Gadar 2’s Reign as India’s Highest-Grossing Hindi Film Lasts Just One Day as Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Jawan’ Surpasses ₹525 Crore Mark
A day after Sunny Deol-starrer Gadar 2 crossed Pathaan’s box office collection in India, earning ₹524.75 crore to become the highest grossing Bollywood film, its record has been broken by another Shah Rukh Khan film. Jawan, which was released almost a month after Gadar 2, is now the highest grossing Hindi film in India. Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to X (formerly Twitter) to share the latest Jawan box office collection.

Background of Jawan
Co-written and directed by Atlee, Jawan is produced by Gauri Khan and Gaurav Verma under Red Chillies Entertainment. The film, which was released on September 7, stars Shah Rukh Khan in a dual role as father and son, who team up to fight corruption.
Nayanthara and Vijay Sethupathi are seen alongside him in lead roles. Deepika Padukone also makes a special appearance in Jawan, which also features Priyamani and Sanya Malhotra, among others. The film’s soundtrack and background score were composed by Anirudh Ravichander.
With Pathaan and Jawan, Shah Rukh Khan has become the only actor in the history of Hindi cinema to deliver two all time top grossers in the same year. Shah Rukh is now gearing up for Dunki, which will be his third release of the year. The film will be out during Christmas and will clash with Prabhas’ Salaar Part 1 – Ceasefire.
