Mukesh Chhabra, the casting director of “Jawan,” disclosed in an interview that it took more than a year to complete the casting for the film. He explained, “We spent over a year on it. We had to discover new talent and align everyone’s schedules. We had to commit them for more than 100 days, so the coordination was also time-consuming.
Major films like this require time. As I mentioned before, consider the examples of ‘Dangal’ and ‘Dunki,’ or ‘PK’ and ‘Sanju.’ Your work can’t be rushed within three months.”
