Nayanthara, fondly referred as Lady Superstar, played the role of a powerful and fierce police officer, who is also a single mother, in Jawan. She made her Bollywood debut with the film, which hit the big screens in September 2023. Jawan raked in over INR 1,148 crore (USD 140 million).

Shah Rukh and Nayanthara teamed up for the first time on screen and impressed fans as well as film critics with their chemistry. When the film released, it was reported that the actress was ‘upset’ because of her less screen time. However, she never reacted to the rumours.

Meanwhile, on the work front, after Jawan, the actress was seen in films like Iraivan and Annapoorani: The Goddess of Food. She has other Tamil projects like Mannangatti Since 1960 and Test in the pipeline.
