Kanika Dhillon has co-written Dunki with Rajkumar Hirani and Abhijat Joshi.
We are already at the end of the year and it turns out Shah Rukh Khan is already here to help us bid goodbye to the year that was supremely fulfilling for the Hindi film industry with his third film of the year, Dunki. The movie that is helmed by Rajkumar Hirani is one of the most anticipated movies of the year for various reasons. One of which is, of course, the filmmaker’s track record of blockbusters. Now his co-writer, Kanika Dhillon, has penned a super special note to mark the end of a successful year.
Writer, producer, and now actor Kanika Dhillon has given Hindi cinema some very beautiful stories and characters. As she dons the producer’s hat, is also an actor, and is associated with some of the most anticipated projects, she decided to thank the year when it all came to fruition. Dhillon has penned a long note on Instagram where she thanks her first lead as a producer, Kajol, her partner Kriti Sanon, the Dunki team, and others for everything possible because of them.
In the post, Kanika Dhillon wrote, “Thank u for so many milestones at work! #dunki #phiraayi haseendilruba and #dopatti. So happy and grateful- posting my favorites! 1) Turned producer with Kathha Pictures and my first film with Netflix as writer/producer! - Do Patti. And got my first dream cast - Kajol ma’am as one of our leading ladies. It’s difficult not to fall in love with her on-screen and off-screen!
Kanika Dhillon, while talking about Dunki and Kriti Sanon, added, “2) my leading lady and co-producer Kriti Sanon! We at Kathha pictures are so delighted to have ur immense talent and commitment! 3) Release of this beautiful film - Dunki. Where I got to work with ppl I have admired and started out with - Shah Rukh Khan and of course the inimitable- Raj Kumar Hirani and my constant partner in crime- Tapsee Pannu.
