Mumbai: Shah Rukh Khan's new film 'Jawan' directed by Atlee Kumar has stormed into the Rs 600 crore club worldwide within only six days of its release.
Despite the critical India vs Pakistan Asia Cup match on Monday, the film maintained a strong grip on the box office and on Tuesday, amassed approximately Rs 24-25 crores in Hindi and an additional Rs 2 crores in other languages. A total of Rs 26.50 crores were reported yesterday.
The Hindi version of the film alone has surpassed Rs 300 crores in a week. And dubbed versions contributed to an overall collection of over Rs 340 crores.
Jawan is setting sights on the Rs 1,000 crores club, making it SRK's second film this year after Pathaan to achieve this feat. With no significant competition in the coming weeks and strong advance bookings, the film is well-positioned to target all-time lifetime records.
Jawan has not only dominated the Indian box office but has also made history in Germany. It became the first Indian film to dominate the German box office on Monday with EUR 97,000 and outshining Hollywood release The Equalizer 3 which earned EUR 93,000.
The SRK film entered the German market at number three with an opening day record for Indian films with a box office collection of EUR 147,000. The film's success continued on Friday with EUR 150,000.
The film's German distributor Kannada Talkies played a crucial role and the European country has seen significant growth in recent years for Indian films.
The cumulative earnings of Jawan in Germany have now reached an impressive EUR 419,000. This mirrors the film's success in Australia, the UK, Canada, New Zealand, the Middle East, and other major markets.
