At the start of 2023, director Siddharth Anand released the most-awaited film in early 2023, Pathaan. The film, written by Shridhar Raghavan and Abbas Tyrewala, featured Bollywood King Shah Rukh Khan in the titular role, along with Deepika Padukone, John Abraham, Dimple Kapadia, and Ashutosh Rana. The film was welcomed with a lot of love, rave reviews, and plaudits from SRK fans across the globe, making it break multiple box office records. Its collections at the global box office also exceeded the expectations of audiences and fans. Eventually, the film became the highest-grossing Hindi language film ever made in India. After scripting history with Pathaan, his upcoming pan-Indian action-thriller film Jawan, directed by noted South filmmaker Atlee Kumar, is ready to make another new record.
Jawan is ready to make a record by getting a 6 a.m. show at the Iconic Gaiety Galaxy Theatre in Mumbai. According to Shah Rukh Khan Universe Fan Club, which claims to be the biggest fan club of SRK, they are ready to keep an early morning, 6 a.m. show at the most sought-after theatre in the entertainment capital of India.

The Shah Rukh Khan Universe Fan Club's tweet on X (formerly Twitter), read, "SRK UNIVERSE BREAKS RECORD! The SRK Fan Club has organised a 6:00 AM show. Which is the first time in the past 51 years!."

A leading entertainment portal had earlier reported that the SRK and Taapsee Pannu starrer film is helmed by Rajkumar Hirani. The trailer is reportedly to be released around Diwali this year.
After enjoying the success of Pathaan, global heartthrob and King of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan is all set for the release of his next film, which is co-written and directed by Atlee.
