Shah Rukh Khan, the king of Bollywood, is having a busy year in 2023. After making a smashing comeback with Pathaan, which became his all-time biggest hit, he is ready to entertain his fans again with his second film of the year, Jawan. The film, directed by Atlee, is a multi-starrer action thriller that also features Nayanthara, Vijay Sethupathi, Deepika Padukone, Priyamani and Sanya Malhotra. The film has been made on a massive budget of Rs 300 crore and has been released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu languages. But how much did Shah Rukh Khan earn for his second film of 2023? Let’s find out.
Shah Rukh Khan’s Fee for Jawan
According to various sources, Shah Rukh Khan is the highest-paid actor of Jawan. He reportedly charged Rs 100 crore as his fee for playing a double role in the film. He is also entitled to a huge 60 per cent share of the film’s profit, which is expected to be enormous given the positive response and the high screen count of the film.
Shah Rukh Khan’s Pay Cut from Pathaan
Shah Rukh Khan’s fee for Jawan may seem astronomical, but it is actually on the lower end compared to his previous film, Pathaan. This is because he has taken a pay cut from his usual remuneration of Rs 50-60 crore per film and opted for a profit-sharing model, where he charges a low signing fee and gets a major chunk of the film’s profit. This way, he reduces the risk for the producers and also ensures that he gets a fair share of the film’s success. A lot of actors like Akshay Kumar, Aamir Khan and Salman Khan also work on this model, which is beneficial for both the actors and the producers.
Shah Rukh Khan’s Box Office Record
Shah Rukh Khan has been one of the most bankable stars in Bollywood for decades. He has delivered many blockbuster hits like Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Chennai Express, Happy New Year and more. His last release, Zero, in 2018, however, was a disappointment at the box office and received mixed reviews from critics and audiences. With Pathaan and Jawan, Shah Rukh Khan has bounced back with a bang and has proved that he still has the charisma and the star power to pull off two massive hits in a year. Jawan has already beaten SRK’s previous record of Pathaan’s Day 1 opening box-office collection
