In the realm of Indian cinema, Shah Rukh Khan has once again demonstrated his unparalleled star power. The year 2023 marked a triumphant comeback for the Bollywood superstar, delivering not one but three blockbuster hits – Pathaan, Jawan, and Dunki.

Currently, Shah Rukh’s third release, Dunki, directed by Rajkumar Hirani, continues its success at the global box office. After crossing the coveted INR 400 crore (INR 4 billion) mark globally, the film is anticipated to gross INR 200 crore (INR 2 billion) at the domestic box office, according to Hindustan Times.

Shah Rukh’s journey to the INR 25 billion club commenced with the release of Pathaan in January 2023. The film, marking his return to the big screen after a four-year hiatus, featured an ensemble cast, including John Abraham, Deepika Padukone, and Dimple Kapadia.

Following this early triumph, Jawan hit screens on September 7, showcasing Shah Rukh in an action-packed avatar. Directed by Atlee, the film boasted a stellar cast, including Nayanthara, Vijay Sethupathi, Sanya Malhotra, Priyamani, and Ridhi Dogra. ‘Jawan’ sustained the winning streak, underscoring Shah Rukh Khan’s versatility as an actor.

Closing the year on a high note, Shah Rukh’s Dunki, released on December 21 and still running in Indian cinemas, features an ensemble cast, narrating the emotional journey of a group of friends seeking a new life abroad.
