In the overseas market as well, Jawan is expected to wreak havoc by minting a colossal sum of Rs 50 crore which will take its grand total on day 1 to a towering total of ₹ 123 crore. This will make Shah Rukh the only actor in the industry to give 2 back-to-back highest opening grosses in a single year as no other actor has achieved this feat till now.
Jawan beats Pathan on Day 1
