SRK has beaten his own record. His new release, Jawan, has overtaken Pathaan to deliver the biggest opening ever for a Hindi-language film. As per the trade reports, Jawan made approximately Rs 75 crore on day one, of which approximately Rs 65 crore has come from the Hindi version, with the remaining Rs 10 crore coming from the dubbed Tamil and Telugu versions.
Jawan has achieved the highest single-day collection for a Hindi film and is the first Hindi film to earn more than Rs 60 crore on its first day. Its release on Janamashtmi no doubt boosted sales, which are expected to skyrocket over the weekend. Pathaan made Rs 57 crore on its first day, breaking a previous record earlier this year. However, it made Rs 70 crore on day two and finished with Rs 543 crore — a record that may soon be broken by Gadar 2, which is currently at around Rs 510 crore.
