How enthusiastic the fans are about the film can only be seen from advance ticket bookings. The trailer release has increased the curiosity of fans even further. The pairing of Shah Rukh and Nayanthara is very prominent in the songs and trailers of the film. However, now there is big news regarding the casting of the leading actress. If reports are to be believed, Nayanthara was not the producers’ first choice for the film.
About the lead actress of Javaan, rumors are rife that the first choice for the role was Samantha Ruth Prabhu, who starred opposite Nayanthara in Kaathuvakula Rendu Kadhal.

Rumor has it that Samantha was offered this Shah Rukh Khan starrer film in 2019.
Jawaan stars Shahrukh Khan, Nayanthara and Vijay Sethupathi in the lead roles. Additionally, Deepika Padukone plays a special role in the film. It will also star Priyamani, Sunil Grover, Yogi Babu, Riddhi Dogra, Aastha Aggarwal, Sanya Malhotra, Ejaz Khan, Sanjeeta Bhattacharya, Amrita Iyer, Kenny Basumatary, Girija Oak and Lahar Khan.
