Bollywood badshah actor Shah Rukh Khan directed by Atlee had Samantha Ruth Prabhu as his first choice for the role of female superstar Nayanthara. A few days ago, Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan officially announced his movie Jawan. Now reports are coming in that Samantha was the first choice for this film, but she rejected Shah Rukh Khan’s starring role and the role fell into Nayanthara’s lap.
Samantha Ruth Prabhu was approached with the script in 2019 which she turned down due to personal commitments. She planned to follow the family path with her husband, then-actor Naga Chaitanya. She gave a huge shock when they announced the divorce. Samantha after partying with Chay removed Akkineni from her public profiles.
Well, that’s just speculation, as neither Jawan’s team nor the Majili actress herself has confirmed or denied the news.
Apart from the lead actors, the upcoming big budget movie Jawan also stars Sanya Malhotra and Sunil Grover in the prominent roles. A few days ago, Shah Rukh Khan and Sanya Malhotra were spotted shooting some clips of the film in a hospital in Mumbai.
Shah Rukh Khan star Jawan will be released on PAN India in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada.
