Shah Rukh Khan’s Jawan is gearing up to enter the 500 crore mark at the Indian box office. The film has managed to collect ₹ 493.63 crore within 12 days of its release, Sacnilk reported. Jawan, on the second Monday, September 18, minted ₹ 16 crore (approximately) at the box office. Over the second weekend, the SRK film did a total business of ₹ 87.75 crore, out of which ₹ 82.46 crore came from the Hindi belt alone. The Atlee directorial also stars Nayanthara and Vijay Sethupathi in crucial roles. 

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh has called Jawan a “box office dinosaur.” According to the film critic, Jawan “crushes every record that stands tall in record books.” 

Taran Adarsh wrote, “Jawan is a Box Office Dinosaur, crushes every record that stands tall in record books… Overtakes Pathaan Weekend 2 business by leaps and bounds Pathaan: ₹ 63.50 crore; Jawan: ₹ 82.46 crore]… Not merely a record-breaker but also a record-maker. [Week 2] Friday 18.10 crore, Saturday 30.10 crore, Sunday 34.26 crore. Total: ₹ 430.44 crore. #Hindi. #India biz. #Boxoffice.” 

The Tamil and Telugu versions of Jawan are also setting new benchmarks. It became the first Hindi film to hit a half-century in dubbed versions, according to Taran Adarsh. Take a look:

It is safe to say that the Jawan fever and Shah Rukh Khan’s charm have taken over the world. The film has crossed the ₹ 800 crore mark at the global box office. 

In a recent interview with Pinkvilla, Atlee revealed that he never had “a second thought” about who will be playing the lead because “Jawan is only made for [Shah Rukh] Khan sir.” The filmmaker also mentioned that from day 1 of the shooting, the only person he interacted with was Thalapathy Vijay, who was “very advisory and always a backbone” to him during this journey of filming Jawan. 

Atlee said, “Jawan is only made for [Shah Rukh] Khan Sir. I didn’t have a second thought about who is going to do it. But from day 1, the script, the scenes, what I do, how it went; the only person I interacted with was Vijay sir. He is like a brother to me. And we are very serious about what we do in life. So he used to share about his films. I shared what I was doing and all.” 

“So he was very advisory and always a backbone to me. We shared a lot of stuff on Jawan, what is happening on Jawan; but it is purely made for Shah Rukh,” he added. 

Atlee and Thalapathy Vijay have collaborated in a series of blockbuster films like Theri, Mershel and Bigil.
