Nayanthara’s Role Gets a Revamp
While “Jawan” was undeniably a massive hit, fans of Lady superstar Nayanthara were initially disappointed by the limited screen time her character received in the theatrical release. Shah Rukh Khan himself expressed his own disappointment during a Twitter chat with fans. He explained that “Jawan” was such a vast and intricate film that, due to time constraints, they couldn’t delve into the full journey of Nayanthara’s character, Narmada, who is a single mother and a super cop.
However, the good news for Nayanthara’s fans is that with the film’s release on OTT, an extended version is now available. This extended version allows fans to witness more of Nayanthara’s character, providing a deeper and more fulfilling viewing experience. The film has been re-released with a 5-minute extension, making the OTT version a total of 2 hours and 50 minutes, compared to the 2 hours and 45 minutes of the theatrical release.
A Blockbuster Success
“Jawan” was not just a hit; it was a massive blockbuster in the Indian film industry. The film raked in a staggering 627 crore rupees in India, making it the highest-earning Hindi film of its time. Shah Rukh Khan’s performance and the film’s storyline resonated with audiences, cementing its place as a timeless classic.
The extended release of “Jawan” on OTT is a wonderful opportunity for fans to relive the magic of this blockbuster film and enjoy the added dimension of Nayanthara’s character. The film is now available for streaming on Netflix in all languages, and it couldn’t have come at a better time than Shah Rukh Khan’s 58th birthday.
