Shah Rukh Khan starrer Jawan enthralled audiences across the globe with its gripping plot, brilliantly choreographed action sequences, masaledaar dialogues and enticing acting prowess! Starring Shah Rukh Khan in the lead alongside acting powerhouses Nayanthara and Vijay Sethupathi, the film is now available in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu on Netflix after creating havoc on the big screen. Helmed by Atlee, the film has become one of his most successful projects of all time, for now.
Atlee says it was Shah Rukh Khan’s vision to make Jawan this big: “When we first met, he said, ‘I am bringing you from the place where you are very successful’”
Speaking to Variety recently, Atlee said that he was fond of the character Azad but when SRK donned Vikram Rathore’s role, he was ecstatic about it. He said, “He was like an innocent kid on the set, enjoying every moment. Once we started shooting Vikram Rathore, he said, ‘This is something I’ve not done, it really excites me.’ All the mass moments of Vikram he really enjoyed and said he’s not done this in 30 years and that is the world I tried to create. That’s the world I think most of this part of cinema has not seen for some time. I think it’s been done before, but in the past 20-30 years, it is not done here. So, I think that is the magic behind the success of Jawan.”
Recalling their first meeting, Atlee continued, “Shah Rukh sir said when we met for the first time, ‘I am bringing you from the place where you are very successful. Once you come here, you have to be the most successful director in the country and you have to be talked about.’ So I said ‘Sir, we will see.’ He said, ‘No, no, that is our first aim and then we will see where the film goes.’ So it is completely Mr. Shah Rukh’s vision to make this film this big.”
Atlee also said that he and his team of writers had watched all of Shah Rukh Khan’s work previously. “We had a thought, this vigilante world he has not tried. And the father role he has done in Veer-Zara (2004), but it’s not that massy, it was very script-oriented. I want to create a massy world for Shah Rukh sir, I wanted to bring the massy-ness of Shah Rukh sir, which he has not exploded for the last 30 years. He has done dramatic roles, he has even done action roles and he has done a Bourne-like role in Pathaan, he has done all genres, but he has never tried the mass zone, mass touch,” Atlee said.
Jawan is a Red Chillies Entertainment presentation directed by Atlee, produced by Gauri Khan, and co-produced by Gaurav Verma. The film was released worldwide in theaters on September 7, 2023, in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.
