Superstar Shah Rukh Khan recently took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the delay in the release of his upcoming action film “Jawan”. The film, directed by Tamil filmmaker Atlee and produced by Gauri Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment, was originally slated to hit screens on June 2 but has now been pushed to September 7.
Addressing his fans in an #AskSRK session on Twitter, the actor spoke about the importance of time and patience when it comes to delivering a film that is worthy of audiences’ time. He expressed relief that the team, which had been working tirelessly on the project, can now finish the film with ease.
Speaking about his approach to creating a character, Shah Rukh described it as “spiritual” and “respectful to who I am trying to create.” He also called “Jawan” a new genre for him, blending two different ways of making films in tandem.
The film features a star-studded cast including Vijay Sethupathi and Nayanthara, and the music is composed by Anirudh Ravichander. Shah Rukh revealed that the music director and Atlee have made him lip sync a few song lines in Tamil, and he hopes he got them right.
Fans were also treated to a new poster of the film, which shows the actor covered in bandages. When asked about his children’s reaction to his look in the film, Shah Rukh revealed that his youngest, AbRam, thinks he looks like a mummy.
Despite the delay, fans are eagerly anticipating the release of “Jawan” and the opportunity to see Shah Rukh in action once again. His last film, “Pathaan”, which grossed over Rs 1000 crore at the global box office, is now set to release in Bangladesh on May 12.
As for “Jawan”, Shah Rukh’s message to fans is simple: it takes time and patience to deliver something worth audiences’ time, and he hopes that the finished product will be well worth the wait.
