Mumbai: The recently released Shah Rukh Khan and Nayanthara-starrer ‘Jawan’ is racing ahead on the box-office with an unstoppable force.
The film, which stars SRK in dual roles of father and son, has knocked off the Sunny Deol-starrer ‘Gadar 2’ as the highest grossing Hindi film.
Earlier, ‘Gadar 2’ edged out another SRK-starrer ‘Pathaan’, which released earlier this year, as it bagged the title for the highest grossing Hindi film ever.
However, the film which rides high on patriotism couldn’t manage to clutch it beyond 24 hours as ‘Jawan’ has now earned Rs 525.5 crore in the Hindi circuit, as per senior film trade analyst Taran Adarsh.
As of now ‘Gadar 2’ stands at Rs 524.75 crore.
Taran Adarsh took to his X, and wrote, “#Jawan crosses *lifetime biz* of #Gadar2 and #Pathaan #Hindi in #India… Now HIGHEST GROSSING FILM in #Hindi in #India #SRK features in Top 3 HIGHEST GROSSING FILMS #Hindi: #Pathaan (No 3) and #Jawan (No 1) (Week 3) Fri 7.10 cr, Sat 11.50 cr, Sun 13.90 cr, Mon 4.90 cr, Tue 4.40 cr, Wed 4.45 cr, Thu 5.81 cr.
