Jawan, the blockbuster movie, has been winning hearts worldwide. As per the latest reports, Shah Rukh Khan's movie is on its way to mark Rs. 1,000 crore at the global box office. The cast, makers, and the director of the movie have been beaming with joy over the massive success of the film. For those who don't know, the movie featured Shah Rukh Khan, Nayanthara, Vijay Sethupathi, Deepika Padukone, and others. However, amid the Jawan craze that has been going on, a few reports have claimed that Nayanthara is upset with the director, Atlee Kumar as her role was sidelined in the film. And now it seems like the actress indirectly reacted to these reports.
Taking to her IG handle on September 21, 2023, Nayanthara dropped a collage picture with Atlee Kumar to wish him on his birthday. The photos featured the actress and the director from the Jawan set. Sharing the pictures, Nayanthara wished the dynamic director and said that she's proud of him. Nayanthara wrote:
"Happy birthday @atlee47. So proud of you."
Earlier, a report by the Hindustan Times mentioned Nayanthara is quite upset with the director for the way her role in the movie was chopped, whereas Deepika Padukone's role, who played a cameo in the movie, was elevated. The source could be quoted as saying:
“She has been very upset with Atlee because her role was chopped in the film. Also, Deepika’s (Padukone) character was elevated, and Nayantara’s part was significantly sidelined.”
For the unversed, Deepika in the film played the role of 'Aishwarya', and the actress aced her role in such a way that everyone was left teary-eyed. A few days ago, Deepika revealed that she didn't even charge a penny for her role in the movie. Talking about the same, the source also mentioned that it didn't even feel like Deepika had a cameo role in Jawan. Instead, it looked like a Deepika-SRK movie. The source shared that Nayanthara isn't happy with her treatment in Jawan, and she might not sign any Bollywood movies anytime soon. The source mentioned:
“It was not a cameo at all. Jawan was almost made to look like an SRK-Deepika film. Nayanthara is the leading actor down south, and hence, she was not happy with the treatment of Jawan. And that can never well be the reason why we might not see her in a Bollywood project, at least not anytime soon.”
For those who don't know, Nayanthara couldn't be seen in any of the promotional events of the then-upcoming film, Jawan. However, it's worth mentioning that Naynthara reportedly doesn't take any part in the promotions of her films and follows a no-promotion policy as in the past she was misquoted for the same, and this is why the actress has refrained from any promotional activity. Talking about the success party of the movie, Jawan, SRK has revealed that the actress couldn't join them due to her mother's birthday.
As per several reports, Nayanthara charged a whopping sum between Rs. 11 crores to Rs. 30 crores for working in Atlee’s Jawan. It's worth mentioning no such confirmation about the same has yet been made officially.
Do you think Nayanthara slightly dismissed the reports of her being upset with Atlee? Let us know!
