In a scorching blaze of glory, the one and only Shah Rukh Khan has ignited the Indian box office like never before. The superstar has conquered uncharted territory, becoming the first Bollywood and the second Indian actor ever to achieve a jaw-dropping 1000 crore net collection in a single year.
In 2023, SRK delivered not one, but two blockbuster hits: “Pathaan” and “Jawan.” These cinematic gems have soared to the top as the highest-grossing Indian films of the year, placing King Khan in a league entirely his own.
“Pathaan,” a high-octane thriller directed by Siddharth Anand and produced by Yash Raj Films, stormed theaters in January. With a staggering 543 crores net collection, including a mind-boggling 524+ crores in Hindi alone, it currently reigns supreme as the highest-grossing movie in Hindi cinema history.
And the excitement doesn’t stop there. “Jawan,” a pulse-pounding action thriller helmed by Tamil director Atlee Kumar, is currently taking the box office by storm. In just 11 days, it has notched up a colossal 478 crores net collection, with a jaw-dropping 430+ crores in Hindi.
When you add up the net collection of “Pathaan” and “Jawan,” it’s a jaw-dropping 1020+ crores, and the numbers keep rising. With the 12th-day collection of “Jawan,” Shah Rukh Khan is on the cusp of 1035 crores, solidifying his place as the highest net collection scoring Indian actor in a single year.
It’s a feat that brings back memories of Superstar Prabhas, who first blazed this trail with his monumental “Baahubali 2,” directed by SS Rajamouli, amassing a staggering 1030 crores net in all versions in 2017.
But the story doesn’t end here. “Jawan” is on an unstoppable course to claim the throne as the highest-grossing Bollywood movie in the domestic box office, poised to cross the 500 crores net mark in all versions by September 19. It’s set to dethrone “Pathaan” during its 3rd week, making Shah Rukh Khan’s reign at the top an unforgettable one!
