Taapsee Pannu and Shah Rukh Khan are getting ready for the premiere of Rajkumar Hirani’s comedy-drama Dunki. The film, which addresses illegal immigration, has received a lot of attention. In a new video, the director and cast talked about the characters, explored the significance of the movie’s title, and offered some fascinating anecdotes.
Shah Rukh Khan shares the idea behind Dunki
The makers of Dunki have released a video today, December 18, in which Shah Rukh Khan, Rajkumar Hirani, and Taapsee Pannu talk about the behind-the-scenes elements of the movie. In the movie, Rajkumar Hirani described how he got ideas from seeing unusual homes in Punjab. These thoughts then developed into an investigation of donkey flights, which led to the creation of Dunki.
Shah Rukh Khan responded, “Ek bohut khoobsurat line hai humare film me ki Dunki ka matlab hota hai apno se dur rehna (There’s one beautiful line in our film which is that Dunki means being apart from your loved ones) and I think that is the essence of the film.”

SRK said, “Ye humari film ka motive hai. Actually, mujhe bohut khoobsurat lagti hai ye photo mainly because, hum baar baar bolte bhi rehte hai apni messaging me apne film ke ki ye journey hai, ye homecoming ki film hai, ye emotions ki film hai but I think iss film ka crux jo hai, if I may say so, is friendship.(This is the motive of our film. Actually, I find this photo very beautiful mainly because we repeatedly say in our messaging about our film that it’s a journey, it’s a homecoming film, it’s an emotional film. But I think the crux of this film, if I may say so, is friendship.)”
He continued, “Mai jab bhi Raju sir ki filmein dekhta hu, I’m sure you’ll agree with me I think sabke liye bohut important roles hote hai film ke andar and mera ye maanna hai ki film tabhi achi hoti hai jab bohut saare characters ho film mein. Kya ek do log ho aur chalte ja rahe ho toh thodi der mein mere jaise handsome aadmi ko bhi dekhke log bore ho jaate hai. (Whenever I watch Raju sir’s films, and I’m sure you’ll agree with me, I think all the characters in the film play very important roles. In my opinion, a film is truly good when there are a lot of characters in it. If there are only one or two people and they keep going, people get bored after a while of seeing a handsome man like me).”
He ended by stating that Vikram and Anil, two new characters in the movie, are introduced, and he felt compelled to share a scene they did since, in his opinion, it is the funniest sequence in the whole thing.
