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.

After having kept the nation in great anticipation for the release, Shah Rukh Khan’s most anticipated Jawan has finally arrived on the big screens today. Turning the theatres into stadiums, the Jawan madness was well witnessed outside theatres. From fans turning up for early morning shows to SRK fan clubs organizing big screenings for the fans across the nation, it has been a celebration. Shah Rukh Khan is grateful to everyone who turned up for the movie this morning and afternoon.

Taking to his X account, formerly called Twitter, Shah Rukh Khan wrote, “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
