Shah Rukh Khan’s film, “Jawan,” has successfully passed the Monday test with flying colors. Following an outstanding performance during the extended 4-day weekend, all eyes were eagerly watching how the movie would fare on its first regular weekday. In no uncertain terms, this blockbuster is showing no signs of slowing down. Let’s delve into its performance on day 5!
The collaboration between director Atlee and superstar Shah Rukh Khan has received unanimous praise and a resounding thumbs-up from audiences. Even before the extended weekend concluded, this action-packed entertainer had already crossed the 1 crore viewers mark in India, showcasing its nationwide appeal. Regardless of whether it’s the weekend or a weekday, audiences are flocking to theaters to watch it.
“Jawan” emerged from the extended weekend with a record-breaking collection of 286.16 crores, making history in the process. Despite expectations of a significant drop after such a strong opening weekend, this blockbuster has exceeded all expectations, achieving what many big films struggle to do even on their opening day.
Maintaining a stronghold, “Jawan” is poised to achieve an impressive collection of 31-33 crores across all languages on its fifth day. The Hindi version alone is contributing 27-29 crores to this total. This performance reaffirms that audiences are steadfastly supporting Shah Rukh Khan’s starrer even on weekdays. As anticipated, evening shows witnessed a substantial surge, and now, even nighttime screenings are attracting solid audiences. There may be some influence from the India vs. Pakistan cricket match, suggesting that the film could surprise us with increased nighttime earnings tomorrow.
With a collection of 31-33 crores today, “Jawan” has gracefully entered the 300 crore club and has become the fastest Bollywood film to achieve this milestone at the Indian box office. The previous record holder was Shah Rukh Khan’s own film, “Pathaan,” which took 6 days to reach the 300 crore mark. The total Indian box office collection is on track to reach a staggering 317.16-319.16 crores, with the Hindi version alone aiming for 279.08-281.08 crores within the first 5 days, ensuring that it will hit the 300 crore mark on day 6.
