South star Vijay Sethupathi has joined Shah Rukh Khan’s forthcoming film, Jawan. In this eagerly awaited Atlee Kumar’s film, Sethupathi is going to portray Shah Rukh’s primary villain. The excitement surrounding this Red Chillies Entertainment production is increased by the addition of Sethupathi.
Currently, a high action fight sequence is being shot between Shah Rukh Khan and Vijay Sethupathi, who plays the antagonist in the film. Nayanthara will be joining the sets soon. Jawan is being currently shot in a massive scale with over 600 junior artists from Madurai and Tirunelveli.
Shah Rukh Khan and the Director Atlee were keen on casting Vijay Sethupathi after Rana Daggubati backed out of the film, citing scheduling conflict due to his ill health. SRK and Sethupathi share a great admiration for each other, and hence, when SRK himself offered Sethupathi this role in Jawan, he couldn’t refuse it. The Super Deluxe actor has altered his entire shooting diary to accommodate Jawan in between at SRK’s request.
Jawan which is billed as a Pan-Indian extravaganza with a massive budget of about 200 crores, is a popular action movie with a narrative that transcends language and location. The shooting of the film is anticipated to conclude by December this year, and it is scheduled to be released on June 2, 2023 in theatres.
The film also includes a cast of Pan-India actors like Nayanthara, Priyamani, Sanya Malhotra, Sunil Grover, and Yogi Babu in key roles among others, as well as Deepika Padukone in a special cameo.
