We told you, Diwali and Shah Rukh films are synonymous. In 2012 too, the superstar enjoyed a Diwali release. This time, it was Yash Chopra's swan song, Jab Tak Hai Jaan. The SRK-Katrina Kaif-Anushka Sharma starrer clashed at the box-office with Ajay Devgn-Sonakshi Sinha starrer Son Of Sardaar.
Despite the face-off, both films were box-office hits. While Jab Tak Hai Jaan's lifetime collections were to the tune of 1,01,59,00,000 (all time rank - 107), Son Of Sardaar collected Rs. 88.68 crore (all time rank - 110).
