When asked about the project, Shah Rukh Khan told a website, “It’s too early to tell. More work remains to be done. I have little to add about Jawan other than the fact that I’m having a great time as an actor. And Atlee, the director, has made a one-of-a-kind film. Everyone has taken note of his efforts. He makes fantastic mainstream pictures, something I have never done. So I decided to go for it. And I feel Atlee and I get along great. I bring some and he brings some to the movies. Everything we’ve done with Jawan has been thrilling and exciting.”
Jawan, which will be produced by Red Chillies Productions, will be Shah Rukh’s second film in 2023.
