Deepika in Jawan
Deepika plays a “special appearance” in Jawan, but her role is long enough to be seen as a proper part in Atlee's action thriller. She plays Aishwarya, the wife of Shah Rukh Khan's character Vikram Rathore. Deepika is seen wrestling in the mud with her reel husband and dancing with him in a colourful number in the Jawan trailer. She's received rave reviews for her performance in the short yet powerful role in the film that released in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu in cinemas today on the occasion of Janmashtami.
Deepika made her Bollywood debut in Shah Rukh's 2007 production, Farah Khan's reincarnation saga Om Shanti Om. There too, Shah Rukh played a double role, of a father and a son, where Deepika plays her love interest in both capacities. They subsequently acted together in blockbusters Chennai Express, Happy New Year, and most recently, Pathaan earlier this year.
