Pathaan, Jawan, Gadar 2: Shah Rukh Khan Breaks Records in Blockbuster 2023, Salman Khan’s Tiger 3 Falls Short

Mumbai, India – Shah Rukh Khan made waves in 2023 with his films ‘Pathaan’ and ‘Jawan’, setting a new standard in the industry. With three releases under his belt, it was undoubtedly SRK’s year. Although he ended the year with ‘Dunki’, the film fell short of the high expectations set by his previous two projects. Another highly-anticipated film of 2023 was ‘Tiger 3’, starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif. Although it didn’t match the success of ‘Pathaan’ and ‘Jawan’, ‘Tiger 3’ still garnered positive feedback from moviegoers.

Director Sanjay Gupta, known for his work on ‘Kaante’, shared his opinion that ‘Tiger 3’ would have fared differently if it had been released before ‘Jawan’. Gupta expressed his admiration for Atlee, the director of ‘Jawan’, stating that Atlee had set a new standard with every scene he shot. ‘Tiger 3’ managed to gross Rs 450 crore at the global box office after its release.

In contrast, both ‘Jawan’ and ‘Pathaan’ crossed the Rs 1000 crore worldwide gross mark. Directed by Atlee, ‘Jawan’ became the highest-grossing Indian movie of 2023. On the other hand, ‘Tiger 3’, helmed by Maneesh Sharma, has now begun streaming on OTT platforms. The film also stars Emraan Hashmi alongside Salman and Katrina.

Fans of ‘Jawan’ were captivated by the chemistry between Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone, despite her cameo appearance. The duo’s on-screen pairing was one of the major highlights of the movie. Nayanthara, Vijay Sethupathi, Sanya Malhotra, Deepika Padukone, and Sanjay Dutt featured in supporting roles.

Having experienced a successful year in 2023, Shah Rukh Khan revealed in an interview that he plans to commence shooting for his next film in March or April 2024. Although he didn’t disclose the name of the project, reports suggest that he will be working on Sujoy Ghosh’s upcoming film, which stars his daughter Suhana Khan.

In summary, Shah Rukh Khan’s films ‘Pathaan’ and ‘Jawan’ made significant waves in 2023, while ‘Tiger 3’ also found success at the box office. Despite ‘Tiger 3’ not reaching the same level of acclaim as the former two films, it still garnered positive feedback. With his stellar performances in 2023, Shah Rukh Khan is eagerly preparing for his next venture in the film industry.
