Jawan stars Kamal Haasan as Vikram Rathore.

Jawan stars Kamal Haasan as Vikram Rathore, who saves Shah Rukh Khan’s Azad by delivering the iconic dialogue. “Bete Ko Haath Lagane Se Pehle…” – A classic “Shut Up and Take My Phone” situation!

You’d be lying if you said this Jawan remake starring Shah Rukh Khan and Kamal Haasan wouldn’t draw a swarm of seetis and taalis to the theaters!

” I’d start with a Shah Rukh Khan dialogue, with a minor change because this is an article about him: “Apni kursi ki leti baandh lo, mausam ubharne wala hai!” Why? Because we’re about to delve into a fan wish casting that will undoubtedly spark many debates, and the majority of them will disagree with my hot take—Kamal Haasan as Vikram Rathore in Jawan.

You’d have to agree with me that Kamal Haasan did a fantastic job as Agent Vikram in Vikram to agree with this crazy fan-wish casting. If you agree, we can continue on this journey; if you’re not a fan of Lokesh Kanagraj’s brilliance, as Amitabh Bachchan would say, “aapka aur hamara saath bass yahin tak tha.”

Jawan is all about Shah Rukh Khan’s various roles and looks in the film, and Vikram Rathore is undoubtedly the most important thing to come out of it. Imagine Shah’a Azad getting badly beaten up by Vijay Sethupathi’s Kalee’s goons and walking into Vikram Rathore with all his undying swag, the camera pans to his face, and it lights up.

You’d be kidding yourself if you said this wouldn’t cause a stampede of seetis and taalis in the theaters. Fans would erupt in joy, likely recording the loudest cheer any hero could have received in this era. Even if you imagine this and think it’s a good idea, do you think a two-hero film starring these two could be released?

Though the film would have only taken advantage of the situation, attracting the fan bases of both mega-stars, will they agree to the characters they are given? As previously stated, Vikram Rathore was the soul of Jawan, and I doubt that someone as astute as Shah Rukh Khan would allow any other star the opportunity.

With Kamal Haasan on board, Atlee would have to rewrite the script, which centered equally on Azad and Vikram Rathore. This also entails ensuring that both actors have their highs to elevate the sequences, as math is frequently imbalanced.

Karan Johar once said at the 18th MAMI Mumbai International Film Festival 2016, “You can’t make it because two heroes will not work together.” Lakhan’s role will be considered larger, and Ram’s character will be insecure of Lakhan.” Akshay Kumar, for example, stated on Koffee With Karan 7, “There are a lot of actors who won’t do a 2-hero or 3-hero project.”

Shah Rukh Khan and Kamal Haasan collaborated in Hey Ram, but if this had happened, Jawan would have reached a higher level than the one it had already attained.
