Shah Rukh Khan recently shared the teaser for his film Jawan. While many fans were delighted by his bandaged and beaten-up look in the teaser, some wondered if it was too similar to the popular 1990 film Darkman.
Shah Rukh Khan’s Jawan
Shah Rukh Khan’s newly announced film ‘Jawan’ has left his die-hard fans excited. SRK on Friday released the teaser of action-entertainer “Jawan”, his long-anticipated collaboration with Tamil filmmaker Atlee. The film marks SRK’s maiden project with Atlee, known for directing blockbuster films like “Raja Rani”, “Their”, “Mersal” and “Bigil”.
The 1-minute 30 seconds teaser featured Shah Rukh with his head rolled in bandages, in a secret hideout full of machine guns, explosive ammo, and some outdated tech to keep him in the touch with the outside world.
While many fans were intrigued by his bandaged and bruised look in the teaser, some wondered if it was too similar to the popular 1990 Hollywood antihero film Darkman.
In the 1990 film Darkman, Liam Neeson playing an antihero role was left to die after being burned alive. He wrapped himself up in bandages to hide his burnt skin and returned to take revenge on those who tried to kill him. The bandaged look and the intense theme of the movie Jawan teaser led many fans to pull the comparisons even though nothing has been revealed about the plot for now.
SRK's look from Jawan is like Sam Raimi's Darkman and The Hush from DC comics 😳
