For weeks now, there have been rumors that Vijay Sethupathi is part of Jawan, which also stars Nayanthara in a significant role
During the Instagram LIVE hosted by SRK on completing 30 years in movies, he confirmed that Nayanthara was a part of Jawan. He refrained from sharing many details but mentioned, “There is Nayanthara ji in it.”
King Khan also mentioned that it was a “different” kind of film. “Too early to say. There is still a long way to go. There is not much I can tell you about Jawan except the fact that I am having a great time as an actor. And Atlee, the director, it is a different kind of film. Everybody has seen his work. He makes outstanding mass-oriented films, again a genre I have never done. So, I wanted to try my hands on it. And I think me and Atlee have good chemistry. I bring in some (to the film), and he brings in some. Whatever we have done of Jawan is thrilling and exciting,” he said.
SRK’s other projects include 'Pathaan' and 'Dunki'.
