Post on .

Jawan, a recent action film from Bollywood featuring Shah Rukh Khan, has broken box office records in a mere two days. Reports indicate that the film has already surpassed USD 10 million internationally and has amassed a worldwide total of Rs. 240 crores (roughly USD 32 million). Jawan is now the quickest movie to reach the USD 10 million milestone, accomplishing this feat in just two days compared to Pathaan, another Shah Rukh Khan blockbuster, which took three days.

Jawan has broken records by earning LKR 2.50 crores in just two days in Sri Lanka. The film's release in Bangladesh was historic, marking a day and date release for an Indian film. While the actual numbers are still awaited, the film's opening is just as historic.

Despite its box office success, Jawan received mixed reviews from critics. They note the film's plot is contrived and its mood swings are conventional. However, the film's swift action and Shah Rukh Khan's acting have received acclaim. Khan delivers a cheesy yet sincere monologue towards the end of the film, reminding the audience of his resemblance to them, the disinterested public who, despite their good intentions, have not always managed to fight against corruption.

Jawan is produced by Red Chillies Entertainment, the production company owned by Shah Rukh Khan and his wife, Gauri Khan. The film centers on a soldier named Azad, portrayed by Shah Rukh Khan, who combats corruption within the government through violent, media-amplified demonstrations. Azad also pursues a romantic relationship with Narmada and wins over her ten-year-old daughter Suji with his charm.

Shah Rukh Khan's Film Crosses Rs 100 Crore Mark in Two Days

Shah Rukh Khan's newest movie, Jawan, has surpassed the RS 100 crore benchmark within two days of release. According to Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the film has garnered RS 111.73 crore in just 48 hours. Jawan has set a new record as the most successful Hindi film opener in India.

The movie raked in a remarkable RS 65.50 crore on the first day of its release and a staggering RS 46.23 crore on the second day. The movie is projected to earn approximately 72 million rupees on its third day of release. It is estimated that the worldwide box office collection on the third day will be around 93 to 95 million rupees.

Jawan has already surpassed the 200 million rupee mark in worldwide box office collection. The film has received acclaim for its action sequences and Shah Rukh Khan's portrayal as a police officer. However, the film has also been criticized for supposedly being a replica of the Tamil movies Thaai Naadu and Arrambam.

Despite the controversy surrounding it, Jawan has proved to be an enormous success at the box office. The film has broken records and become one of the highest-grossing Bollywood films of all time. With its impressive box office collection, Jawan has firmly established Shah Rukh Khan's position as one of Indian cinema's biggest stars.
