Amidst the nationwide frenzy surrounding Shahrukh Khan’s blockbuster film ‘Jawan,’ the movie’s name has now echoed within the hallowed halls of India’s Parliament House. Jairam Ramesh, a prominent Congress leader, has thrown down the gauntlet to the Central Government, urging them to organize a screening of ‘Jawan’ within the confines of the new Parliament House.
‘Young Man in New Parliament’
While Shahrukh Khan’s ‘Jawan’ continues to dominate discussions across India and beyond, its resonance has now transcended the silver screen and entered the heart of Indian politics – Parliament. This unexpected turn of events stems from none other than Jairam Ramesh, the leader of the opposition party in Parliament. Over the weekend, Ramesh boldly issued a challenge to the Central Government, insisting that they follow the precedent set by ‘Gadar 2’ and arrange a screening of ‘Jawan.’ It’s worth noting that ‘Gadar 2,’ directed by Anil Sharma and featuring Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel, was recently screened in the new Parliament House, marking the first-ever instance of a film being showcased within its walls.
Film’s Dialogues Stoke Controversy
In a cleverly worded taunt, Ramesh prodded the government, questioning whether they would indeed exhibit ‘Jawan’ for all to see. Of particular interest is a dialogue delivered by King Khan in the film, where he urges citizens to question those seeking their votes and inquire about their plans for the next five years. This dialogue has stirred considerable debate and garnered significant attention.
Rapid Box Office Success
The excitement surrounding ‘Jawan,’ directed by Atlee, has reached a fever pitch among the masses. The film astonishingly crossed the coveted 100 crore mark within just two days of its release. With a star-studded ensemble cast featuring Shahrukh Khan, Nayanthara, Vijay Sethupathi, and Sunil Grover, ‘Jawan’ has taken the box office by storm and is the talk of the town.
