In a remarkable feat that has taken the Bollywood industry by storm, Shah Rukh Khan’s latest release, “Jawan,” has shattered records and set new milestones in the world of cinema. Directed by Atlee, this high-octane action-thriller has achieved a historic milestone by becoming the fastest Bollywood movie to reach the Rs 500 crore mark at the global box office. The film’s success has solidified Shah Rukh Khan’s status as a cinematic powerhouse, making him the only Indian actor to achieve this remarkable feat twice in a single year.
The Box Office Journey
“Jawan” embarked on its journey to box office glory on September 7, 2023, with a simultaneous release in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu. The film got off to a thunderous start, collecting an astounding Rs 125.05 crore on its first day. This remarkable momentum continued with Rs 109.24 crore on the second day, Rs 140.17 crore on the third day, and Rs 156.80 crore on the fourth day at the global box office. By Tuesday, the film had amassed a staggering approximately Rs 575 crore worldwide, and it was expected to cross the Rs 600 crore mark in gross collections.
Domestic vs. International
“Jawan” has not only conquered the domestic box office but has also made its mark globally. In terms of net domestic box office collections, it has even surpassed the first week numbers of Sunny Deol’s “Gadar 2,” which was a significant achievement. The film is estimated to have raked in around Rs 316.56 crore by its first Monday.
Internationally, “Jawan” has been a sensation, claiming the number one spot in markets outside North America, such as New Zealand, and securing the second position in markets like Australia for the September 7-10 weekend.
The film’s success is not only reflected in its earnings but also in its ticket sales. “Jawan” set a new record by selling 28,75,961 tickets from tracked shows in India alone on its fourth day. Major multiplex chains, including PVR, INOX, and Cinepolis, contributed significantly to this milestone, selling 9,57,511 tickets on that day.
The Star-Studded Cast
“Jawan” boasts a stellar cast, with Shah Rukh Khan playing a double role and Nayanthara portraying a determined cop tasked with taking down his character. The film also features Vijay Sethupathi, Priyamani, Deepika Padukone, Sanya Malhotra, Sunil Grover, and Riddhi Dogra in significant roles.
What Lies Ahead
“Jawan” has not only crossed the Rs 500 crore mark but is well on its way to establishing new records. With a predicted business of Rs 40 crore on its sixth day, the film is poised to join the exclusive club of films that have crossed the Rs 500 crore mark in 6 days.
Shah Rukh Khan’s “Jawan” is a testament to the power of storytelling, star power, and a dedicated team. As the film continues its extraordinary box office run, it raises the bar for what Bollywood can achieve on the global stage.
In a cinematic landscape where milestones are continually redefined, “Jawan” stands as a shining example of Bollywood’s global appeal and Shah Rukh Khan’s unrivaled star power.
