Atlee’s action thriller starring Shah Rukh Khan and Nayanthara in the lead roles is already one of the most anticipated films. The film’s shoot kicked off in Pune last week as photos too surfaced on social media.
The pan-India film has reportedly been titled Jawaan and the cast and crew were clicked at the metro station while they were shooting for a hijack sequence.
According to the latest reports South star Rana Daggubati is likely to join the cast of the film to play the antagonist. If Rana does come on board, this will be the first time that he will share screen space with SRK.
Although there is no official confirmation in this matter, multiple rumours are going around. Recently there was a report from an industry insider that Atlee’s film’s screenplay will be partially inspired from the widely popular show Money Heist. Film industry insider Manobala Vijayabalan had tweeted, “#ShahRukhKhan’s next with #Atlee likely to have a sub plot inspired from #MoneyHeist. #Nayanthara #PriyaMani.”
However, talking about the heist angle, a source had earlier revealed, “There are many other facets to the screenplay of Atlee’s next and the heist is just tip of the iceberg in terms of surprise elements.”
“It’s (the film) larger than life yet driven by performance. Atlee masters the art of making double and triple role films, and this is him bringing the genre back to Bollywood with SRK,” Another source reported.
