Jawan 2: Will Shah Rukh Khan’s successful film get a sequel? Here’s what we know

At a recent event, Atlee revealed details about his future projects, sparking fans’ interest in a potential sequel.

Last year, Atlee made an impressive Bollywood debut in Shah Rukh Khan’s Jawan. The action-packed film, which opened on September 7, 2023, smashed box office records by grossing more than Rs 700 crores internationally in only ten days. At a recent event, Atlee shared details about his upcoming projects, sparking fan curiosity in a possible sequel.

“I am not sure about it. But I will write something, I will surprise. Every film had a chance of coming up with a sequel, but I always surprise the audience with more, different content. So, I will come up with something. Let’s see,” Atlee told ABP.


When asked about the possibility of working with SRK again, the director-producer responded,  “Of course, there is no denial. We’ll work together. When, how, and what is entirely up to Shah Rukh sir.” Atlee also described SRK as the most pleasurable and emotionally motivated person to work with. He also commended SRK’s promptness and active participation in the production process.

However, discussions of a sequel to the film are not entirely new. In a previous interview with Pinkvilla, Atlee was asked about the possibility of a spin-off centred on a certain character. He smiled as he proposed Vikram Rathore, the older version of SRK’s character in the film. In terms of sequels, Atlee remarked that, while many of his films have open endings, he would only consider creating one if he had a compelling concept.

Jawan portrays the gripping story of a prison warden who works with criminals to expose corruption and injustice via daring acts that culminate in an unexpected reunion. In the film, SRK played two characters: Captain Vikram Rathore, an ex-commando, and Azad, a jailer in a women’s prison who is also Vikram’s son.

Aside from SRK, the film has an outstanding cast, including Nayanthara and Vijay Sethupathi in key roles. Deepika Padukone, Sanjay Dutt, Priyamani, Sanya Malhotra, Girija Oak, Lehar Khan, Sunil Grover, Ridhi Dogra, and more well-known actors will star alongside them.

On the professional front, Atlee is now participating in the production of the upcoming action film VD 18. It stars Varun Dhawan, Keerthy Suresh, and Wamiqa Gabbi in important roles. Murad Khetani, Priya Atlee, and Jyoti Deshpande, producers for Cinel Studios and A For Apple Studios, collaborated on the film.
