Jawan overseas advance booking

In the US, Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Jawan is off to a very good start and has already sold approximately 4800 tickets worth around $74200 from 289 locations, the report said quoting figures shared by US-based movie distributor Venky Reviews.

The locations and shows for Jawan will reportedly be increased in the coming days as the movie is projected to take a bigger start than Pathaan in the US. Venky Reviews tweeted on Friday, “Jawan USA day 1 advance sales $74,158 – 289 Locations – 1334 shows – 4795 tickets sold. 21 days till shows start.”

Jawan expected to open at around 50 cr overseas

Pathaan grossed around $1.85 million on the opening day in North America, and Jawan will be looking to outgross that number comfortably, reported Sacnilk. Overall, Jawan is expected to earn around 50 crore overseas, which will make it the biggest Bollywood opening ever, beating Pathaan which grossed 37 crore on the opening day overseas, the report added.

Advance booking for Jawan has also started in UAE, three weeks ahead of the film’s release. Several fan accounts of Shah Rukh also claimed that advance booking for the upcoming film has not only begun in the UAE but also in the US, Germany and Australia.
