Directed by Atlee, the film boasts of a very impressive ensemble cast, complex plot, action, music and a cocktail of emotions.

Deepika Padukone's extended cameo is also being praised. ...Read More

On Thursday, Jawan opened to houseful theatres and fan celebrations as moviegoers headed to catch the 6am shows. Looking at the excitement for the film, it's not surprising that trade analysts and film industry insiders have predicted a 100 crore opening for Jawan. Not only this, it is set to break the record of Shah Rukh's January blockbuster Pathaan. However, those who were waiting to watch Tiger 3 teaser with Jawan were in for a disappointment as it wasn't attached with the film on Thursday. 

This is Shah Rukh Khan's first film with Nayanthara and stars Vijay Sethupathi as the lead antagonist. It is high on woman power with Deepika Padukone, Priyamani, Sanya Malhotra, Riddhi Dogra, Girija Oak and Sanjeeta Bhattacharya also among the cast members. 

Here's all the action around the film's release:
