In a remarkable feat, the action-thriller ‘Jawan,’ featuring Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, has become the highest-grossing Bollywood release of the year and now stands as the fourth highest-grossing Indian film of all time, amassing an impressive Rs 1000 crore worldwide. Sanya Malhotra, one of the film’s actors, excitedly shared this monumental achievement with her followers on Instagram, accompanied by the caption, “Witnessing History with ‘Jawan’!” The film’s journey to success has rewritten the record books, captivating audiences with its gripping narrative and stellar performances.
With ‘Pathaan’ and now ‘Jawan,’ Shah Rukh Khan has achieved the unprecedented distinction of having two films cross the Rs 1000 crore mark in a single year. In light of the movie’s triumph, the film’s creators recently held a press conference in Mumbai, graced by the presence of Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Sanya Malhotra, Sunil Grover, and Atlee, the director.
Expressing his elation at the film’s success, Shah Rukh Khan remarked, “This is a moment of celebration. It’s not often that we get to live with a project for several years. The making of ‘Jawan’ spanned four years due to the challenges posed by Covid-19 and time constraints. Numerous individuals, especially those from the South who relocated to Mumbai for the last four years, devoted their days and nights to this film, marking it as one of the most arduous endeavors ever.”
The stellar cast of ‘Jawan’ includes Nayanthara, Deepika Padukone, Priyamani, Sanya Malhotra, Ridhi Dogra, Lehar Khan, Girija Oak, and Sanjeeta Bhattacharya. This film marks the Bollywood directorial debut of Atlee, a renowned filmmaker from the South.
The film garnered an overwhelmingly positive response from audiences and now ranks as the fourth highest-grossing Hindi film of all time. Shah Rukh Khan also announced the release date of his forthcoming movie ‘Dunki’ during the ‘Jawan’ success event, stating, “We began our journey on Republic Day with ‘Pathaan,’ followed by the release of ‘Jawan’ on Janmashtami. As we approach the New Year and Christmas, we are preparing to launch ‘Dunki.'” Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, this film also features Taapsee Pannu in a leading role. ‘Dunki’ marks the first collaboration between the ‘Chak De India’ star and the renowned ‘3 Idiots’ director Hirani, along with Taapsee, known for her work in ‘Pink.’
