After a lot of speculation, Bollywood superstar Shah Ruk Khan has finally announced his upcoming film with noted director Rajkumar Hirani. The announcement video had the actor’s signature humour as it began with him standing in front of Hirani’s previous film posters and admiring the roles played by Ranbir Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt and Aamir Khan in his films. He then asks the director whether he has any role for him, and is rejoiced to learn that he indeed has.
SRK then asks Hirani whether the film will have comedy, emotions and romance to which he replies affirmative but says that Shah Rukh’s iconic hand gesture will not be needed. He then asks him the name of the film and the filmmaker reveals it to be ‘Dunki.’ Shah Rukh, however, is taken aback as the name sounds similar to ‘Donkey’ and starts contemplating how ‘SRK in and as Dunki’ will sound. He then exits the frame saying that ‘God knows what he is making. Anyway, grab it Shah Rukh.’
Sharing the video on his social media handles, he wrote, “Dear @hirani.rajkumar sir, Aap toh Mere Santa Claus nikle. Aap shuru karo main time pe pahunch jaunga. actually main toh set par hi rehne lagunga!Feeling humbled and excited to finally work with you.Bringing to you all #Dunki in cinemas on 22nd December 2023
