It was recently reported that after completing the international schedule of Pathaan and wrapping up Atlee’s next, Shah Rukh Khan has began shooting for Rajkumar Hirani’s upcoming project. Well, the film has officially been announced today and the title is Dunki.
After sporting a beard and a ponytail for two long years, Bollywood’s king Shah Rukh Khan left fans gushing over his new hairdo and clean shaven look at Baba Siddique's Iftaar party. Reports suggested that this new avatar is for his next film, which is being helmed by ace filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani and also stars Taapsee Pannu . This has been one of the most talked about projects in the last few months and according to sources, the superstar began shooting earlier this week. Well, much to our delight, SRK and Hirani have now officially announced their film which is titled Dunki.
Watching the actor shine on-screen is always a delight. Well, the official announcement clip of Dunki is nothing short of a treat for his fans! In the video, Shah Rukh is standing in front of a wall looking at posters of Hirani’s hit films such as Sanju, PK and Munna Bhai MBBS. When the director asks him what he’s looking at, the superstar nervously replies, “Sir, mere liye bhi kuchh aisa hai kya?” When the filmmaker shares that he does have a script, SRK’s face lights up! The name is revealed to be Dunki, and initially the superstar confuses the title with ‘Donkey’.
However, in the end Shah Rukh tells himself, “Pata nahi kya bana rahe hain. Jo bhi hai, lelo lelo.” Below the video, the actor expressed his gratitude in the caption, which read: “Dear @hirani.rajkumar sir, Aap toh Mere Santa Claus nikle.
