Shah Rukh Khan’s Jawan Achieves Coveted 1000 Crore Milestone: Box Office Report
In 2023, Bollywood’s iconic superstar, Shah Rukh Khan, solidified his reign in the industry with not one but two colossal blockbusters. After a relatively lean phase in his career, he made a triumphant comeback by delivering his career’s most significant achievement, “Pathaan,” in January of this year.
“Pathaan” achieved a remarkable milestone in Bollywood, joining the prestigious 1000 crore club, a distinction previously held only by Aamir Khan’s “Dangal,” which grossed over 2000 crores worldwide.
Fast forward to September 7th, and Shah Rukh Khan once again accomplished the extraordinary with “Jawan,” directed by Atlee. In just 18 days from its global release, “Jawan” crossed the remarkable 1000 crore mark.
With this extraordinary achievement, Shah Rukh Khan etched his name in Indian Cinema history as the only actor to deliver two 1000 crore grossing movies in a single year. “Jawan” marked the Bollywood debut of Tamil sensation Atlee, providing the perfect platform for Tamil actress Nayanthara and South Indian music sensation Anirudh Ravichander to make their Hindi film debuts.
This cinematic masterpiece, produced under Shah Rukh Khan’s own banner, Red Chillies Entertainment, also achieved the status of an industry hit in Bollywood, surpassing the domestic net earnings of films like “Pathaan” and “Gadar 2.”
