Casting director Mukesh Chhabra recently opened up on Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming film, Dunki. In a recent interview with Indianexpress.com, said it is going to be a film that will be ‘remembered for the next ten years.”
He expressed his enthusiasm, stating, “When I read the script of Dunki, I was blown away. If you loved 3 Idiots, it is going to be 100 times better than that. I have cried whenever I have read the script. Every time.”
“The film will break all the records. It is the purest form of filmmaking, like how we remember Anand, Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s films, Do Aankhen Barah Haath? Same way you will be talking about Dunki for many, many years to come. I mean it. Every piece of my heart feels this,” he added.
Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, Dunki features an ensemble cast including Shah Rukh Khan and Taapsee Pannu in lead roles, with Boman Irani and Vicky Kaushal portraying supporting characters.
The film is set to release in theatres on December 21 ahead of the Christmas weekend. It will be clashing with Prabhas’ pan-India film Salaar at the box office.
