After making a significant impact at the box office earlier this year with “Pathaan,” Shah Rukh Khan is now gearing up to make another major splash with his latest film, “Jawan.” This film has been highly anticipated by fans, who have eagerly awaited its theatrical release.
Directed by Atlee Kumar, this commercially successful movie is all set to hit cinemas on September 7th. The advance booking for the film began yesterday, and within just 24 hours, tickets have been selling like hotcakes. It seems that the superstar is poised to break his own “Pathaan” record with this new film.
Within the first 24 hours of advance booking, “Jawan” has already sold nearly 300,000 tickets and has crossed the impressive Rs 10 crore mark in terms of gross sales. Remarkably, within the first two hours of ticket sales, Shah Rukh Khan’s starrer managed to sell over 40,000 tickets. Tickets for the movie are being sold at prices as high as Rs 2,400. With five more days to go until the film’s release, it will be fascinating to see how high the advance booking sales can go.
Advance bookings for Atlee Kumar’s film began shortly after a memorable celebration at Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa. During the event, it was revealed to Shah Rukh Khan that an ardent fan and their family had reserved an entire restaurant to meet him and enjoy the enchantment of the “Jawan” trailer at the world’s tallest building. Touched by this gesture, SRK warmly responded, “Please have dinner ready…I’m on my way,” while waving at them. He humorously added, “And perhaps some wet towels; I need to freshen up, as it’s quite hot in this red jacket, as I’ve been mentioning all day. Thank you so much, everyone. God bless you.”
“Jawan,” directed by Atlee, features an ensemble cast that includes Nayanthara, Vijay Sethupathy, Sunil Grover, Ridhi Dogra, Sanya Malhotra, Yogi Babu, Priyamani, and more. The film revolves around a man’s efforts to address social injustices with the support of women. Additionally, Deepika Padukone, Sanjay Dutt, and Thalapathy Vijay will make cameo appearances in this highly anticipated film.
