Following the huge success of Atlee’s Jawan, Shah Rukh Khan is all set for a media meet at the YRF studios today. Ahead of the big event, his manager, Pooja Dadlani, took to Instagram to share his look. Shah Rukh Khan can be seen in a crisp, white shirt paired with a black blazer with a belt detailing near the waist. He pulled his long locks back in braids. He accessorised the look with stacked bracelets.
Meanwhile, Deepika Padukone slipped into a white chiffon sari with black, sequined border, and a halter-neck blouse. She accessorised the look with emerald drop earrings and opted for dramatic, winged eyeliner. At the press conference, Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone also shook a leg to Jawan’s hit romantic song, Chaleya, as music composer Anirudh Ravichander, crooned the song.
Speaking about playing a cameo in the film, Deepika said, “I am now discovering that I was fooled and conned. I was shooting for Project K in Hyderabad and Atlee and Shah Rukh flew down to Hyderabad, narrated the whole story to me. They told me about this very important part, Aishwarya. For me, it wasn’t about the length of the role but the impact this character was going to have on the entire film. It was two -fold – one, everyone knows my love for him, whatever he wants, I’ll always be there and two, the movie was so special that any actor would have said yes to it. When Shah Rukh and I work together, we are not co-stars. It’s not formal, there’s just a lot of love and it always comes through.”
An overwhelmed Deepika Padukone also gave a standing ovation to Anuridh and singer-rapper Raja Kumari, who has lent her vocals for the high-octane title track of Jawan and also performed the song live at the event.
