Shah Rukh Khan and Nayanthara are coming together for Atlee's film Jawan. It was officially announced earlier this month and set to be released in cinema halls on June 2. The expectations from the movie are sky high as it will present SRK in a never-seen-before avatar. With Atlee taking the director's chair, Jawan is anticipated to be a full-on masala entertainer. After the film's announcement, speculations around its OTT rights have risen. 

Jawan's OTT rights acquired already?

Jawan has reportedly been shooting since last year. SRK and the team have been very careful about anything from the movie not leaking on the internet. Apart from a few images of SRK in the midst of the crew, there is not much information about the film available in the public domain. However, now a report has surfaced that Jawan's OTT rights have been sold at a very steep price. As per a Bollywood Life report, Netflix has acquired the post-theatrical release streaming rights of the movie for Rs 120 crore.
