SRK-Atlee's Jawan is expected to earn Rs 85 cr on opening day
Trade analysts predict that "Jawan" will set new records, with a potential net box office collection of Rs 60-65 crore on the first day in Hindi alone.
The film's South Indian appeal is strong due to director Atlee and the presence of top stars like Vijay Sethupathi and Nayantara.
"Jawan" is also expected to surpass "Pathaan's" opening day collection of Rs 57 crore in India.
In the USA and Canada, "Jawan" bookings began a month before release, already earning over $210k in ticket sales across 450 locations.
This contrasts with "Pathaan," which earned about $68,000 in the same time frame.
