As per recent reports, Shah Rukh Khan will be starring in Don 3. While Don: The Final Chapter has been confirmed, we are yet to hear an official announcement from Shahrukh Khan. King Khan is going through a rough patch at the boxoffice in domestic market and Pakistan.
Shahrukh Khan managed to give only one film that hit the 20cr mark in Pakistan which was Dilwale, back in 2015. Since then his films have failed to even hit a 15cr mark. In addition, Shahrukh Khan even failed to rule the year of 2015 as Dilwale was not the highest grossing Hindi film of 2015 in Pakistan.
The only Shahrukh Khan starrer to create massive records in Pakistan was Don 2. The film released eight years ago and collected 7.25cr approx becoming the highest grossing Hindi film of its time. The same year saw the release of Shahrukh Khan’s Ra One. Ra One collected 3.5cr approx whereas Don 2’s collection was the double of it.
Furthermore Don 2 broke each and every opening record in Pakistan back then for Hindi films. Don 2 is also the only SRK film to hold every boxoffice record for Hindi films at it’s time.
Now Don: The Final Chapter is in pipelines and given the performance of its previous installment, we have huge expectations from this installment of the franchise. The third part of the much loved film has the potential to restore Shahrukh Khan’s glory.
