While character details have been under wrap, sources claim that Shah Rukh Khan will play Raj Vardhan Thakur. In addition to the superstar, the Jawan cast also features Vijay Sethupathi, Nayanthara, Sanya Malhotra, and Priyamani in lead roles. 

The rumored cast on IMDb also says that Deepika Padukone and Sanjay Dutt will be a part of the film, but if their roles are mere cameos or extended guest appearances is still under wraps. 

Who is making Jawan? 

Tamil filmmaker Atlee is directing Jawan. This is Atlee’s first Hindi-language film and collaboration with King Khan but down South, he is famous for Blockbuster movies like the Joseph Vijay starrer Theri (2016), Mersal (2017), and Bigil (2019). 

The film is produced by SRK’s very own Red Chillies Entertainment, with music by the exceptional Anirudh Ravichander (Vikram, David, 3) and shot by G.K Vishnu (who has been an old collaborator of Atlee).

Jawan Release Date: 

Jawan is set to hit movie theatres across India and worldwide on June 2nd, 2023. However, the lack of promotion from Red Chillies Entertainment recently sparked a row among angry SRK fans, leading us to speculate that the release date may change anytime.
