Russell had earlier reacted to the Jawan trailer and praised the Kolkata Knight Riders team owner for his performance in the blockbuster movie. Taking to X (formerly Twitter), Russell’s IPL franchise KKR posted a video where the star was seen watching the trailer of Jawan and termed it as “another big hit” movie.
“Woww, So he’s playing more than one role in this movie. So, I think it’s gonna be another hit movie. Definitely like the action, the little funny sides of Shah Rukh. So you know, it’s just the trailer, just imagine watching the full movie. Hopefully it’s showing in Guyana and we can all go and watch it,” said Russell.
“It looks like a proper action movie. Always have some beautiful ladies in his movies and good actors. The action also looks very very impactful. All guns out, fighting and all these things. Go well, All the Best SRK. As soon I get a chance, I will be in the theaters,” he added.
