Jawan Actress Priyamani Says Director Atlee ‘Cheated’ Her; Check How

Jawan crossed the Rs 300-crore mark in the fastest time for a Hindi film.

Actress Priyamani played Lakshmi, a trusted member of Shah Rukh Khan’s deadly girl squad in Jawan.

If there is one movie every cinephile is gushing about nowadays, it is the Shah Rukh Khan starrer Jawan. The Atlee-directed film has been setting the box office on fire since its release. Jawan set a new record in the Hindi film industry by crossing the Rs 300 crore mark in the fastest time, a record previously held by another Shah Rukh Khan starrer Pathaan. One of the distinguishing facts about Jawan is that every cast member is receiving praise for their portrayal of their characters and it is not just the King Khan walking away with the thunder. One of them is South actress Priyamani who has appeared in films of all the South Indian languages.

Priyamani played Lakshmi, a trusted member of Shah Rukh Khan’s deadly girl squad in Jawan and nailed the role with absolute perfection. Priyamani, does, however, have a grudge against director Atlee. Her grudge stems from a viral rumour that most of the country was subjected to in the weeks leading up to Jawan’s release.

Prior to the release, it had widely been reported that Tamil star Thalapthy Vijay, who is a frequent collaborator of Atlee, would have a cameo in Jawan as well. It, however, turned out to be false after the film was released. Priyamani said in a recent interview that Atlee had actually told her that Vijay was on board the film along with Shah Rukh. An excited Priyamani had even requested a few scenes with Vijay, to which Atlee had agreed.

Priyamani expressed her disappointment when, during the shoot, Vijay was not a part of Jawan. She joked that Atlee had cheated her in this fashion. The actress made this complaint in all good faith though.

Priyamani had previously also opened up about how Shah Rukh Khan insisted on having her next to him in the dance sequence of the song Zinda Banda after choreographer Shobi Master placed her behind him. According to her, Shah Rukh had said that he had learnt dance from her during Chennai Express and thus wanted her beside himself, not behind.
