Shah Rukh Khan, Nayanthara visit Tirupati temple ahead of 'Jawan' release

Accompanied by Suhana Khan, Vignesh Shivan and others

113-Shah-Rukh-Khan Badshah’s banter: Shah Rukh Khan held an ‘Ask SRK’ session on Twitter for precisely 31 minutes to celebrate 31 years in the industry; his first film Deewana was released in 1992. He was his usual debonair self, answering questions with poise and grace, although being a tad too diplomatic for our taste. Fans took the opportunity to ask him everything from how they should prepare to watch his next film, Jawan, to how he tackles negativity. One of them asked what he felt when he watched his epic entry in Deewana, in which he is seen riding a bike. “Should have worn a helmet,” quipped SRK. Better safe than sexy? | AFP

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan on Tuesday offered prayers at the Sri Venkateswara Swamy temple in the hill town of Tirumala in Tirupati district of Andhra Pradesh, days before the release of his much-anticipated film Jawan.

The 58-year-old superstar was accompanied by his daughter Suhana Khan, Jawan co-star Nayanthara, her filmmaker husband Vignesh Shivan and other members of his team.

In a video, Shah Rukh can be seen inside the temple premises with his security and others managing the crowd as he exits.

The actor wore white kurta pyjama with traditional upper cloth for his early morning visit to the temple. He first paid obeisance to the flag pole and then offered prayers to Lord Venkateswara.

Jawan, a high-octane action thriller, is directed by Tamil filmmaker Atlee. It is set to arrive in theatres on September 7.

The film also stars, Vijay Sethupathi, Priyamani and Sanya Malhotra. Deepika Padukone is making a special appearance. The film will be released in theatres on Thursday in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu languages.
