The Baadshah of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan got into an #AskSRK session, after he announced the release date of his upcoming Jawan yesterday. During the Twitter chat, a fan has asked Shah Rukh Khan about the speciality of the film's director Atlee. Shah Rukh Khan had then stated that he was very smart, dedicated and that his entire team was mass. He also praised his wife Priya, who fed him on the Jawan set and also called Atlee's son, Meer, lovely. Interestingly, no one knew Atlee's son's name until then.

Priya Atlee dropped a picture with Atlee and her son, and wrote, "Yes the name is MEER Very happy to be revealing our little angels name #meer #babyboy @Atlee_dir (sic). Though it is not clear whether Shah Rukh Khan accidentally revealed their baby's name or if the couple wanted him to announce the same. Nevertheless, fans of the director are indeed happy to hear the name of the baby. Atlee, too, wrote, "Yes the name is Meer Need all ur love ,blessing and prayers (sic)."
Atlee responded to Shah Rukh Khan's statement and wrote ' Love you sir (sic)." SRK had also stated that he had fun on the sets of the film. He also stated that he liked Atlee's films, Theri and Mersal. Talking about Jawan being a different kind of film, SRK wrote, "For me at least it’s a new kind of a genre. An Atlee special and the marriage of trying to bring two ways of making films in tandem #Jawan (sic)."
Shah Rukh Khan also stated that he has lip synced to the lines of a Tamil song. Talking to a fan, SRK wrote, "Atlee and Anirudh made me do a few song lines (lip synch ) in Tamil….hope I got them right (sic)." Jawan is all set to hit screens on September 7.
