Actor Shah Rukh Khan is celebrating his 58th birthday with his fans. As a treat, he even held a fan event in Mumbai where watched Dunki teaser with them. During the fan interaction, Rajkummar Hirani and Shah Rukh Khan both shared lovely anecdotes about Dunki that took everyone by surprise. One such incident was when Rajkummar Hirani revealed why he was keen to work with SRK after he watched him in Circus.
Rajkumar Hirani narrated how after watching Shah Rukh Khan in Circus, he decided to work with him. He shared, “Before I tell you how was it working with him, I will tell you a small story. I used to study at a film institute. I used to wonder, ‘I am graduating from here, but who would work with me?’ I used to look at big stars like Bachchan sahab and think, ‘Why would a star like him work with me?’ So, one day, in my hostel’s TV room, I was watching Circus. In a particular scene, a young actor was performing on a platform. It was a big monologue. I thought, ‘Who is this guy? This is so wonderful. He is not a big actor too. I can take him in my film after I graduate.’“
In the same event, Shah Rukh revealed, “We have been making Dunki for the past 2-2.5 years and today its first look, the Dunki Drop, was shared, we are so cool that we also now call it ‘drop’. So, Dunki drop bana chuka hai and we will keep sharing glimpses of the film.“
Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, Dunki also stars Taapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal. The official release date of Dunki is December 22.
