Rajkumar Hirani on Dunki: Shah Rukh Khan’s work ethic is admired by director Rajkumar Hirani. The actor is collaborating with director Hirani on the next movie Dunki, set for release in December. Recently, he said that in addition to the actor having his screenplay memorised in his mind, everyone on his crew enjoys being around him, which makes Hirani wish he had worked with him sooner. After a four-year hiatus, the filmmaker is making films again. The biopic of Sanjay Dutt, which was his most recent film, grossed more than Rs 300 crore worldwide.
A significant turning point in Bollywood was the collaboration between Shah Rukh Khan and Rajkumar Hirani on the film Dunki. Together, these two luminaries of Indian cinema will create a moving movie that tackles the problem of undocumented immigration. The movie, which is currently in the editing process, is scheduled to open in theatres in 2023 over the Christmas holiday.

Rajkumar Hirani, the director of the actor’s upcoming movie Dunki, responded with a humorous response to King Khan’s tweet that said, “Away shooting. Call time is reportedly a little later. So if you’re all free like me, I’d love to conduct a fun #AskSRK with you! Let’s begin by asking for anything—oops, I mean anything! I mean.” In response to this tweet, Rajkumari Hirani intimated that the Dunki trailer is finished and commented, “Sirji ab bathroom se bahar aa jao. How are you doing? dikhana trailer hain. #AskSRK.”

About The Movie Dunki
Dunki is anticipated to be a global phenomenon, and all the stakeholders are eager to portray it as a global offering from Indian Cinema, according to a source familiar with the development. While Jawan’s marketing concentrated on the Southern market, Red Chillies will be reaching a worldwide audience with Dunki. The picture will be released on December 21 in worldwide markets, taking advantage of the longer holiday season, thanks to extensive preparations.
On December 21, Dunki will have a significant international rollout, the source added. Dunki team will deliver a complete day of content on December 21 rather than just late-night premieres of new series. The goal is to increase word-of-mouth and arouse interest in the audience for the typical weekend, which runs from Friday to Sunday. Due to foreign holidays and the fact that SRK is the most well-known Indian name there, Dunki is expected to perform astronomically well during the final four days of the weekend before the Christmas break, the source predicted.
Shah Rukh Khan and Taapsee Pannu play the key characters in Dunki. It is made by Red Chillies Entertainment in collaboration with Rajkumar Hirani Films and Jio Studios.
