Jawan Sets Box Office Records with Rs 111.73 Crore in Ticket Sales

Shah Rukh Khan starrer beats Pathaan’s opening day collections


Shah Rukh Khan’s latest film, Jawan, has taken the box office by storm, raking in an impressive Rs 111.73 crore in ticket sales within the first two days of its release. With such a phenomenal start, Jawan is poised to enter the coveted 500 Crore Club and potentially surpass the success of Khan’s previous film, Pathaan.

Record-Breaking Collections

On its opening day, Jawan collected an astounding Rs 65.50 crore in the Hindi version alone, surpassing Pathaan’s opening day collections of Rs 55 crore. Even on its second day, a regular working day, Jawan managed to bring in a massive Rs 46.23 crore in ticket sales.

  • Jawan made Rs 65.50 crore on Day 1 and Rs 46.23 crore on Day 2 in theatres.
  • The film’s two-day total currently stands at Rs 111.73 crore.

Shah Rukh Khan’s Success Streak

Jawan marks Shah Rukh Khan’s ninth century, joining the ranks of his previous blockbusters such as Ra. One, Don 2, Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Chennai Express, Happy New Year, Dilwale, Raees, and of course, Pathaan. By the end of its extended four-day weekend, Jawan is expected to be Khan’s fourth double-century and potentially his second highest-grossing film ever.

Nayanthara’s Bollywood Debut

Jawan also marks the highly successful Bollywood debut of leading lady Nayanthara. The Tamil superstar chose to make her foray into Hindi cinema with this massive blockbuster, firmly establishing herself in the industry.

Director Atlee’s Impact

Director Atlee, known for his Tamil hits, has impressed the pan-Bharat audience with Jawan. With his distinct style and a perfect blend of north and south sensibilities, Atlee has delivered yet another crowd-pleaser.

Milestones Ahead

As Jawan continues its successful run, industry experts predict that it will surpass the Rs 250 crore mark by the end of its extended four-day weekend. The film is also expected to comfortably cross the Rs 350 crore milestone by the end of its first week. If the second weekend brings in an additional Rs 100 crore, Jawan could easily become the fastest entrant into the esteemed 500 Crore Club.
