Sanya Malhotra’s excitement unleashed as she recalls the day of official announcement Shah Rukh Khan starrer Jawan says “I got a call from my manager saying…”
Shah Rukh Khan starrer Jawan has garnered immense anticipation and is considered one of the highly anticipated movies of the year. Fans and audiences are eagerly looking forward to witnessing Shah Rukh Khan’s performance in this film, which has generated significant buzz and excitement. Joining him on screen will be Dangal fame Sanya Malhotra. The actress shared that it was her long-awaited desire to collaborate with Shah Rukh Khan. While she had been aware of it previously, what matters most to her now is that she can openly discuss her involvement in Shah Rukh Khan’s film, Jawan. During a recent interview the actress candidly expressed her joy about her dream coming true and how she used to skilfully avoid inquiries regarding Jawan until an official confirmation was made. She also recalled the time when she got call to make the news official on social media.
When asked about the wrap of the film, Sanya told film critic Sucharita Tyagi, “Ho gaya hai (it is done). And I am a part of it. And the fact that I can talk about it, mai toh uski baat karne mein hi itni khush hun (I am just happy that I am finally being able to talk about it)” and started laughing. She further added, “Now, finally I am able to tell people, kyunki uss se pehle toh log puchte, ‘Are you a part of Jawan?’ and main itni kharab answer deti thi, like ‘I hope I get to work with Shah Rukh Khan,’ I was dodging these questions horribly.”
Sanya Malhotra reminisced about the moment her manager gave her the green light to share the news about Jawan on social media. “I got to post about it. It was a Sunday when I posted that and I got a call from my manager saying, ‘Sanya, there is a creative coming in and we need to post about Jawan.’ I said ‘We need to post about Jawan? Are you sure this information is right?’ I was so happy because this was right before Kathal was released and I was giving interviews and I was asked this question frequently. And I just didn’t know how to not look stupid while answering those questions. But luckily, they announced it right before Kathal.”
Directed by Atlee Kumar and also starring Nayanthara and Vijay Sethupathi, Jawan was earlier supposed to release in June this year. But, earlier this month, the makers of the Red Chillies production postponed the film to September 7 as they needed more time to work on the VFX of the film.
