Shah Rukh Khan’s long-awaited film, ‘Jawan,’ hit theaters on Thursday, September 7, and it made a massive impact right from the start. The movie had an incredible opening day, both globally and in India. But the excitement didn’t stop there. ‘Jawan’ continued to amaze audiences and create history on Saturday. On its third day, the film saw an astonishing 45 percent increase in its box office earnings.
According to the boxofficeindia.com website, ‘Jawan’ raked in a whopping Rs 67 crore nett, solidifying its place in history. This Saturday collection is now the highest ever recorded, surpassing all expectations. It even outperformed ‘Pathaan,’ which had a three-day collection of Rs 160 crore. With Saturday’s incredible Rs 67 crore earnings, ‘Jawan’ is set to reach a total of around 178 crore nett in just three days.
While Sunday was expected to bring in even higher numbers, there’s some uncertainty due to the India Vs. Pakistan cricket match, which might keep audiences glued to their screens at home. However, there’s still hope that cinema lovers will flock to theaters on Sunday, keeping expectations high.
Previously, crossing the 100 crore mark in three days was considered a significant achievement. However, ‘Jawan’ has shattered records by crossing Rs 175 crore in just three days, setting a new benchmark. On the global stage, it has already surpassed the Rs 200 crore mark. Everyone is eagerly awaiting the Sunday numbers, and it will be fascinating to see how the film performs in the coming week, starting from Monday.
‘Jawan,’ directed by Atlee and featuring Nayanthara and Vijay Sethupathi, has received immense love from fans. Deepika Padukone’s cameo alongside SRK has also been a highlight of the movie.
