Pathaan’s bookings are underway in the Middle East in countries like UAE, in Europe (Germany), and Australia. As per reports, around 3500 tickets have sold out, which goes to about $50K, while in the UAE, it is expected to get a big opening. It speaks a lot about the records of his earlier film Raees in this market. The gangster drama managed to gain collect $350,00 in 2017.
