Shah Rukh Khan recently flew to Dubai to promote his upcoming film Dunki. At the promotional event in Dubai, the actor explained the meaning of his film Dunki, the sentiment behind it and more.
Dunki is an illegal trip many people take to get out of their country across borders all over the world. It deals about going out from your home country and finding a future for yourself, but loving your home the most. So, it’s about homecoming or ghar wapsi. It’s like wherever in the world you might live, but ultimately during the last days of your life, its best to come back home to your country.
Speaking about his previous films, Jawan and Pathaan, SRK said, “So when I made Jawan, I thought I made a film for boys and girls but I didn’t make anything for myself, then I made Dunki. So this is my film. This film is very close to my heart. When I was doing Pathaan, many people who write about films, those who apparently know about films more than the filmmakers, were saying what kind of roles I was doing, so I really felt that I should do films that come from my heart and this includes all the films that I did this year. I started the year with Pathaan, which was always ladies first, and I want to end the year with a film for myself. So, please watch Dunki on December 21. Everyone will find something in the film that will touch their heart. The film will make you laugh also.”
Dunki features an ensemble cast, with colorful characters portrayed by exceptionally talented actors Boman Irani, Taapsee Pannu, Vicky Kaushal, Vikram Kochhar, and Anil Grover, along with Shah Rukh Khan. A JIO Studios, Red Chillies Entertainment, and Rajkumar Hirani Films presentation, produced by Rajkumar Hirani and Gauri Khan Written by Abhijat Joshi, Rajkumar Hirani, and Kanika Dhillon, Dunki is slated to release on December 2023.
