Shah Rukh Khan’s latest offering, ‘Jawan,’ has shattered industry records by amassing an astonishing ₹128 crore on its opening day worldwide, eclipsing the ₹108 crore debut of ‘Pathaan’ and securing its place as the highest-ever opening day collection in Bollywood history.
In an anticipated feat, Shah Rukh Khan’s latest film, ‘Jawan,’ embarked on its international journey with an extraordinary launch, amassing an estimated $4.50 million (approximately Rs. 37.50 crores) on its opening day.
These initial figures closely resemble the performance of ‘Pathaan’ in most markets, with minor variations. Depending on the final numbers from specific markets, ‘Jawan’ may either surpass or slightly fall short of ‘Pathaan.’
Notably, ‘Jawan’ achieved a remarkable milestone as no other Bollywood film has ever reached the $4 million mark in single-day collections. Remarkably, Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Jawan’ now marks his second $4 million-plus opening, even with a mid-week release. The film’s Thursday debut sets the stage for the potential to exceed $20 million during its four-day weekend, driven by a positive initial audience reception, with Friday expected to witness a significant surge in collections.
