“Dunki” explores the theme of immigration, with its title derived from the term ‘donkey journey,’ symbolizing the challenging and often perilous routes people take to immigrate. The star-studded cast includes Shah Rukh Khan, Taapsee Pannu, Vicky Kaushal, Boman Irani, Anil Grover, and Vikram Kochhar.

This film marks Shah Rukh Khan’s final release of 2023, following the success of “Pathaan” and “Jawan.” Rajkumar Hirani, the director, expressed his joy in working with Shah Rukh Khan, stating, “After doing action movies, as an actor, he also wanted to do something different, and this is the reason he was very involved and happy about it. I also wanted to work with him for so long, and finally, we worked together, and we had fun.”

“Dunki” encountered mixed reviews from both audiences and critics and clashed with Prabhas’ blockbuster “Salaar: Part 1 – Ceasefire.” The Hindi version of “Salaar” is set to release on Disney+ Hotstar on February 16, adding another layer to the ongoing cinematic clash. Originally filmed in Telugu, “Salaar” was released in theaters in Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, and Tamil, with the non-Hindi versions premiering on Netflix last month.
