Excitement soared among fans on Monday as the makers of the film “Jawan” unveiled their latest poster, featuring the versatile Vijay Sethupathi, aptly nicknamed “The dealer of death.” The poster showcased a closeup of the acclaimed actor, donning a fierce look with goggles on. Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan himself shared the poster on his social media handles, teasing viewers with a caption that suggested unstoppable suspense, “There’s no stopping him… or is there? Watch out!”
The captivating poster received accolades from many, including actress Bhumi Pednekar, who expressed her enthusiasm with a comment, “excitement level is 100.”
Earlier, the makers had intrigued fans with another poster displaying an eye, leaving them guessing about the identity of the person. The speculation, however, pointed towards Vijay Sethupathi, which later seemed confirmed. In a prior poster, Shah Rukh Khan had introduced Nayanthara, his co-star, as a formidable and bold character with a “Tomb Raider-like” appearance, earning praise from fans.
The movie “Jawan” is not short of compelling visuals, as it also presented Shah Rukh Khan in a fan-favorite look, sans hair, with a caption befitting his villainous role, “Jab main villain banta hoon na toh mere saamne koi bhi hero tik nahin sakta” (When I become a villain, no hero can stand in front of me). This announcement garnered excitement from fellow Bollywood celebrities like Ranveer Singh, Arjun Bijlani, and Gautam Gulati, who praised the electrifying poster.
On Twitter, Shah Rukh Khan conveyed gratitude to his co-stars and the crew of “Jawan” for their efforts. However, he reserved a special note of affection for Vijay Sethupathi, thanking him for teaching him a bit of Tamil and for the delightful food he brought to the sets.
The film “Jawan,” directed by Atlee, boasts a star-studded cast, including Shah Rukh Khan, Nayanthara, Vijay Sethupathi, and Deepika Padukone in a special appearance. Scheduled for a September 7 release, the movie will captivate audiences in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu languages, promising an enthralling cinematic experience.
