While 'Gadar 2' initially posed a formidable challenge at the box office, amassing ₹516 crore, 'Jawan' now stands just ₹27 crore away from surpassing 'Pathaan's' all-time record as the biggest Hindi-language hit in India. The success of 'Jawan' is not only set to eclipse 'Gadar 2' in the coming days but also threatens 'Pathaan's' position. 'Pathaan' marked Shah Rukh Khan's triumphant return after a five-year hiatus, signaling a resurgence in his career following a string of underperforming movies.

The triumphant run of 'Pathaan,' 'Gadar 2,' and 'Jawan' signifies a renaissance for Bollywood, harkening back to its pre-pandemic glory days after a period of uncertainty. Hits such as 'Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani,' 'Dream Girl 2,' 'Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar,' 'Zara Hatke Zara Bachke,' 'Satyaprem Ki Katha,' and 'The Kerala Story' have also played their part in revitalizing the industry. Shah Rukh Khan is poised to continue his winning streak later this year with Rajkumar Hirani's much-anticipated 'Dunki.'
