While Jawan continues to rake in numbers almost a month after its release in theatres, the Shah Rukh Khan starrer has been a talking point about the political and other issues it tackles. From farmers’ suicides to medical negligence to voting, everything has been pointed out in the film. However, Atlee Kumar, director of the movie, says that the movie is not anti-establishment but a layman’s voice.Atlee says Shah Rukh Khan starrer Jawan is not anti-establishment: “One should know who to vote for and how to vote and read the manual”
Speaking about it, Atlee said at India Today Conclave 2023, “No (it is not anti-establishment), I am just talking about my emotion. I am a layman. I am also a part of the society. I am just talking about my emotions and the film. You can take it whatever way you want. It is a common audience voice. It is the voice of Indian emotion. I am not specifying anything but I am talking about real issues. One should know who to vote for and how to vote and read the manual. I am just describing what responsibility is. This dialogue should connect with the audience in the right way. If a coach teaches a student how to goal, it is not for the match, it is for a lifetime. So I will say, a message for a lifetime.”
He further said, “I am also part of the press, media. So I should make entertainment with responsibility. If it’s only entertainment, I feel that I am not doing my job. I just get the real emotions- what is going around and what we are doing as a society to counter. I am not specifying anything but I am talking about real issues. One should know who to vote for and how to vote and read the manual. I am just describing what responsibility is.”
Directed by Atlee, Jawan is produced by Gauri Khan and Gaurav Verma under Red Chillies Entertainment. The film was released on September 7, 2023 in theatres.
