanking fans actor Shah Rukh Khan shared photos and videos of his fans as they watched the film, danced to its songs, cut cakes and celebrated it as nothing short of a festival. The actor shared photos and videos from Delhi, Kolkata, Silchar, Nagpur, Bengaluru and many other cities as fanclubs shared how they watched the film and turned it into an event. The actor also shared videos and photos from Egypt, Australia and New Zealand, among other places.
He thanked his fans for their love, asking them to be safe at all times. For a particular video where a number of people have climbed on to a vehicle and were bursting crackers, Shah Rukh wrote good-naturedly, “Yaar yeh toh kaafi zyaada ho gaya thank u (Now this is too much).”
Shah Rukh changed his promotional strategy for Pathaan, his first film in almost five years. After a spate of disappointments, Pathaan has written box office history and has emerged as the biggest earner in Hindi ever.

Pathaan, after 12 days of release, has recorded $38.68 million in the overseas territories alone, while nett collection in India stand at 429.90 crore. The total worldwide gross is an incredible 832.20 crore.
