Shah Rukh Khan’s latest film “Jawan,” directed by Atlee, received a positive response from South Indian fans. The movie opened to full houses in Thiruvananthapuram, Chennai, and other cities in the region. Fans praised the performances of the star cast, including Thalapathy Vijay as the villain.
The post spots a ‘coincidence’ between the plot of Jawan and the festival of Janmashtami. Although a major spoiler for those who did not see the film, the tweet has been shared and reposted by many fans and fan clubs. The post finds the similarities between the stories of Shah Rukh’s character in the film and that of the Hindu god, Krishna.”Film was released on Janmashtami. Hero was born in jail in the movie. Was raised by an another mother. He grows up to be a messiah to save the society,” read the post.
The fan went on to add, “Maybe the postponement of #Jawan from June to September was written in the stars.”
Initially, Jawan was slated to June 2023, however, the makers decided to postpone the release, owing to some filming and production delays.
The Atlee directorial features Shah Rukh in a dual role of father and son. It also stars Nayanthara as the leading lady and Viay Sethupathi as the antagonist. The film also stars Deepika Padukone in an extended cameo.
Following the success of the film, Shah Rukh has been taking to his social media handles to respond to fans in a rather unique manner. One such interaction took place when a fan inquired about the abundance of female characters in Jawan.
A fan questioned the superstar, “Itni ladkiyan kyun hai Sir film mein?” (Why are there so many women in the movie, Sir?), Shah Rukh offered a fitting reply, saying, “Yeh sab kyun ginn raha hai, mere good look gin na!! Keep love and respect in your heart and move on.”
Furthermore, in response to the overwhelming positive feedback from fans who had watched ‘Jawan,’ Shah Rukh Khan took to X to express his gratitude. He posted a heartfelt note, stating, “Thank you for all the love and appreciation for #Jawan!! Stay safe and happy… Please continue sharing pictures and videos of your movie enjoyment… I’ll be back soon to see all of them! Until then, enjoy the party with ‘Jawan’ in theaters!! Sending lots of love and gratitude!” This message conveyed his appreciation for the support while encouraging fans to enjoy their time at the movies and to continue to share their experiences.
