Happy Republic Day! #Pathaan is perfection!” A Twitter user wrote, “As citizens, all we can do is appreciate each other's efforts, and help us to grow as a nation. That's the best we can do for our country, hence getting ready to watch Pathan to see all the hard-work you have put in. Let's not not boycott, but appreciate the efforts.” Another fan wrote, “Congrats on your comeback , babe. love you.”

As per trade analyst Taran Adarsh, Pathaan is Bollywood's biggest opener as it minted ₹55 crore on the first day of its release. With these figures, Pathaan has managed to beat the opening day collection of Hrithik Roshan's War ( ₹51 crore) and Yash's KGF: 2 Hindi ( ₹53 crore). Helmed by Siddharth Anand, Pathaan was released on January 25, a day before Republic Day 2023, in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu languages. It is produced by Yash Raj Films.

The action-packed film has also reportedly entered the ₹100-crore club on Day 1 at the global box office. Pathaan marks SRK's return to the silver screen after four years. It's an action-spy film. Salman Khan appears in an extended cameo as his character from the Tiger movies, which are also a part of the new shared universe that YRF has set up. The franchise also includes War, directed by Siddharth only.
