More about Dunki

Dunki has been jointly bankrolled by Red Chillies Entertainment, Jio Studios and Rajkumar Hirani. The film has been written by Rajkumar Hirani, Abhijat Joshi and Kanika Dhillon. The comedy drama is based on illegal immigration, where people risk their lives to move abroad.

An excerpt from Hindustan Times’ Dunki movie review read, “SRK (Shah Rukh Khan) is the star attraction in Dunki and the film presents him in an avatar that we have seen earlier as well, in fact, multiple times over. As the young clean shaven hero falling for the first girl he met in Punjab where he had come looking for someone, he is endearing and sweet. But, he gets better in the second half, when that stubble grows and the gang is on their way to London through paths and routes that are as difficult as it gets. Be it crossing the desserts in Iran or snowy mountains of their next destination, Khan doesn’t fail to charm you. Of course after action packed Pathaan and Jawan earlier this year, Dunki is a total contrast and in that sense, it’s refreshing to see SRK doing what he is best at.”

Shah Rukh on Dunki

Last year, Shah Rukh Khan had spoken about the title of his film Dunki, and explained how it actually meant donkey. As he attended the Red Sea International Film Festival in Saudi Arabia in December 2022, Shah Rukh spoke about Dunki during an interview with Deadline.

The actor had said, “In English, my film would be called Donkey, it is Donkey. But the way a part of the country pronounces donkey in India, it is ‘dunki’. The Punjabis say it (donkey) like dunki… How much to tell you about the story… It is a film directed by one of the most brilliant filmmakers we have had in our country, Mr Raju Hirani. It is written by a very fantastic writer, Abhijat Joshi. It is a story of people, who want to come back home… when you finally get the calling.”
