Pathaan day 8 box office collection indicates that the film starring Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham will surpass Aamir Khan’s Dangal’s lifetime earnings within days. Meanwhile, Alia Bhatt, who recently performed crazy spoon dance at Shah Rukh’s house to celebrate the success of Pathaan, has made a big statement on India’s boycott gang. She also reacted to Pathaan breaking the box office collection of Brahmastra.
Speaking to reporters, Alia said, “We believe that we belong to the audience. The audience can say whatever they want about us. As long as we are entertaining them, we will do our very best.”
India’s Hindutva fanatics backed by powerful BJP ministers had called for a boycott of Pathaan accusing Shah Rukh of hurting the sentiments of Hindus. Alia too had faced similar calls for a boycott in the past by the same gang in the past.

While Pathaan can easily surpass that figure just on the 9th day of its release. The film has already collected Rs. 632 crore globally within seven days of its release.
