Siddharth Anand, who directed the YRF movie Pathaan, which was a huge hit at the box office, is without a doubt one of India's best directors of this generation. The director of the massive blockbusters "WAR" and "Pathaan" from YRF's Spy Universe, who has received support from Aditya Chopra, says he is really overwhelmed after making box office history.

Siddharth refers to it as a scripting history that no one can plan but that everyone desires. It simply occurs and is a truly humbling experience when it does. The director is currently feeling tremendously stressed and is motivated to return to the set of a movie in order to try to once again make something truly unique for viewers; that's how he is feeling.

With Pathaan, Siddharth Anand became the only director of Hindi films to have two consecutive 50 crore+ openings to his name. He says that he wants to make more immersive experiences and shows like Pathaan more than ever. Yes, numbers are important to him, and although it is a recognition of all the effort, making movies is also a team sport. The director thus shares this amazing occasion with the entire Pathaan cast and crew. Siddharth is delighted they were able to fulfil the promise they made to each other to produce a theatrical production that has never been seen before and spans the entire nation.

Siddharth also said that the Hindi film business has made movies like War and, most recently, Pathaan, which have become popular all over India. He has always believed that the film contains no language. Cinema is about emotions, and if they resonate with viewers, they may soar to incredible heights, as is the case with Pathaan.

Siddharth is happy with how well Indian movies are doing and how they are setting new standards with big international hits. He added that they are all first and foremost Indians, and thus today is a victory for Indian cinema. The fact that movies from all over India are setting and breaking records and, most importantly, delighting audiences throughout the world is such an exciting time for the nation.

The second day of sales for YRF's Pathaan brought in Rs. 113.6 crore in gross, bringing the worldwide total to a staggering Rs. 219.6 crore in gross.

The national celebration of Pathaan has made it a must-see theatrical production. Pathaan, a part of Aditya Chopra's grandiose spy world, stars Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, and John Abraham, three of the nation's top actors.
