Sanya Malhotra Unaware Her Role in 'Jawan' Was Inspired by Gorakhpur Incident

In a recent revelation, actress Sanya Malhotra, celebrated for her role in the film ‘Jawan,’ shared her astonishment at discovering that her character was loosely inspired by a real-life incident, seemingly drawing parallels to the Gorakhpur Hospital tragedy. Sanya, who portrays the character of Dr. Eeram in this Shah Rukh Khan-starrer, spoke candidly about her experience during an interview with Bollywood Hungama.

When asked about the challenges of portraying a character based on a real person, Sanya admitted that she had no knowledge of this fact until the previous day. Her role has led many to draw associations with Dr. Kafeel Khan, a prominent figure related to the Gorakhpur Hospital incident. Sanya responded, “I got to know about this yesterday. Shooting ke dauran mujhe nahi pata tha (I was not aware of this while shooting).”

Sanya went on to elaborate on her role and working with director Atlee, known for his unique cinematic vision. She described Atlee’s universe as distinct and praised his clear vision for his films. She remarked on the challenging nature of her character, which pushed her beyond her comfort zone. Sanya also highlighted the impact of a particular scene and the seamless blending of real and reel elements in Atlee’s direction.

Regarding the positive response to the film, Sanya expressed her joy at discovering Dr. Kafeel Khan’s tweet after the release. She commended the strong message conveyed through ‘Jawan,’ crediting Atlee’s exceptional direction for its effectiveness.

‘Jawan,’ a multi-lingual film starring Sanya Malhotra alongside Nayanthara, Vijay Sethupathi, Priyamani, Yogi Babu, and Ridhi Dogra, has garnered significant success at the box office. According to the latest report from Sacnilk.com, the film has collected ₹345.58 crore nett in India across all languages within just six days of its release.

Directed by Atlee and produced by Shah Rukh and Gauri Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment, ‘Jawan’ made its debut in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu. The film’s music is composed by Anirudh Ravichander, and it was released on September 7, captivating audiences with its engaging narrative.

Sanya Malhotra’s next project is the biopic ‘Sam Bahadur,’ directed by Meghna Gulzar, where she will star alongside Vicky Kaushal. Additionally, Sanya will feature in the Hindi remake of the award-winning Malayalam film ‘The Great Indian Kitchen,’ further solidifying her presence in the Indian film industry.
