Shah Rukh Khan starrer Jawan has been in the news ever since it was announced. The fusion of Bollywood’s iconic superstar with the massy south filmmaker Atlee Kumar was enough to generate excitement among the fans of both. Later on, the film’s prevue added onto the anticipation. But the release of the film’s trailer yesterday has ensured that nothing can stop Jawan at the box office, as far as the film’s opening is concerned.
Bollywood Hungama reported earlier in the day that the film had sold as many as 79,500 tickets in the two biggest multiplex chains in India for the first day till 2:45 pm. Following this, the sale of the tickets has been rapid in the following hours. Till 9 pm today, Jawan has managed to sell 124,000 tickets so far for Day 1.
Breaking that number up, Jawan sold 103,000 tickets in PVR Inox and 21.000 tickets in Cinepolis. One needs to note that these are the numbers only for the film’s opening day on September 7. In addition, these numbers are only from the top 2 multiplex chains of India and they don’t contain numbers from various other multiplex chains and the single screen theatres all over India.
Produced by SRK’s Red Chillies Entertainment, Jawan also stars Nayanthara, Vijay Sethupathi, Sanya Malhotra, Ridhi Dogra, Sanjeeta Bhattacharya and Deepika Padukone in a cameo.
