Jawan‘s Competition with Salaar and Pathaan

Jawan has not only created a buzz but has also outperformed its competition in advance bookings. Prabhas’ Salaar which is set to release on September 28 earned INR 5.6 crore in advance bookings, while Shah Rukh Khan’s earlier film, Pathaan secured INR 6.2 crore. However, Jawan has a clear edge over these films due to its multilingual release and broader appeal.

The Synopsis of the Movie

Jawan is a high-octane action thriller that follows the story of Vikram Rathore, a former soldier who leads a team of six skilled women in a series of heists across the country, including hijacking the Mumbai Metro. Simultaneously, he discovers that his long-lost son, Azaad Rathore, is an honest police officer targeted by his nemesis, Kalee, the fourth-largest arms dealer globally. The movie promises to be a visual spectacle with breathtaking action sequences, exotic locations, and a gripping storyline.

Star Cast and Crew of Jawan

Fans eagerly anticipate Shah Rukh Khan’s return to the silver screen after a four-year hiatus since his last film, Zero, in 2018. Jawan marks his first collaboration with director Atlee, who is known for delivering blockbuster films like Theri (2016), Mersal (2017), and Bigil (2019). Additionally, the film marks the Hindi cinema debut of Nayanthara and Vijay Sethupathi. Apart from them, Sanya Malhotra, Priyamani, Girija Oak, Sanjeeta Bhattacharya, Lehar Khan, Aaliyah Qureshi, Ridhi Dogra, Sunil Grover and Mukesh Chhabra appear in pivotal roles. Deepika Padukone (special appearance) is also in the movie. The music is composed by Anirudh Ravichander, with cinematography by G. K. Vishnu.

Production and Distribution of the Film

Gauri Khan and Gaurav Verma, under the banner of Red Chillies Entertainment, are producing Jawan. The film will see distribution through various partners in India and overseas. Premium formats, including IMAX and 4DX screenings, are on the agenda for its release.

Jawan, therefore, is not only generating massive excitement with record-breaking advance ticket sales and high ticket prices. Amidst this exhilarating excitement, the film is all set to compete head-to-head with other major releases like Prabhas’ Salaar and Shah Rukh Khan’s own Pathaan in a battle for a potential blockbuster of 2023. Fans are encouraged to book their tickets early to experience the much-anticipated fusion of Shah Rukh Khan and Atlee on September 7.
