G20 summit might spoil Delhiites’ Jawan plans? Only these theatres will be affected.

Jawan expected to surpass Shah Rukh Khan‘s Pathaan opening day figures on the first day.

With a 5 a.m. first show in Kolkata, a 6 a.m. one in Jaipur, and tickets selling at a super speed, Shah Rukh Khan’s latest Jawan is expected to break all records with day one earnings at ₹65-70 crore. But could the G20 Summit affect any of it?

Directed by Atlee, the pan-India thriller also stars Vijay Sethupathi and Nayanthara. The film will hit the screens on Thursday.

The G20 summit impact
In Delhi, the film releases ahead of the G20 Summit on September 9-10 with several heads of state, including US President Joe Biden, set to attend the event. While the city will remain open during the weekend, restrictions will be imposed on a small part of the NDMC area.

Bijli said he is not worried about the theatrical business taking a hit in central Delhi because of G20 restrictions. It would mean four PVR theatres — PVR Plaza, Rivoli, Odeon, and ECX Chanakyapuri — shut during the summit.

He said, “They are single-screen theatres with a total capacity of about 2,000 seats, so that wouldn’t have much of an impact because the loss for that will be compensated by the fact that Delhi has a four-day weekend.”

Pathaan was a blockbuster, with reported earnings of ₹1,050 crore. Jawan is a high-octane thriller showing the emotional journey of a man who is set to rectify the wrongs in society”.

The film will be released in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu, premieres at a time when Bollywood theatrical releases — most recent being Gadar 2 and OMG 2 — are raking it in.
