The theatrical runtime for Jawan is two hours and 49 minutes. However, many said that the film should have been longer as there were many aspects to explore, especially the song Chaleya, which was about the developing love story between the lead actors, Shah Rukh Khan and Nayanthara. Now, during a recent success interview, the director, Atlee, confirmed that he is planning something different for the OTT version of Jawan.

Atlee's plans for OTT release

In an interview with Pinkvilla, when asked about his plans for the streaming release of the blockbuster film, the filmmaker stated, "I think we have given the theatre the right ratio of emotions at the right length. For OTT, we are considering a different rhythm. So, yeah, we are working on something. That's why I didn't go on my holiday. Let's see. Let me surprise you all."

Atlee's favourite character and spin-off possibilities

Meanwhile, when asked whether there was a character from his own work he'd like to see adapted into a spin-off, Atlee said that his hero is Vikram Rathore. Maybe he will make a sequel to that sometime. The filmmaker explained that he is a daddy's boy, and hence, he prefers to write strong father characters; it's in every one of his flicks.


At the end of Jawan, Azad and Vikram Rathore prepare for another operation, this time against the backdrop of the Swiss Bank, to combat corruption. When it comes to Jawan 2, Atlee spoke about it, stating that all of his films end on a cliffhanger, but he has never considered making a sequel to any of them. If he gets any good ideas for Jawan, he will build a sequel. The filmmaker left the door open, so he can write a sequel whenever he wants to. But someday he will write the sequel to Jawan.

Talking about the box office storm, Jawan has crossed the Rs. 735 crore mark at the global box office within 10 days of its release.
