Superstar Shah Rukh Khan on Thursday said he is "overwhelmed" by the outpouring of love for "Jawan" and promised fans that he would take time out to thank them for watching his latest film in cinema halls.

"Jawan" opened on Thursday across the world with several viewers flooding theatres in festive frenzy waking up to catch the first day-first show as early as 5 am in some Indian cities.


As per early critics reviews, the Atlee directorial is an impressive blend of high-octane stunts and a politically charged narrative with a strong emotional core.

"Wow have to take time out and thank each and every Fan Club and all of you who have gone so happily in the theatres and even outside. So overwhelmed will surely do the needful as soon as I get my breath back in a day or so. Uff!! Love u for loving #Jawan," Shah Rukh wrote on X, formerly called Twitter.

Released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu, "Jawan" is a pan-India thriller which outlines "the emotional journey of a man who is set to rectify the wrongs in the society". It also stars Vijay Sethupathi and Nayanthara.

Trade experts are betting big on the movie as they believe the movie will outshine Shah Rukh's last offering "Pathaan".

Produced by Gauri Khan and co-produced by Gaurav Verma, "Jawan" also features Sanya Malhotra, Priyamani, Girija Oak, Sanjeeta Bhattacharya, Lehar Khan, Aaliyah Qureshi, Ridhi Dogra, Sunil Grover and Mukesh Chhabra as well as Deepika Padukone in a special appearance.
