Shah Rukh on Atlee and Jawan
As quoted by Pinkvilla, the actor referred to Atlee as “he is mass and I am class”. Shah Rukh said, “Every time I thought I have done a cool shot, Atlee sir would be like, ‘No, this is mass and not class'. Whatever I’ve done in the film is because of the love of the team. I get shy, actors get shy to do things, and we feel awkward. I just wanted to make him happy and please him. It is the duty of every actor, whatever film you do, you have to make your director happy because, through his eyes, everybody is going to perceive you and see you. I’m happy I could make him (Atlee) happy.”
