In the realm of global cinema, Jawan has emerged victorious over Pathaan, securing a substantial lead in India with an impressive gross of Rs. 761 crore, elevating its worldwide earnings to Rs. 1166 crore.
Jawan has gracefully concluded its international box office journey, amassing an astounding USD 48.75 million (Rs. 405 crore). This accolade positions the Shah Rukh Khan starrer as the second-highest-grossing Bollywood film overseas, excluding China, trailing only behind his earlier release of the year, Pathaan, which garnered USD 49.50 million. Notably, Jawan’s triumph on the global stage is attributed to its significant lead in India, surpassing Pathaan’s total earnings of Rs. 1047 crore.
The dynamic duo of SRK’s Jawan and Pathaan has not merely rewritten records; they have propelled the overseas box office to unparalleled heights. In contrast to previous years, where top-performing Bollywood films hovered around the USD 20-30 million range, Jawan and Pathaan have doubled that number, approaching the coveted USD 50 million milestone.
Analyzing the nuanced differences between Jawan and Pathaan, a USD 750K distinction surfaces in overseas earnings. Approximately USD 350K can be attributed to releases in Japan and Russia, a feat that Jawan is poised to replicate in the future. The remaining difference is largely influenced by exchange rate fluctuations, rendering both films comparable. However, their regional performance differs, with Jawan dominating in Asia and Pathaan leading by a comparable margin in Europe and the Americas.
Jawan’s standout performance is notably observed in Gulf countries, where it reigns as the highest-grossing Indian film of all time, surpassing even the formidable Pathaan. Bangladesh, which lifted its long-standing ban on Indian films this year, witnessed a phenomenal turnout, crossing the million-dollar mark. Additionally, Singapore and Sri Lanka reported record-breaking numbers for a Bollywood film, while Australia narrowly missed securing the top spot. In North America, the United Kingdom, Europe, and New Zealand, Jawan stands as the second-highest-grossing film, trailing only behind Pathaan.
