After earth-shattering success of Pathaan, Shah Rukh Khan returned to the big screen with Atlee’s Jawan. The film stars Nayanthara as the female lead and Vijay Sethupathi as the antagonist and released on September 7. On its opening day, Jawan emerged to be the biggest opener of all time in Hindi cinema, and seemingly, the Jawan fever is not going to rest anytime soon.
On Day 2 in theaters, Jawan crossed the Rs 100 crore mark just like that. The action-drama earned Rs 53 crore on its second day, which is comparably less than its Day 1. However, the total earnings of Jawan stand at Rs 127.50 crore, according to Sacnilk.com. On its opening day, Shah Rukh Khan-led film collected Rs 74.5 crore—Rs 65.5 crore, Rs 5.3 crore, and Rs 3.7 crore in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu respectively.
Jawan’s overall occupancy rate on Day 2 was recorded at 42.51 per cent in the Hindi version and the night shows witnessed the highest percentage of the audience.
