"This will be the big daddy of all films!!!"
Fans were left stunned after clips of Shah Rukh Khan’s Jawan were leaked.
Clips have circulated on social media, with many netizens sharing them.
One seemed to be SRK’s entry scene in the upcoming Atlee film and it showed a brand new appearance. Wearing a red shirt and a bandage over his bloodied face, Shah Rukh looks into the camera whilst holding a gun.
It cuts to another shot, showing the actor looking much older, sporting grey hair and a beard.
Meanwhile, the lyrics chant in the background:
“Everybody is a gangster till you see the monster.”
The combination of Shah Rukh’s appearance and the music indicates that the actor will be playing a menacing character.
Another appeared to show an action sequence, hinting at what to expect in Jawan.
Wearing blue trousers and a blue shirt, Shah Rukh takes on a group of bad guys. He beats them with ease, using what appears to be a belt, all while smoking a cigarette.
The clip is being circulated more rapidly and being removed just as fast for violating Red Chillies copyright.
Fans seemed to be impressed by what they saw, with one posting:
“This will be the big daddy of all films!!! Can’t wait. This is sure to break every single record.”
Others believe the film will break Pathaan‘s box office records, with one claiming:
“Jawan will be the first Bollywood movie to collect Rs. 800 Crore just in India.”
Some urged users to stop sharing the clips.
A statement read: “Sincerely requesting everyone to refrain from sharing leaked pictures from the sets of Jawan.
“The team is working extremely hard to make the movie a perfect gift for all the fans and in return, we request you to be a little patient.
“Please don’t share the pics and if you come across anyone sharing, ask them to remove the post. Thank you.”
Jawan also stars Nayanthara and Vijay Sethupathi.
During a fan interaction, one asked SRK:
“Hi sir. How was it working with Nayanthara? Any special thing about mam..”
SRK replied: “She is very sweet. Speaks all languages so well… fantastic experience. Hope you all will like her in the film.”
The film is set to release on June 2, 2023. Afterwards, Shah Rukh will get ready for Dunki.
He previously stated that he has no plans to retire from acting. SRK said:
“I will never retire from acting… I will have to be fired… And maybe even then I will come back hotter.”
Although he will continue acting, Shah Rukh admitted that he feels “awkward seeing myself on screen”.
