Hugh Jackman’s last outing as Wolverine in the recently released Logan is being loved by everyone, which is quite evident from the box office numbers as the film managed to beat the Vidyut Jammwal starter Commando 2: The Black Money Trail on the second day of its release. While it’s day 1 collection in India were less than Commando 2, the day 2 collections have a different story to tell. Logan has made Rs 5.75 on day 2, bringing it’s grand total to Rs 10.50. Commando 2 only managed to earn Rs 9.56 at the box office.

“Logan sees a 20 % jump from day one! Records 5.75 Cr net on day 2! Fri -4.75 CR + Sat 5.75 cr , Total- 10cr net. With strong word of mouth and excellent reviews, Logan is aiming for a fabulous weekend number,” reads a statement released by the makers of the film, that also stars Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier.

This is the last time we saw Hugh as Wolverine as the actor said that Logan marks an end of his journey in the X-Men universe. As fans are still coming to terms with this news, Hugh also said that he is okay with the thought of someone else taking over the role of Wolverine after him. In an interview with Rajeev Masand, he mentioned that he doesn’t mind Shah Rukh Khan playing it. “I hope other people play it. Maybe Shah Rukh Khan can play it,” he said. And guess what? SRK is all game for playing the character.

Reacting to a post by a fan on Twitter which said why she wants Shah Rukh to play Wolverine, SRK tweeted: “Hair on the chest lady… Need hair on the chest!! Working on it, though. Love Hugh and Wolverine.” Now, we know that this is all being said in good humor, and are not even speculations. But there is always some hope in the world, right? Imagine if SRK actually ends up playing Wolverine? It will definitely be a dream come true for his legion of fans
