Sanya Malhotra is known to be one of the most bankable stars and she has been amongst the busiest actors in the past few years. In less than a decade of her onscreen career, Sanya has worked with some of the most prolific names in the industry, including Aamir Khan, Nitesh Tiwari, Anurag Basu, and some more. Now, the actor is living another dream of working alongside Shah Rukh Khan. The Dangal star will be seen alongside SRK in his much-awaited Jawaan.
Directed by Atlee, Jawaan is an action drama that features SRK in a never seen before avatar. While the film was in the production stage, it was speculated that alongside Nayanthara, Deepika Padukone, and SRK, the film will also feature Sanya in a pivotal part.

However, Sanya, who calls herself professional, chose not to reveal any details.
Now, in a recent interaction with Koimoi, ahead of the release of her movie Kathal: A Jackfruit Mystery, Sanya shared that she can finally talk about her rumoured project with Shah Rukh Khan. The actor also reacted to fans calling her ‘joothi’ (liar) for denying her presence in the movie for so long.
Sanya elaborated how after she announced the new Jawaan release date fans were surprised, and some even called her a liar. She said, “To now being able to say all of this in an interview is a relief, and I am not lying to you or anyone else. Because I have upset many people because I also saw comments like ‘toh itne time se to aap jhoot bol rahi thi (so you were lying all this while)’. Nahi mein jhoot nahi bol rahi thi (I wasn’t lying).”
Sanya also added, “Meri pehli film Dangal thi and mere doston ko tak pata nahin tha jabtak woh news article bahar nhi aya (my first film was Dangal, I didn’t even tell my friends about it till the announcements were made in news). As a professional I will never go out and tell anyone. The news was already out, people were speculating but it was my duty to not reveal it to anyone, but now I am happy to reveal it to everyone that I am a part of Jawaan.” ALSO READ | Shah Rukh Khan Fulfills Dying 60-Year-Old Cancer Patient’s Last Wish, Video Calls Her, Actor Promises To Attend Her Daughter’s Wedding
Furthermore, when asked about her reaction to being in the same frame as Shah Rukh Khan and also playing a substantial role, she said, “I can’t believe that I am doing a film with him and the fact that now I can talk about it, talk about just being a part of it. I am excited and also at the same time grateful, and also it makes me so happy to see that people, when I posted that post on my Instagram handle, so many people were surprised and at the same time were so happy, and that’s only because it’s Shah Rukh Khan. It was my dream to work with him, and I am living that dream now. I think I am so grateful because I am a pet of Jawaan, I am so grateful to have worked with Atlee and SRK, and I am super excited.”
