CNN-News18 Indian of the Year 2023: Here’s why Shah Rukh Khan is the strongest contender to win the biggest award

As the star accepted the award, he said, “It’s not about the box-office or numbers but the desire to entertain.” This was in response to his back-to-back setbacks prior to ‘Pathaan‘. He said he was nervous and scared, since he had the fear of not being able to entertain.

The star had a historic 2023 with two All Time Blockbusters ‘Pathaan‘ and ‘Jawan‘ and delivered his third success with ‘Dunki‘. He created history by amassing over 8 crore footfalls in a single year.

Well, the success spree is not just limited to the box office, the superstar has also created a phenomenon by drawing whooping 8 crore footfalls throughout the year, with Jawan contributing 3.93 Cr., Pathaan3.20 Cr. , and Dunkiover 1 Cr. so far — becoming the first ever Hindi film actor to do so.

Starting the year with a bang, Pathaan raked in 524 Cr. nett (Hindi) and 545 Cr. nett (all languages) in India, and a stellar 1055 Cr. worldwide including a record-breaking 49.25 million USD overseas. Pathaan continues to reign supreme as the highest-grossing Indian film internationally.

It made history as Dunki was featured at Le Grand Rex, the largest cinema in Europe, on Christmas evening, making it the first Bollywood Hindi film to be showcased there. Additionally, the peppy and lovable song Lutt Putt Gaya from the movie was showcased in front of iconic landmarks like the Eiffel Tower and Arc De Triomphe in Paris. Dunki has truly captured the hearts of fans across the globe!
