SRK’s Pathaan becomes first Hindi film to release in Bangladesh since 1971
The Pathaan movie starring Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, and John Abraham will now be available in Bangladesh. The country’s February 24 release date for the movie had previously been set.
New Delhi: Pathaan, sort of Shah Rukh Khan’s comeback movie, broke Bollywood’s slump and did so much better than merely ‘good’ at the box office. After receiving great reviews across the globe, the movie is now prepared to hit Bangladeshi theatres.
Pathaan now has a fresh release date throughout the nation after first being set on February 24. Additionally, it is the first Hindi movie to be released in Bangladesh since the nation was founded in 1971.
Pathaan to release on May 12 in Bangladesh
The Pathaan movie starring Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, and John Abraham will now be available in Bangladesh. The country’s February 24 release date for the movie had previously been set. On May 12, the movie will now be shown in Bangladeshi theatres. Additionally, it marks the debut of Hindi cinema in Bangladesh following the division.
Nelson D’Souza of YRF said, “Cinema has always been a unifying force between nations, races and cultures. It transcends borders, galvanises people and plays a significant hand in bringing people together. We are incredibly thrilled that Pathaan, which has done historic business worldwide, will now get a chance to entertain audiences in Bangladesh!”
He added, “Pathaan becomes the first Hindi film to release in Bangladesh post 1971 and we are thankful to the authorities for their decision. We have learnt over the years that Shah Rukh Khan has a tremendous fan following in Bangladesh and we feel Pathaan, our latest offering from YRF’s Spy Universe, is the perfect first film of SRK and Hindi cinema to release in the country and represent Indian culture and cinema in its full glory.”
Previous reports said that legal issues would prevent Bangladesh from seeing the release of Pathaan. But it appears that the choice was later revised. The movie originally released on January 25.
