Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan has never made secret his admiration for Tamil star Vijay Sethupathi's acting prowess. In the latest tweet, he reiterated his respect for Sethupathi, by describing the opportunity to share the screen space with him as "an honour." 

"Sir an honour to work with you. Thanks for teaching me a bit of Tamil on the sets & the delicious food u got. Love u Nanba!," Shah Rukh Khan tweeted while expressing their appreciation for the cast and crew of Jawan. Nanba is Tamil for a friend. 

This is not the first time SRK has publically heaped high praises for Sethupathi, who has craved a niche for himself with his impeccable performances in movies like Super Deluxe and Vikram Vedha. Recently, Sethupathi became a household name in the North Indian states with his acclaimed performance in Prime Video's hit web series Farzi. Sethupathi played the role of a dynamic cop in the web series created by Raj and DK. Later, he was also seen in Mumbaikar, which was the Hindi remake of the Tamil hit Maanagaram. And many are convinced that his performance in Jawan will take his popularity with the Hindi audience to another level. 

Sethupathi is also a huge fan of SRK. Earlier in an interview , he revealed that he immediately agreed to Jawan because he wanted to share screen space with SRK. "Yes, I do, It is the antagonist's role. I've known Atlee for a long time. But, I've never worked with him until now. When he offered me Jawan I immediately said yes to working with Shah Rukh Khan. He's such a down-to-earth, humble and helpful actor. No attitude at all. Always friendly and helpful," he said.

Written and directed by Atlee, Jawan is due in cinemas on September 7.
