The cast of the upcoming movie Jawan, starring Atlee and Shah Rukh Khan, appears to be growing better all the time. It appears that Vijay Sethupathi, who has provided some remarkable performances in movies like Vikram Vedha, Super Deluxe, and the most recent Vikram, is yet another star to join the cast of this high-budget action drama. The South actor will play a crucial part in the movie, and according to rumors, he was brought on board when Rana Daggubati left the production.
According to Peeping Moon reports, a source was reported as stating, "After Rana Daggubati withdrew from the project, claiming schedule issue owing to his ailing health, Shah Rukh Khan and Atlee were keen on casting Vijay Sethupathi. Because of their mutual affection for one another, Sethupathi couldn't say no when SRK personally gave him the part in Jawan. At SRK's request, the actor completely changed his shooting schedule to include Jawan in between".
According to these rumors, the South star will portray a villain in the film and will join the rest of the team for their shoot in Chennai by the end of August.
Red Chillies Entertainment has not yet commented on it, but rumor has it that the movie also has a strong cast of South and Bollywood actors. The movie has performers like Yogi Babu in addition to females from both sectors, including Sanya Malhotra and Nayanthara, according to rumors.
Regarding Jawan, the action comedy is rumored to be a pan-Indian film and to be released in a variety of languages. It is set to be released in theatres on June 2, 2023.
