Shah Rukh Khan Took Home 43% While Nayanthara Was Paid 3.6% Of Jawan’s Budget – Atlee’s Salary, Box Office Collection & More

Shah Rukh Khan made his Bollywood comeback in 2023, and what a tremendous year it was at the box office! After delivering a major blockbuster with Pathaan, the superstar united with Atlee to continue his streak of success with Jawan. But do you know how much SRK and Nayanthara were paid for the action flick? Scroll below for all the details!

Shah Rukh Khan starrer was reportedly mounted on a staggering budget of 300 crores. The action thriller passed with flying colors at the box office. It made a box office collection of 640.42 crores and became the highest-grossing Bollywood film in India.

After the massive success of Pathaan, Shah Rukh Khan opted for profit sharing for his second release in 2023. While ideally, he would make around 50-60 crores in salary, the superstar earned a staggering sum of 130 crores, as per rumors. This makes up almost 43% of the budget!

Nayanthara’s salary for Jawan

On the other hand, Shah Rukh Khan’s leading lady charged a sum of 11 crores for Jawan. Leading actresses of Bollywood take home around 10-12 crores, so Nayanthara seemed to have matched upto this amount.

This means Nayanthara took home almost 3.6% of Jawan’s budget in salary.

Atlee’s remuneration

Atlee is considered no less than a superstar in the South. His movies like Bigil, Theri, and Raja Rani are huge successes worldwide. The director also came at a hefty price as he charged around 30 crores for Shah Rukh Khan starrer. That makes up about 10% of the cost.

It would be interesting to note that Atlee, Shah Rukh Khan & Nayanthara alone cost 57%, but the risk paid off pretty well for the producers!

Worldwide box office collection

The action thriller broke several records in the overseas markets as well. It is currently the second-highest-grossing Bollywood film at the box office worldwide.

Jawan added 1435 crores gross from international circuits while the gross collection from India was 757.62 crores. The overall collections were 1163.62 crores.

Number 1 on the list is Aamir Khan starrer Dangal, with worldwide earnings of 1970 crores gross.
