‘Jawan,’ the film that brought SRK and the classic Yezdi together, has enjoyed tremendous success. Shah Rukh Khan’s performance in the movie has received praise, and the film has resonated with audiences across the country.

Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh posted on social media platform X that ‘Jawan’ turned out to be the fastest Bollywood movie to surpass 300 crore mark on Day 6 of its release followed by Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Pathaan’ that achieved this feat in 7 days. The cumulative earnings of ‘Jawan,’ across all languages in India, currently amount to 346.30 crore.

The film was released in theatres on September 7 in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu versions. The film boasts a star-studded cast, including Nayanthara and Vijay Sethupathi alongside Shah Rukh Khan. Deepika Padukone also plays a special role as Shah Rukh’s mother in the movie. Other actors in the film include Priyamani, Sanya Malhotra, Lehar Khan, Sanjeeta Bhattacharya, and Ridhi Dogra.
