In the world of Indian cinema, there are special clubs that movies aspire to join, clubs with membership fees of 100 and 200 crores. But these days, getting into those clubs is no longer a big deal. Some films are zooming past them in just 3-4 days. However, the 300-crore club is still exclusive and impressive, and only a handful of movies have managed to enter it. Shah Rukh Khan’s “Jawan” is set to become the newest and quickest member. Now, let’s see who entered this elite club before him.
Fastest films to enter 300 crore club
1. Jawan- 5 days: 319.08 Cr
The movie Jawan made ₹75 crore on its first day, which was a great start. Even though sales dropped on the second day, which brought in ₹53.23 crore, the weekend was still a huge success. The movie made a high of ₹80.1 crore on its first Sunday, which was its third day at the box office. Estimates at this point say that the movie made 30 crore on its first Monday.
2. Pathaan – 7 days: 318 crores
Shah Rukh Khan‘s return to the silver screen with “Pathaan” was celebrated like a festival by his fans. People couldn’t get enough of him in his action-packed role, where he faced off against John Abraham to save India from a biological war in this action movie directed by Siddharth Anand. Amazingly, the film joined the 300-crore club in just 7 days.
3. Gadar 2 – 8 days: 304 crores
Sunny Deol’s portrayal of Tara Singh rekindled the love for cinema in small towns and rural areas across the country. The film attracted massive crowds and packed single-screen theaters to capacity. Interestingly, “Gadar 2” had to contend with Akshay Kumar’s “OMG 2,” and if that clash hadn’t occurred, it might have reached the 300-crore mark even earlier. Nonetheless, it took the movie 8 days to enter the coveted club.
