With this, SRK’s ‘Jawan’ has already the advance bookings for Salman Khan’s ‘Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan’, and there is still a week left for the film to hit the silver screens.
SRK will play as many as six different characters in ‘Jawan,’ including a police officer, an army officer, and a bald antihero. The film’s trailer was released by the producers on August 31, and it quickly set the internet on fire and shattered all viewership records.
‘Jawan’ is SRK’s first collaboration with maverick south filmmaker Atlee, and movie also features cameos from Vijay Sethupathi, Nayanthara, and Deepika Padukone, making it the biggest casting coup in recent memory.
SRK smashed the box office with his film ‘Pathaan’ earlier this year, and with the ‘Jawan’ buzz, it appears that the actor will now be contending at the box office with his own flick.
