As #JawanTrailer hit the top trends in the country, word got out that the highly anticipated clip fans have patiently been waiting for, will release on Thursday, August 31.This comes just a day after director Karan Johar teased fans by saying that he had already watched ‘the trailer of the century’.
Although KJo didn’t name Jawan in his post, he left very little room for doubt. Shah Rukh mentioned on Saturday that both the Jawan trailer and its song was ready for its release, and asked fans to take their pick about the clip they wanted fist. Interestingly, as the chorus for a trailer grew louder, SRK later announced that it was director Atlee‘s decision to go ahead by releasing the film’s dance number and keep the trailer launch for a later date.
The superstar conducted an #AskSRK session on Twitter where he promised fans that they would get a trailer soon. Replying to a fan’s question, he said, “Trailer nahi aayega toh picture nahi dekhoge kya??!! Trailer trailer trailer ha ha. Aa jayega bhai saans toh Lele….#Jawan.”
Among the many questions that came his way, were some about opening up advance bookings for the film in India. To this, the actor said, “Waiting for all to get their salaries for the month na! Ha ha whole family has to go for #Jawan right?”
Could the trailer launch and advance bookings for the film open on the same date? Our guess is as good as yours.
The makers of Jawan ditched tradition to release a prevue of the film instead of a trailer. Even without a trailer, the film has managed to draw in audiences, earning over $200K in advance bookings at the international market.
Jawan was awarded a U/A certificate with some modifications. The film stars Shah Rukh and Nayanthara in the leading role with Vijay Sethupathi playing the antagonist. Priyamani and Sanya Malhotra also star in the film which will have a cameo by Deepika Padukone.
Jawan is set to release in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi on September 7.
