In an interview, Pathaan's director Siddharth Anand said the OTT version might have scenes that couldn't make it to the theatrical edition. The backstory of Shah Rukh's character could be shown in detail. "It's the synergy that Abbas, Sridhar, Adi and me, it's the four of us, not the three of us. The four of us having the same belief system, and the same films we’ve adorned, grown up on, and believed in and the cinema that we believe in. We share that, we share the same sentiment. So, the fact that he doesn’t have a name, and he’s found in a theatre that was actually called Navrang, which got edited out, which you might see in the OTT version," Siddharth told.
Pathaan, which is still running in theatres, collected Rs. 0.98 crore nett in India in the eighth week. The film's nett collection in India stands at Rs. 541.96 crores and its worldwide gross is Rs.1048.30 crores.
