Mumbai: Shah Rukh Khan's Jawan is most likely getting a sequel and director Atlee has confirmed plans.
Atlee, known for his blockbuster films like Raja Rani, Theri, Mersal, and Bigil, recently made his Hindi film debut with Jawan, featuring Shah Rukh Khan. The film, which eventually became a Pan India production, is on its way to becoming the highest-grossing Hindi film of all time.
In an exclusive conversation with Pinkvilla, Atlee discussed his plans for the future and the success of Jawan.
When asked about a character he'd like to make a spin-off for, Atlee mentioned, "Vikram Rathore for sure. Vikram Rathore is my hero. Maybe one day, I will make a spin-off to that. Let’s see." He also shared his love for writing strong father characters in his films, saying, "I am a daddy’s boy, and hence, I love to write strong father characters. You can see it in all my films."
Jawan ends with a promise for a sequel, as characters Azad and Vikram Rathore prepare for another mission, this time to combat corruption involving Swiss banks.
When asked if he discussed Jawan 2 with SRK, Atlee stated, "Every film of mine has an open end, but to date, I have never thought of doing a sequel to any of my films. For Jawan, if anything strong comes to me, I will make a part two. I have kept an open end and I can come up with a sequel now or later. But definitely will come up with a sequel to Jawan one day."
Atlee also discussed his thoughts on working with Thalapathy Vijay and SRK in a two-hero film, his aspiration to go bigger with each project, and confirmed being in talks with Allu Arjun.
