Karan Arjun was one of the most memorable movie made which was well directed, well scripted with powerful performances given by Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Rakhee and Amrish Puri. Let us see how it fared at the box office.
Karan Arjun was directed by Rakesh Roshan and written by Sachin Bhowmick and Ravi Kapoor. Rakesh Roshan previously made films including the drama Khudgarz (1987), the revenge drama Khoon Bhari Maang (1988) and the comedy-drama Kishen Kanhaiya (1990). Rakesh Roshan has chosen the story of revenge drama which was in line with his previous work, Khoon Bhari Maang, coupled with the re-birth concept.
Dialogues by Anwar Khan were punching. Music by the legend Rajesh Roshan was tuneful. Coming to the performance, I couldn’t have imagined anyone but Salman Khan playing Karan and Shah Rukh Khan playing Arjun. Both the superstars complimented each other in the memorable roles. Rakhee and Amrush Puri were equally effective.
According to the Boxofficeindia.com, Karan Arjun was released on 13th January 1995 at 250 screens to Rs 80,00,000. The film collected Rs 2,24,00,000 in its first weekend and went onto collect Rs 4,28,50,000 in its first week. Karan Arjun ended its theatrical run with Rs 25,28,50,000 against a budget of Rs 6,00,00,000 and was declared “Blockbuster” at the box office.
