Kollywood celebs shower praise on Atlee after the title announcement of Shah Rukh Khan's Jawan

Atlee and Shah Rukh Khan

After several rumours and speculation that did the rounds with regard to the title of Shah Rukh Khan-Atlee's project, it has now been announced that its official title is Jawan. The movie marks the young filmmaker's debut in Bollywood. He took to his Twitter page to share the film's title announcement video, along with a short emotional note.

He tweeted, "Feeling emotional, excited & blessed. Grew up admiring you but never imagined that I would be directing you sir. @iamsrk & I proudly present to you #Jawan (sic)." The news of SRK and Atlee joining hands surfaced on the internet before the release of his last outing Bigil (streaming on Amazon Prime Video) which was released in 2019.

Fans of SRK, Atlee and even Vijay have been waiting for an official title announcement of the project for a long time. Billed as a revenge thriller, Jawan will release in multiple languages in theatres on June 2, 2023.

The movie marks the Bollywood debut of its female lead Nayanthara, too. Ever since the movie's official announcement is out, Atlee has been receiving praises from celebrities of Tamil movie industry.

Actor Prasanna was one of the first from Kollywood to react to the announcement. He tweeted "congrats bro" from his Twitter page while music director Dhibu Ninan Thomas posted a heart emoji. Director Mohan Raja's tweet read, "Superb. Best wishes brother @Atlee_dir Rock it (sic)."

In his tweet, Sivakarthikeyan said that he is happy to see Atlee directing King Khan, while Varalaxmi posted, "Wooohoooo can't wait (sic)." Producer Archana Kalpathi, who bankrolled Atlee's Bigil, comedian Sathish, director Cibi Chakaravarthi and singer-composer Santhosh Dhayanidhi are a few others who took to their Twitter pages to congratulate the filmmaker for presenting SRK in a stylish, but menacing avatar.
