The King Khan of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan is once again ruling the box office just like the good old days. The actor returned on the big screen after a wait of four long years with the film, Pathaan. However, seeing the numbers and the records that the film is breaking almost every day indeed makes Shah Rukh’s comeback worth waiting for. According to the latest reports, Shah Rukh Khan's film crossed the Rs. 700 crore mark at the worldwide box office. The domestic box office collections of Pathaan are around Rs. 365 crores net.
Amid the gigantic success of Pathaan, several pictures, unseen videos and clips of his interviews are doing rounds on the internet. The entire nation is celebrating the success of Pathaan and putting the much-needed final nail in the coffin of the 'Boycott Gang'. In the middle of all the appreciation and love that he and his film is receiving, a rare picture of Shah Rukh Khan from his childhood days made its way to the internet. In the picture, a young Shah Rukh can be spotted sipping a cold drink and looking into the camera.
As soon as the picture started doing rounds on the internet, while some people called it the most wholesome picture of the day, many admitted that it was a treasure for the fans of Shah Rukh Khan. Just looking at the picture, it’s incredible how a kid from Delhi went on to rule the Indian film industry, and multiple generations fell in love with him. Apart fro being titled as the 'King of Romance' and 'Badshah of Bollywood', Shah Rukh Khan also owns a net worth of Rs. 6000 crores. He is indeed the last of the stars, who won both hearts and wealth.
After breaking so many records at the box office, all eyes are on Pathaan’s collection on the upcoming weekend as it is inches away from breaking Aamir Khan’s Dangal’s domestic record of Rs. 387.38 crores. As of now, Pathaan stands at Rs. 364 crores, and if the trade reports are to be believed, Shah Rukh Khan's film, Pathaan is showing all signs of beating Dangal’s record. In just nine days, Pathaan had collected Rs. 700 crores, which is indeed an outstanding feat for a Hindi film when the boycott gang demolished the business of Bollywood films.
Everyone is aware of the fact that Shah Rukh Khan is incredibly famous around the globe, and over the years, we have seen numerous Hollywood celebrities praising him for his impact on the Indian film industry. Now, after the success of Pathaan, critically-acclaimed author, Paulo Coelho praised Shah Rukh Khan for his incredible performance in Pathaan and called him a legend.
The Alchemist author wrote, "King. Legend. Friend. But above all great actor. (for those who don't know him in the West, I strongly suggest "My name is Khan - and I am not a terrorist")", in his tweet. The Badshah of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan reacted to Paulo’s congratulatory tweet in his trademark gentleness. The actor thanked the world-famous author and admitted that they should meet sooner than soon. The tweet can be read as:
"You are always too kind my friend. Let us meet up sooner than soon! Bless you."
