In a remarkable turn of events, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s latest blockbuster, “Jawan,” has achieved a historic milestone by becoming the highest-grossing Indian movie of 2023. This cinematic triumph comes after “Jawan” already claimed the title of the biggest net-grosser of all time in the Hindi film industry at the domestic box office. The film’s stellar performance is reshaping the landscape of Indian cinema.
“Jawan” Triumphs Over “Pathaan”: Directed by Siddharth Anand, “Pathaan” had previously set a remarkable record by grossing approximately 1055+ crores worldwide earlier in the year. Its original run saw a staggering 1050+ crores in earnings. However, “Jawan” has now eclipsed this milestone on its 23rd day in theaters, amassing an estimated total collection of around 1055 crores gross worldwide.
Global Impact and Ranking: “Jawan,” helmed by director Atlee Kumar, has soared to become the 5th highest-grossing Indian movie and the 2nd highest-grossing Bollywood film of all time on the global stage. Aamir Khan’s “Dangal” currently holds the title of the highest-grossing Indian film ever, being the sole movie to surpass the remarkable 2000 crores worldwide, including an impressive 1300 crores from the Chinese box office.
Domestic and Overseas Success: Produced by Red Chillies Entertainment, “Jawan” has not only conquered the domestic box office, grossing approximately 705 crores but has also made a significant mark overseas, accumulating 350 crores. In India, it stands as the highest-grossing Bollywood film ever and ranks 4th overall in terms of all-time highest grossers. On the global stage, “Jawan” currently holds the position of the 6th highest-grossing Indian movie.
Shah Rukh Khan’s Unprecedented Feat: Shah Rukh Khan, known as the “King of Bollywood,” has achieved a monumental milestone with “Jawan.” He is the only Indian actor to have two films in the coveted 1000 crores club worldwide. This accomplishment places him in rarefied air alongside the acclaimed director SS Rajamouli, known for his works such as “Baahubali 2” and “RRR.” SRK is the first Indian personality to deliver two 1000 crore grossers in a single year, solidifying his status as a global cinematic icon.
The success of “Jawan” not only underscores the enduring popularity of Shah Rukh Khan but also highlights the ever-expanding global appeal of Indian cinema. With each record-breaking achievement, the Indian film industry continues to make waves on the international stage, setting new benchmarks and captivating audiences worldwide.
