The teaser opens with a glimpse of the Northern Lights over mountain tops. We then see Shah Rukh with his face in the dark, wrapping bandages on his face as the film’s theme plays in the background. Still shrouded in darkness, he then removes a tarpaulin from a table in the shed he is in to reveal weapons. We then get a glimpse of him shooting at the camera. The next shot gives the first good look at Shah Rukh, sitting with a gun in his hand, face still wrapped in bandages.
A walkie talkie buzzes in the teaser with a female voice saying, “Good to go, chief!” At this, we get a close-up of Shah Rukh’s face as he laughs and says, “Ready!” The film’s title then appears on screen in various languages. The last shot of the teaser shows Shah Rukh sitting on a bench at what appears to be a train station. As a train passes, he sees his dark reflection in the window panes.
Shah Rukh shared the teaser on Instagram on Friday afternoon, writing, “An action-packed 2023!!- Bringing #Jawan to you, an explosive entertainer in cinemas 2nd June 2023. In Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada.”
Fans flooded the comments section of the teaser with compliments for the actor. “Itna chot lagne par bhi jo fantastic lage, woh Shah (Only Shah Rukh can look fantastic despite b this beaten up).” Another fan commented, “This is a killer look. Oh my god!” Many fans commented how Shah Rukh was delivering surprises for fans so often. This is the third film Shah Rukh has announced in the last six months–after Pathaan and Dunki. This comes after he has had no releases since Zero in 2018.
Shah Rukh had been rumoured to be working with Atlee for a few months now. However, neither the actor or the director had commented on it. The two had been spotted together several times and Shah Rukh had even been pictured filming in April with his face in bandages. Over the last two days, several reports had claimed that the film was called Jawan and a teaser was to be released soon.
