Looking closer at the box office collections, with the stupendous success of Pathaan, Siddharth Anand is ranked second among the all-time Top directors in terms of domestic box office business. While Rohit Shetty leads the chart with a cumulative collection of Rs. 1656.86 cr. from 15 releases, Anand clinches the second spot with collections of Rs. 1183.12 cr. from just 7 releases. If that was not enough, between the two directors, Anand emerges as the one with the highest solo-grossing film with Pathaan clocking Rs. 543.05 cr. alone, with the only other director in comparison being SS Rajamouli whose Baahubali 2 – The Conclusion (Hindi) had raked in Rs. 510.99 cr.
Now, with Pathaan, following the success of his previous release War that released in 2019, not mentioning other hits like Salaam Namaste, and Bang Bang, Anand has proved his mettle in delivering content that resonates with the audience even years after its release.
