Shah Rukh Khan: 2023 is turning out to be a golden year for Bollywood’s King Khan, Shahrukh Khan. With back-to-back blockbusters, ‘Pathan’ and ‘Jawan’, Shahrukh has not only added feathers to his cap but has also rewritten box office records. This Bollywood star’s new heights in the Southern film industry are nothing short of a spectacle.

The director of ‘Jawan’, Atlee, hails from the South, and so do the film’s lead actress Nayanthara and antagonist Vijay Sethupathi. This collaboration between Bollywood and the South has indeed paid off, resulting in an epic crossover.

Reports from the trusted entertainment portal, Koimoi, suggest that ‘Jawan’ has amassed a whopping Rs 1069 crore globally. Out of this jaw-dropping figure, India contributed more than Rs 640 crore. Such figures are testimony to the film’s massive success and the appeal it had for audiences across regions.

However, the real surprise has been the overwhelming reception of ‘Jawan’ in the Southern markets. Its dubbed versions in Tamil and Telugu raked in an impressive Rs 60 crores. But that’s not the end of the story. ‘Jawan’ has garnered over Rs 200 crores in the southern states alone, setting a benchmark that was previously deemed unattainable.
