Amid rumours of being upset with Atlee, Nayanthara wishes 'Jawan' director on his birthday

Amid rumours that Nayanthara is upset with Atlee, the superstar has sent a wish to the 'Jawan' director on his birthday.

Nayanthara shared a collage featuring herself and Atlee in BTS moments. Her short and sweet message read, "Happy Birthday Atlee. So proud of you."

This comes as  Nayanthara, who made her Bollywood debut with the super-successful 'Jawan' alongside Shah Rukh Khan, was reported to be upset with Atlee as her role was chopped in the film.

The actress plays a formidable special agent Narmada Rai in Shah Rukh Khan's blockbuster release Jawan.

Fans loved SRK-Nayanthara's on-screen chemistry.

A source told Hindustan Times, “She [Nayanthara] has been very upset with Atlee because her role was chopped in the film. Also, Deepika's [Padukone] character was elevated and Nayanthara's part was significantly sidelined.” 

Deepika has a “special appearance” in the film as Vikram Rathod's (SRK) wife. According to the HT source, “it was not a cameo” instead Jawan was made to look like a “SRK-Deepika” film.

“It was not a cameo at all. Jawan was almost made to look like an SRK-Deepika film. Nayanthara is the leading actor down south, and hence, she was not happy with the treatment of Jawan. And that can never well be the reason why we might not see her in a Bollywood project, at least not anytime soon,” the source added.

On being asked about Nayanthara missing promotional events and the successful press meet, the source clarified that the actress follows a “no promotion policy because of her bad experiences in the past.”

“Nayanthara follows a no promotion policy for her films because of her bad experiences in the past when she was misquoted and because she feels that her job is to act and not get involved in the promotional activities,” the source said.

Meanwhile, during one of his “Ask SRK” sessions on X, Shah Rukh Khan spoke about his experience of working with Nayanthara. He wrote, “She [Nayanthara] is so beautiful and such a wonderful actor. Has added immensely to her role. Hope her fans in Tamil Nadu fall in love with her all over again and the Hindi audience appreciates her hard work.”

Jawan was released in theatres on September 7 and has been smashing all box office records so far.
