Rajkumar Hirani and Shah Rukh Khan, two of India’s most powerful filmmaking forces, will collaborate for the first time in Dunki. On Tuesday, Rajkumar Hirani and Shah Rukh Khan released a charming video unit in which they discuss the possibility of working together on a film.

Shah Rukh Khan and Rajkumar Hirani’s long-awaited collaboration begins after the success of films like 3 Idiots, the Munnabhai franchise, PK, and Sanju in the industry. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for both the filmmaker and the actor.

Many Indian asylum seekers use “donkey flight,” an illegal backdoor route, to travel to the United States and Canada. This is the basis for Dunki, according to reports.
Donkey flying, according to Peeping Moon, is a term used to describe the illegal method of entering a foreign country that involves numerous stops in other countries. After they are unable to travel to their intended destination through legal channels, many young people resort to this method.

 With a story that is both heartfelt and humorous, Hirani’s film tackles this broad topic in his characteristically stylish manner. His journey to Canada was a difficult one for a Punjabi man.

Shah Rukh Khan appears in top form and ready to make a comeback like never before. The actor is preparing for a big comeback after a five-year hiatus following the failure of Zero in 2018. Pathaan, Jawan, Tiger 3 (cameo), and Dunki round out his stellar cast. Every SRK fan should be aware of new developments in the film’s production.
SRK officially announced his third comeback film with Jawan just a few days ago, revealing his entire slate of upcoming projects. 

Whether it’s Pathaan, Dunki, or Jawan, all of these films will be released in 2023, and production is currently underway. The superstar is said to be juggling multiple shoots.
According to reports, Shah Rukh Khan and Rajkumar Hirani wrapped up the first schedule of their first collaboration, Dunki, recently. One fun dance number choreographed by none other than Ganesh Acharya has already been shot, according to reports. Resuming work on Atlee’s Jawan is Khan’s next step.

As per source way2ott, It’s been a year since we started working on Jawan, and we’re already halfway done. For Tiger 3, Shah Rukh Khan’s much-anticipated cameo will be shot after Atlee’s film. According to reports, Salman and Shah Rukh will appear together in the scene. Khan will then fly to Dunki’s international schedule after completing these other obligations. The shoot is scheduled for July.

Shah Rukh Khan has returned to the silver screen after a long absence! Rajkumar Hirani’s next film, Dunki, will feature the superstar after Pathaan. In 2023, on December 22nd, a film starring two of Indian cinema’s biggest names will be released in theatres across the country. Dunki also stars Taapsee Pannu in the lead role. SRK announced the news on Twitter “Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrr! When you’re ready, I’ll be there. Hi rehne lagunga is actually the main set-up. I’m honoured and thrilled to have the opportunity to work with you. On December 22nd, 2023, you can see #Dunki in theatres near you.”

An amusing video was used to announce the mega project, showing SRK staring at a wall of Rajkumar Hirani movie posters. The director soon joins him and reveals that he and SRK are working on a film together. “Donkey or Dunki?” Khan inquires, perplexed. Later, the two are spotted discussing the film’s other aspects.


The film began filming in April 2022, and the upcoming schedule will feature a large amount of shooting in Punjab. Rajkumar Hirani, the director who confirmed the news, said “When I started my career, I always wanted to work with Shah Rukh Khan and after a few unsuccessful attempts in the past, we were finally able to make it happen with “Dunki.” I can’t wait to bring that magic to the big screen thanks to his charisma, charisma, wit, and charm..” Shah Rukh Khan switches up his hairstyle for Pathaan. The new project has yet to begin filming.

Khan, who is ecstatic about working on the film, said so in an interview “One of the greatest filmmakers of this generation, Raj Kumar Hirani and I have talked about working together for a long time, and I am delighted that we finally have the opportunity to do so with “Dunki.” As we have only just begun shooting this month, I am savouring each and every second. There are some things I can do with Donkey, Monkey, and the like for Raju!”
Tapsee Pannu, a Bollywood actor, had this to say: “I can’t wait to get started on this adventure and be a part of such an unforgettable film. Rajkumar Hirani and Shah Rukh Khan are two people I greatly admire and respect. This is my first opportunity to work with them.”


In Rajkumar Hirani’s upcoming social-drama Dunki, Taapsee Pannu will star alongside Shah Rukh Khan as the lead character. Three days before Christmas in 2023, the film will be released on December 22nd. This week, Badla actress and Pathaan actor shared their excitement in an interview about working on the film and starring together in Pathaan 2.
When asked about this project, the actress told Hindustan Times that it is most likely her largest to date and even admitted that she doesn’t know if anything else could be more significant for her career. 


Even after reporting from the set and the first day of shooting, she still couldn’t believe she was a part of Dunki.

To the media portal that Taapsee spoke to, she explained that she was most excited to spend time with Shah Rukh Khan “off-screen,” where she could just sit and chat with him, because she admires his personality beyond his films—his wit and humour, his experience, and his honesty in narrating his experiences. “I love his personality beyond his films,” she said. As someone who has followed his work for many years, I was curious to hear about the trials and tribulations he has faced.
