Worldwide opening day

Pathaan had taken an earth-shattering start at the worldwide box office on day 1 by raking in 106 crores gross and also became the first Bollywood film to score a century on opening day. Jawan definitely has a huge potential to go well beyond 106 crores and post an unimaginable number.

Indian opening day

Pathaan is the highest Bollywood opener at the Indian box office, with 57 crores. Removing all other dubbed versions, the film also holds the biggest start ever for a Hindi film. With the holiday benefit of Janmashtami (7th September), the opening day of SRK’s recent film is going to become history.

Opening weekend (3-day)

Pathaan was a record smasher as it earned 166.75 crores in the first 3 days. It’s a big task for Jawan to topple and everything will depend on word-of-mouth.

Highest single day in India

Pathaan holds this record like a boss as it scored a colossal 70.50 crores on the Republic Day holiday. Will Jawan be able to cross it on its opening day with the Janmashtami holiday coming in? Let’s see.

Overseas lifetime

Pathaan enjoyed a solid response in overseas and became an all-time blockbuster by earning 402.58 crores gross (excluding phase 2 release). Jawan does have the potential to surpass it but everything depends on word-of-mouth.

Indian lifetime

In India, Pathaan holds the record of being the highest Bollywood grosser with 543.22 crores. For Jawan to cross this number it entirely depends on word-of-mouth.
