After two back-to-back hits, Shah Rukh Khan is all set to woo the audience with his upcoming film, 'Dunki'. Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, the film will hit theatres on 21st December.

Drawn from real-life experiences, 'Dunki' is a saga of love and friendship that brings together these wildly disparate stories, providing hilarious and heart-breaking answers.

A fan asked Shah Rukh, “How much did you know about this #Dunki thing before doing this film and what fascinated you most about this project #AskSRK”


To which SRK said, “Actually hardly anything. Raju and Abhijaat brought it to my knowledge. It’s fascinating….dangerous and quite an overwhelming experience to have learnt about it and portray parts of it. #Dunki.”


Another fan shared his thoughts and said, “#AskSrk sorry sir but I am more excited for dunki. Not because of you but because of Rajkumar hirani.” 

To which the superstar replied, “And that’s the right reason. I am also excited to be in a Raju film. Films are a directors medium….hero toh aate jaate rehte hain! #Dunki”

Dunki features an ensemble cast, with colourful characters portrayed by exceptionally talented actors, Boman Irani, Taapsee Pannu, Vicky Kaushal, Vikram Kochhar, Anil Grover, starring along with Shah Rukh Khan.
