Deepika also shared her motivations for making a cameo appearance in Jawan.
Following the resounding success of Jawan at the box office, the film’s creators organized a press meet at the YRF office in Mumbai on Friday, where the star-studded cast, including Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone, graced the event with their presence.
Shah Rukh Khan made a striking appearance in a black blazer paired with a white shirt and had his long hair elegantly braided. On the other hand, Deepika Padukone exuded timeless charm in a black and white chiffon saree paired with a white halter-necked blouse.
Addressing the media, Deepika shared her motivations for making a cameo appearance in Jawan, stating, “I was shooting for Project K in Hyderabad when they approached me to narrate the role. I don’t know why they were trying to convince me; any actor would have done it. I had decided in one minute that I was going to do it.”
In a playful jest about Deepika’s cameo, Shah Rukh Khan humorously remarked, “We fooled Deepika and shot a full-length film with her. She didn’t even know she’s one of the main characters.”
Deepika elaborated, “I have nothing to say except I did this out of my love for Shah Rukh. I didn’t expect it to be so huge, but I am here to support the team.”
Deepika also spoke about her special bond with SRK, referring to him as her lucky charm, saying, “I feel like ‘lucky charm’ is a very throwaway term. We just have immense love and respect for each other and trust. If I am on one corner of a set and he’s on the other, and if anything happens, he’s going to be the first one there to help.”
Directed by Atlee, Jawan features an ensemble cast that includes Shah Rukh Khan, Vijay Sethupathi, Nayanthara, Sanya Malhotra, Priyamani, Sunil Grover, and more. The film, which also boasts a cameo by Deepika Padukone, has broken numerous records and is the highest Bollywood opener of all time.
