Shah Rukh Khan and Tamil director Atlee team up for ‘Jawan’


Superstar Shah Rukh Khan on Friday released the teaser of action-entertainer “Jawan”, his long anticipated collaboration with Tamil filmmaker Atlee.

“Jawan”, a pan India release, promises to be a spectacular event film with high octane action sequences and talent assembled from across Indian cinema.

“An action-packed 2023!! Bringing #Jawan to you, an explosive entertainer in cinemas 2nd June 2023. In Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada. @gaurikhan @Atlee_dir @RedChilliesEnt,” he tweeted.

“Credit goes to Atlee for creating this unique film, which has also been a fantastic experience for me as I love action films! The teaser is the just tip of the iceberg and gives a glimpse into what’s to come,” Khan said in a statement.

“I want to give the audiences an exceptional experience, an event which they all can enjoy together and who better to deliver it than Shah Rukh Khan himself, presented like never before,” Atlee said.

“Jawan” is produced by Khan’s production company Red Chillies Entertainment.

The film will release across five languages — Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada in theatres across the globe on June 2, 2023.

Khan, whose last release was 2018 film “Zero”, has a busy slate ahead with Yash Raj Films’ “Pathaan”, scheduled to be released on January 25, and Rajkumar Hirani-directed “Dunki”, set to hit the theatres in December next year.
