Shah Rukh Khan will be back on the big screen on January 25 after four years with the release of Pathaan. The excitement is palpable with advance bookings surpassing Rs 50 crore.
“The much-awaited action-thriller has crossed one million tickets in advance sales on BookMyShow already. Advance sales for Pathaan have been opening up in phases with over 3,500 screens available on the platform so far,” Ashish Saksena, COO (Cinemas) at BookMyShow, said.
Analysts believe these positive developments are reflecting on INOX and PVR share prices. At 12:30pm, PVR was quoting at Rs 1,673 on the NSE, higher by over 3 percent amid high volumes, while Inox Leisure was trading at Rs 490, higher by 1.8 percent.
