According to a Bollywood Hungama report, the makers of Shah Rukh Khan starrer Pathaan will begin the advance booking for the film on January 20. The idea behind this is to take advantage of the hype around Pathaan to its optimum and then open the advance bookings.
Rohan Malhotra, Vice President, Distribution, YRF, said, “The advance booking for Pathaan will open on January 20 in India for the normal 2D version in Hindi, Tamil & Telugu along with premium formats like IMAX, 4DX, D BOX and ICE versions in Hindi. YRF is very excited to release the 4th film of the YRF Spy Universe which marks the entry of superstars Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham to one of India’s biggest franchises.”
He added, “YRF is thrilled with the buzz that this film is carrying and we are hopeful that the next chapter of the YRF Spy Universe which follows the events of Ek Tha Tiger (2012), Tiger Zinda Hai (2017) and War (2019), will be loved by audiences across the board like the earlier films. We have asked our cinema exhibition partners to open advance bookings of the film 5 days before the film’s release for the extended holiday weekend.”
Pathaan releases in theatres on January 25. The film stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in the lead. Directed by Siddharth Anand, the film also stars Dimple Kapadia and Ashutosh Rana in pivotal roles. Pathaan will release in theatres in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
