Superstar Shahrukh Khan’s film ‘Jawaan’ was a blockbuster hit movie. The film broke many records in terms of earnings. It became the highest grossing film of the year 2023. South star actress Nayanthara played the female lead role in this Shahrukh Khan starrer film. But do you know that Nayanthara was not the makers’ first choice for the film.
Nayanthara was not the first choice
Nayanthara got her grand debut in Bollywood through ‘Jawaan’. According to a report in Mid Day, Atlee’s team had earlier selected Samantha Ruth Prabhu for the role of Narmada. However, the casting was later changed.
This is how Nayanthara got a big opportunity
According to the information, Samantha had refused to work in this Shahrukh Khan starrer film due to family reasons. The result was that the film went to Nayanthara and she got her grand debut in Bollywood.
This was the reason for choosing Samantha
Samantha Ruth Prabhu had already become popular across the country through Allu Arjun’s film ‘Pushpa The Rise’. Therefore, it would have been a profitable deal for Atlee to cast him. The reason was that Samantha had already become a big and famous face.
Jawan’s Total Worldwide Collection
However, Nayanthara got the final chance and along with Shahrukh Khan, she created such magic that the film became a blockbuster hit. This film had a total collection of Rs 1140 crore.
