Jawan trailer on Burj Khalifa
Taking to the stage, Shah Rukh said, “To all the parents here, bete ko haath lagane se pahle baap se baat kar (Before touching the son, talk to the father),” and went on to wish all his fans good health. He also said his line, “Main kaun hoon. Kaun nahi. Pata nahi. Maa ko kiya wada hoon. Ya adhoora ik iraada hoon. Main achha hoon. Bura hoon. Punya hoon yaa paap hoon. Ye khud se puchna. Kyunki main bhi aap hoon (who am I, who I am not. I don’t know. I am a promise made to a mother or I am an incomplete intention. Ask yourself if I am good or bad, virtue or evil because I am what you are).”
Days after several fans demanded Jawan trailer during Shah Rukh Khan’s recent Ask Me Anything session on X, it was finally unveiled by the actor on Thursday. Hours later, it was screened at the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
