Shah Rukh Khan is preparing for the much-anticipated release of his upcoming film, “Jawan.” Alongside King Khan, the Atlee-directed project boasts an impressive cast featuring five talented actresses: Nayanthara, Sanya Malhotra, Priyamani, Ridhi Dogra, and Deepika Padukone (who will make a special appearance in the movie). Leading up to the film’s release, SRK recently disclosed what Atlee had shared with him during their initial meeting for “Jawan.”
In a recent video, the superstar revealed that one of the first things the director mentioned to him was the unique dynamic of working alongside five actresses in the film. Shah Rukh Khan fondly reminisced about how he initially crossed paths with Atlee during the making of “Bigil.” It happened while he was attending a cricket match between the Chennai Super Kings and KKR, although his team, KKR, lost as usual. During their interaction, Atlee, driven by his and his wife’s admiration for SRK, showed him the film out of genuine affection, which eventually led to their collaboration.
As the world grappled with the COVID-19 pandemic and SRK found himself spending more time at home, Atlee visited him in Mumbai and proposed the film project. The director described it as a unique opportunity, emphasizing, “It is you, sir, with five girls. My wife and I genuinely believe that you look your best when you share the screen with a group of talented actresses.”
During one of his previous ‘Ask Me Anything’ sessions on social media, Shah Rukh Khan hinted that “Jawan” is centered around the theme of women’s empowerment, underscoring the importance of respecting and standing up for women.
“Jawan” is presented by Red Chillies Entertainment, directed by Atlee, produced by Gauri Khan, and co-produced by Gaurav Verma. This eagerly awaited film is set to hit theaters worldwide on September 7th, 2023, and will be available in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu languages.
