After the successful run of Salman Khan’s films that went into the Rs. 100cr. mark, it was Jab Tak Hai Jaan that broke the same milestone. It took just 11 days for the domestic earnings to reach that mark. Jab Tak Hai Jaan features lead actors like Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif along with Anushka Sharma.
The film was produced at a budget of around Rs. 50 crores. And earning twice the amount only from India is indeed heartening. However, as far as the overall earnings are concerned, Rs. 100 crores were earned within six days only, which also included earnings from overseas as well. The film was released on the day of Diwali – the 13th of this month.
There were a couple of reasons, in fact more, why the film was such a popular production from the YRF house. Firstly, it was the last directorial venture of the late Yash Chopra; secondly, he had taken to direction after as many as eight years since he had made Veer-Zaara.
The final reason and probably the most important of them all, was that the director had roped in Shah Rukh Khan. And it was also the first ever film for SRK along with Katrina Kaif.
