The recently released action thriller Jawan, starring superstar Shah Rukh Khan, keeps breaking records and is now the highest-grossing Hindi film in the nation. The movie made Rs 5.82 crore on Thursday, bringing its total earnings to Rs 525.50 crore. With this, SRK’s action thriller has exceeded Gadar 2’s lifetime box office earnings, which starred Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel.
Taking to Instagram, trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared a post which he captioned, “#Jawan crosses lifetime biz of #Gadar2 and #Pathaan #Hindi in #India…Now HIGHEST GROSSING FILM in #Hindi in #India, #SRK features in Top 3 HIGHEST GROSSING FILMS #Hindi: #Pathaan [No 3] and #Jawan [No 1] [Week 3] Fri 7.10 cr, Sat 11.50 cr, Sun 13.90 cr, Mon 4.90 cr, Tue 4.40 cr, Wed 4.45 cr, Thu 5.81 cr.

The movie’s creators convened a press conference in Mumbai following the film’s success. Shah Ruk Khan, Deepika Padukone, Sanya Malhotra, Sunil Grover, and Atlee were among the celebrities who showed up for the occasion.
Sharing his excitement for the success of the movie, Shah Rukh Khan said, “It’s a celebration. We rarely get a chance to live with a film for years. The making of Jawan has been going on for four years due to Covid and time constraints. There were a lot of people involved in this film, especially people from the South who came and settled in Mumbai and have been living in Mumbai for the last four years and working day and night for this film, which is the hardest work ever.”
Nayanthara, Deepika Padukone, Priyamani, Sanya Malhotra, Ridhi Dogra, Lehar Khan, Girija Oak and Sanjeeta Bhattacharya bring depth and strength to the characters in the film Jawan, which is directed by Atlee. Shah Rukh also confirmed the release date of his upcoming movie Dunki at the success event of Jawan.
He said, “We started on January 26, Republic Day (with Pathaan), then on Janmashtami we released Jawan, now New Year and Christmas are round the corner, we will release Dunki. I keep national integration. Anyway, when my film is released, it is Eid.”
Dunki, directed by Rajkumar Hirani, also has Taapsee Pannu in the lead position. The movie is the first time that Khan, Hirani, and Pannu have worked together. The action thriller Salaar starring superstar Prabhas will compete directly with Dunki.
