In a groundbreaking moment at the Indian box office, Shah Rukh Khan has etched his name in the annals of Hindi cinema history with his latest release, 'Jawan.' The film has emerged as the highest-grossing Hindi film of all time, surpassing the collections of blockbusters like 'Bahubali 2,' 'Pathaan,' and 'Gadar 2.'
As of Friday noon, 'Jawan' has amassed an astonishing collection of Rs 514 crore, a milestone that few could have foreseen. By the end of its 23rd day, the film is expected to touch the Rs 517 crore mark, solidifying its position as an all-time box office behemoth.
Shah Rukh Khan's remarkable achievement doesn't end there. He becomes only the second actor in the history of Hindi cinema, after the legendary Raj Kapoor in 1949 with 'Barsaat' and 'Andaz,' to deliver back-to-back all-time grossers in the same year. This historic feat signifies Shah Rukh Khan's triumphant return to the silver screen with unparalleled force, effectively shattering box office records with 'Pathaan' and 'Jawan.'
Currently, the record chart is dominated by SRK. From the biggest opening to the most significant single day collections, from the most Rs 50 crore and Rs 60 crore plus days to the highest opening weekend and opening week, Shah Rukh Khan's name is inscribed across the board.
'Jawan' is now entering its fourth weekend, and it shows no signs of slowing down. With an extended holiday weekend on the horizon, the film is poised to rake in at least Rs 27 crore in the next four days. The 26-day total for 'Jawan' is expected to reach approximately Rs 540 crore, and it's on track to hit the Rs 550 crore milestone in the long run, setting a remarkable benchmark in box office history.
These jaw-dropping collections have shattered every preconceived notion and have elevated Shah Rukh Khan and 2023 into the realm of box office legends. 'Jawan' has not just broken records; it has rewritten the very definition of box office success, reaffirming Shah Rukh Khan's undeniable status as the 'King of Bollywood.'
