Shah Rukh Khan, the King of Bollywood, has once again proved his star power with his latest release Jawan, which has become the highest opening Hindi film ever. The action thriller, directed by Atlee and co-starring Vijay Sethupathi and Nayanthara, has grossed over 300 crore worldwide in just three days of its release. The film has received rave reviews from critics and audiences alike, who have praised Khan’s performance, the screenplay, the music, and the action sequences.
Jawan is Khan’s second film this year, after Pathaan, which was also a blockbuster hit. Pathaan, directed by Siddharth Anand and co-starring Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, was released on January 26, 2023, and became the first Hindi film to cross the 1000 crore mark globally. The film was praised for its high-octane action scenes, shot in exotic locations across the world.
He is set to become the first actor in the Indian film industry to score two 1000 crore movies in a single year, since Jawan continues its winning streak at the ticket windows. Khan has indeed proved that he is the undisputed King of Bollywood.

King Khan’s Comeback After Four-Year Hiatus
Khan’s success with Jawan and Pathaan is even more remarkable considering that he had taken a four-year break from acting after his 2018 film Zero failed to impress the audiences and critics. Khan had said in an interview that he wanted to spend more time with his family and reflect on his career choices. He had also said that he was not interested in doing any more romantic films, which had been his forte for decades.
However, Khan made a comeback with Pathaan, which was a departure from his usual roles. He played a RAW agent against a rival agent (Abraham) who turned into a global terrorist threat. The film also featured a cameo by Salman Khan, who played his character Tiger from the popular spy franchise. Khan then followed it up with Jawan, which was another action-packed film. He played a double role of father and son. The film also featured a cameo by Deepika Padukone, who played the love interest of the actor.
Will Dunki be Shah Rukh Khan’s third 1000 crore film in 2023?
The actor is now gearing up for his third release of the year, Dunki, which is slated to hit the screens on December 22, 2023. The film is directed by Rajkumar Hirani, who is one of the most successful and acclaimed filmmakers in the industry. The film also stars Taapsee Pannu, Boman Irani, and Vicky Kaushal in pivotal roles.
Dunki is a comedy-drama that revolves around the concept of illegal immigration via the ‘Donkey Flight’ method. The film is said to be based on the life of an immigrant in Canada, who faces various challenges and adventures. The film also features cameos by Salman Khan and Deepika Padukone, who have a huge fan following.
Dunki marks the first collaboration between Shah Rukh Khan and Rajkumar Hirani, who have both been known for their unique and entertaining films. Hirani has delivered hits like Munnabhai series, 3 Idiots, PK, and Sanju, which have all been loved by the audiences and critics alike. He has a knack for making films that are socially relevant, humorous, and emotional. He has also worked with some of the biggest stars in Bollywood, such as Aamir Khan, Ranbir Kapoor, and Sanjay Dutt.
Dunki has a festive release date, which is December 22, 2023. The film will benefit from the Christmas and New Year holidays, which usually boost the footfalls in theatres. The film will also face less competition from other releases, as most of the big films have already been released earlier this year. The film has a strong potential to attract the family audiences, who are looking for a fun and light-hearted film to watch during the holidays.
Therefore, Dunki has all the ingredients of a potential blockbuster, and if it lives up to the expectations, it might become Shah Rukh Khan’s third 1000 crore film in 2023. However, the final verdict will depend on the word-of-mouth reviews and the audience’s response after the film’s release. Shah Rukh Khan has indeed proved that he is the undisputed King of Bollywood.
