Bollywood star Taapsee Pannu says that for an avid fan like her, working on Dunki under Shah Rukh Khan is a personal achievement. Cinematographer Rajkumar Hirani directs the film from a screenplay he co-wrote with Abhijaat Joshi and Kanika Dhillon.

According to media reports, Dunki will stress the unbridled use of an illegal backdoor route called “Donkey Flight” by Indians to immigrate to countries such as Canada and the United States.

Taapsee Pannu, whose next release will be Shabaash Mithusaid that Shah Rukh Khan’s films were her introduction to Bollywood.

“For me, the introduction to the movies was done in college. I have not seen many movies in the theater at school (days) because we would hardly see movies in my house. So many of Shah Ruh Khan “The films became the first films I have ever seen,” the 34-year-old actor told PTI.

For Pannu, working at Dunki with two of her favorites – Khan and Hirani – is a dream come true. “When you end up having the opportunity to work with him, it becomes the golden opportunity. And combined with the fact that it is going to be directed by Rajkumar Hirani, whose films are classics, it does not get any better. I do not know how I will ever upload it “, he added.

The Delhi-born actress said she feels deeply connected to the journey and rise of Shah Rukh Khan, who also hails from the national capital.

“He comes from Delhi, the same place as me, he started from scratch. I do not miss the opportunity to tell him every time that he is someone we consider very personal. “Even before I met him, his journey seemed very personal because of how he started and built an empire for himself,” he said.

Taapsee Pannu previously starred in SRK’s 2019 Badla production, also starring Amitabh Bachchan and Amrita Singh.

The actress said she had limited interactions with the 56-year-old superstar during Badla. “From there until I make a movie with him as a co-star, he is very big,” he added.

Dunki hit the floor in April following an official announcement by Shah Rukh Khan on social media. Pannu shared that the team completed the first program of the film.

With the support of JIO Studios, Red Chillies Entertainment and Rajkumar Hirani Films, Dunki is set to hit theaters on December 22, 2023.
