As per a report in ETimes, Pathaan was released in 41 theatres across Bangladesh on May 12. It was also reported that the two-day advance tickets of the designated halls were sold out even before the release. Earlier, in a statement, Nelson D'Souza from Yash Raj Films had said, “Cinema has always been a unifying force between nations, races, and cultures. It transcends borders, galvanizes 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.”

A few years ago, Salman Khan's Hindi film Wanted was screened experimentally in theatres in Bangladesh. It did not attract much audience. Thereafter, in 2017, artists from the Bangladeshi film industry protested against Hindi movies being screened in Bangladesh. Once again, Hindi movies will be screened in Bangladesh, starting with Shah Rukh Khan's Pathaan. As per reports, the Bangladeshi government can screen 10 Hindi movies a year.

Pathaan marked Shah Rukh's successful comeback to the silver screen after four years. It also brought a much-needed respite to the dry spell at the box office with only a very few films turning out to be commercial hits since the Covid-19 pandemic. Along with Shah Rukh and Deepika, Pathaan also stars John Abraham as the antagonist and has Dimple Kapadia and Ashutosh Rana in pivotal roles.
