Jawan marks the first collaboration of SRK with director Atlee. The film received massive response from the audience and has become the fourth highest-grossing Hindi film. On Thursday (September 21), the film minted Rs 7.25 crores which took the film’s total India collection to Rs 473.44 crores. Post the success of the movie, the makers held a press conference in Mumbai. The event was attended by SRK, Deepika Padukone, Sanya Malhotra, Sunil Grover and Atlee.
Sharing his excitement for the success of the movie Shah Rukh Khan said, “It's a celebration. We rarely get a chance to live with a film for years. The making of Jawan has been going on for four years due to Covid and time constraints. There were a lot of people involved in this film, especially people from the South who came and settled in Mumbai and have been living in Mumbai for the last four years and working day and night for this film, which is the hardest work ever.”
Nayanthara, Deepika Padukone, Priyamani, Sanya Malhotra, Ridhi Dogra, Lehar Khan, Girija Oak and Sanjeeta Bhattacharya bring depth and strength to the characters in the film Jawan, which is directed by Atlee. SRK also confirmed the release date of his upcoming movie Dunki at the success event of Jawan. He said, "We started on January 26, Republic Day (with Pathaan), then on Janmashtami we released Jawan, now New Year and Christmas are round the corner, we will release Dunki. I keep National integration. Anyway, when my film is released, it is Eid.”
Helmed by Rajkumar Hirani, the film also stars Taapsee Pannu in the lead role. Dunki marks the first collaboration of the Chak De India actor with 3 Idiots fame director Hirani and actor Taapsee.
