Khan also said he expects the film to leave audiences with a feeling of love for their country and family, “between giggles and laughter.”

He also said, “I don’t know. Raju Hirani saab ne bhi kabhi aesi film nahi banai (Rajkumar Hirani hasn’t made a film like this.) When we finished the film and saw it for the first time, humko aesa laga Raju Hirani saab ne love story bana di hai which spans ages. (When we saw the film, we thought Hirani had made a love story that spans ages).”

In a recent interview, Khan said the film is “touching” and that Hirani has never made a film like it. He also said the film’s name comes from the Punjabi pronunciation of “donkey.”

“It’s a very touching film. I think ye pyaar ki kahani hai, isme action hai jo Raju Hirani ne kabhi dala nhi hai. Both saare sequences aese hai jo I think maine nhi kiye hue. It’s a story of love; it has action that Rajkumar Hirani hasn’t done before. There are many sequences that I think I haven’t done. All that is there but Raju never shows his films in the trailers and teasers. He likes people to come to the theatre and enjoy it. So, you will find lots of love and comedy.”

‘Dunki’ promotion also happened on a giant wheel at the Global Village. King Khan also does his signature pose for his fans.

‘Dunki’ features an ensemble cast, with colourful characters portrayed by Boman Irani, Taapsee Pannu, Vicky Kaushal, Vikram Kochhar, Anil Grover, along with Shah Rukh Khan. ‘Dunki’, a JIO Studios, Red Chillies Entertainment, and Rajkumar Hirani Films presentation, produced by Rajkumar Hirani and Gauri Khan.

Written by Abhijat Joshi, Rajkumar Hirani, and Kanika Dhillon, ‘Dunki’ is a heartwarming tale of four friends and their quest to reach foreign shores.

It charts the arduous yet life-changing journey they are about to undertake to make their dreams come true. Drawn from real-life experiences, ‘Dunki’ is a saga of love and friendship that brings together these wildly disparate stories and provides hilarious and heartbreaking answers.

Recently, the makers unveiled Dunki’s official trailer titled ‘Dunki: Drop 4’ which offers a peek into the world of Rajkumar Hirani. Opening with SRK onboard a train sets the tone for the adventure that lies ahead.

The video unit introduces the whimsical characters, starting with Hardy, played by SRK, who enters a picturesque village in Punjab and encounters a group of spirited friends–Manu, Sukhi, Buggu, and Balli–all sharing a common dream of travelling to London in pursuit of better opportunities and a better life for their loved ones back home.
