Shah Rukh Khan starrer Jawan is just a day away from release, and already the film has put his name in the record books. Not just in India, but the film has created some records overseas too and they just keep on increasing. As we gear up for Jawan mania, here are 5 feats which the Shah Rukh Khan starrer has already achieved.
Highest South collection for a Hindi film
While there have been many blockbusters in Hindi cinema, none has been able to leave a huge mark in the South market. Even Pathaan, which crossed over 500 crores nationwide, had only a small percentage of it coming from the South. Jawan’s advance booking collection in South are already the highest for any Hindi film. Now, trade experts predict to have the highest opening day collection in the region, going in double digits.
Highest opening day collection
Shah Rukh created new records this year with Pathaan, and he will break them himself with Jawan. Experts predict an opening day of over Rs 65 crores, all-time highest for any Hindi film. The previous record was held by Pathaan, and Jawan is expected to break it by a large number. A Rs 100 crore business on the opening day globally is on cards for the film.
Beating Pathaan pre-sale collection overseas
Talking about global business, Jawan has created a storm overseas too. In the advance booking, the film beat Pathaan’s records in the US, Canada and many more major markets. The film is expected to rake in big numbers from the overseas market, considering the popularity SRK enjoys.
Getting midnight shows
Many theatres across the country have added 6 AM shows owing to the popularity of the film. But in West Bengal and Bihar, midnight shows have also been put to meet the buzz of Jawan. A 2:15 AM show has been added in Kolkata, while Bihar has 5 AM shows in the pipeline.
Jawan, true pan-India film
With Jawan, the expectations are high as it boasts of huge South names. From actors Nayanthara, Vijay Sethupathi and Priyamani, to director Atlee and composer Anirudh. Jawan has a complete integration of Bollywood with South. This is what we can call true pan-India film.
Jawan releases on September 7 amid huge expectations. Soon, this Shah Rukh Khan starrer storm will have factual numbers to prove its worth.
