Atlee Kumar’s action thriller, Jawan, starring Shah Rukh Khan, has become a box office juggernaut. The film has crossed the Rs 800 crore mark worldwide in just 11 days, with a domestic gross of over Rs 530 crore. This makes it one of the biggest successes in Indian cinema history.
The tremendous success of Jawan is a testament to Shah Rukh Khan’s enduring popularity as the Baadshah of Bollywood. It comes just months after his previous film, Pathaan, directed by Siddharth Anand, also scripted history at the box office.
Jawan poised to break several records at the box office
Shah Rukh Khan’s Jawan is on the cusp of entering the Rs 1,000-crore club globally, a feat that has only been achieved by a handful of Indian films. The film has already broken several box office records, including becoming the fastest Indian film to cross Rs 500 crore and Rs 800 crore worldwide.
If Jawan enters the Rs 1,000-crore club, it will become the first Indian film to do so in 2023. It will also be the second Indian film to cross Rs 1,000 crore globally in the same year, after Pathaan, which also stars Shah Rukh Khan.
Here are some of the box office records that Jawan would have broken once it enters the Rs 1,000-crore club:
Fastest Indian film to cross Rs 1,000 crore globally
First Indian film to cross Rs 1,000 crore globally in 2023
Second Indian film to cross Rs 1,000 crore globally in the same year, after Pathaan
Highest-grossing Indian film of all time directed by Atlee
Highest-grossing Indian film of all time starring Shah Rukh Khan
The success of Jawan is a testament to Shah Rukh Khan’s enduring popularity and the growing global appeal of Indian cinema. It is also a sign of the increasing confidence of Indian filmmakers in making big-budget, high-octane films that can compete with the best from Hollywood.
