After Jawan and Pathaan, Shah Rukh Khan’s Dunki mints Rs 422.99 cr, making it the actor’s third-biggest hit

<p>After a tremendous two weeks in cinemas, Shah Rukh Khan’s Dunki has had a great box office run. The movie made Rs 2.20 crore on Friday, increasing its total profits in India to Rs 208.67 crore, according to industry monitoring website Sacnilk. The production company for the movie, Red Chillies Entertainment, said that Dunki brought in a total of Rs 422.99 crore at the worldwide box office. After Jawan and Pathaan, this surpasses Chennai Express’s lifetime earnings to become SRK’s third-biggest success. Even with its success, Dunki hasn’t been able to equal the box office earnings of Hirani’s previous movies, PK and Sanju, which took in Rs 769.89 crore and Rs 588 crore globally, respectively.</p>

<p>Director Rajkumar Hirani recently spoke out about the conflict at the box office between Salaar, starring Prabhas, and Dunki. December 21 saw the release of Dunki, and the next day saw the release of Salaar. Dunki’s first-day revenue of barely Rs 30 crore was achieved. On the other hand, Salaar broke many records to become the largest opening of 2023. On its first day of release in India, the movie took in Rs 95 crore in all languages.</p>
<p>Prior to this, Hirani said in an exclusive interview with News18 Showsha that Shah Rukh was aware that Dunki would not make as much money as his former actors Jawan and Pathaan did.</p>
<p>After starring in two consecutive action movies, Shah Rukh was excited about Dunki. He was pleased to be working in this manner. Being a wise guy, Shah Rukh knew that audiences preferred action movies and following a trend. He had always advised me not to anticipate enormous box office receipts at first. He was aware that it would take time for the film to get traction and that families and viewers would ultimately become interested. He was the one prepping me more than anybody else, and that’s precisely what happened. The director had informed us that he had seen several families gathering in cinemas to watch the movie.</p>
