Even though Shah Rukh Khan’s blockbuster has been defying expectations since its opening, the estimates for Jawan’s strength in its sixth week of release were actually lower than the movie’s real strength. Industry tracker Sacnilk changed the amount of rupees that was first reported as the movie’s day 40 nett total in India to rupees 77 lakh. At first, it was claimed that the image had brought in 60 lakh rupees. Jawan apparently made nearly the same amount of money on day 41 of its distribution as it had on day one.
This raises the movie’s lifetime domestic total to Rs. 637 crore, which indicates that it is just Rs. 5 crore short of closing the Rs. 100 gap with Shah Rukh’s Pathaan, the second-biggest Bollywood film of all time. This also implies that because Jawan’s record is so hard to beat, it will be challenging for competitors in the future to surpass it.
The movie has shattered numerous box office records; it had the best opening weekend, opening day, and opening week in Hindi film history. Furthermore, Jawan is the first Hindi movie to reach the Rs 600 crore domestic revenue milestone. It also achieved the fastest crossing of the Rs 100 crore, Rs 200 crore, Rs 300 crore, Rs 400 crore, and Rs 500 crore milestones. Apart from Dangal’s astronomically high box office profits in China, Baaghi 2 is the most successful Hindi film in the genre’s history.
Nonetheless, the film continues to hold the record for highest-grossing Indian and Bollywood film globally because of its extraordinary popularity in China. Jawan is on the verge of breaking the all-time record of Rs 1140 crore, which would place it roughly Rs 90 crore ahead of Pathaan and roughly Rs 75 crore behind KGF: Chapter 2. In terms of earnings at the global box office, Jawan, which was directed by Atlee and featured Nayanthara and Vijay Sethupathi, is currently the fifth-biggest Indian film in history. After KGF 2, RRR, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, and Dangal, it is placed sixth overall.
It has faced many different kinds of challenges throughout the course of its existence, but it now seems as though the time has come to cede control to the next big Bollywood hit and give up what little traction it still had in the South market. This week, Ganapath and Leo will both go on sale, and it’s expected that both will dominate their respective markets. For future generations, however, Jawan, Pathaan, and Gadar 2 will be remembered for their part in drawing audiences back to theaters after the pandemic.
