Jawan, starring Shah Rukh Khan, Nayanthara and Vijay Sethupathi, refuses to slow down at the box office despite nearly two weeks of its release. The Atlee directorial continues to make moolah at the ticket window. On its second Sunday, Jawan reportedly earned around Rs 13.16 crores nett in all languages. Two weeks after the film’s release, Shah Rukh Khan took to X (formerly Twitter) and engaged in an #AskSRK session with his fans.
A fan asked if he has philanthropic plans now that the film is a blockbuster. To this, Shah Rukh Khan said, “Yeah the whole family has been saying it. Will start with all our partners that Meer Foundation works with to show everyone the film. Being an entertainer if I can make all of them smile it will be most satisfying. Telling @RedChilliesEnt just now. Tks for the idea.” When another fan asked him about Meer foundation and pointed out that not many are aware of his philanthropic deeds, he wrote, “I think we are moving in the right direction and helping as many as we can to lead a happier life. No need to talk about that. But very excited I have just told them to show the film #Jawan to all NGOs this week. All over. Somebody just gave me that idea so feeling happy.”
And Shah Rukh Khan has indeed kept his promise. His Meer Foundation, known for its commitment to societal betterment, conducted special screenings of Jawan. These screenings were specifically aimed at bringing joy to underprivileged individuals. To continue spreading happiness and heartwarming moments, the foundation will continue to organise similar screenings throughout the week across the country.
Members of Meer Foundation took to social media to say that the screening, for many, marked their first time inside a theatre. Almost 3,000 less-privileged people watched JAwanmbai
