“That’s him. I met him and I realized how little I am doing at this age. He just gives his 100% in everything. He is just something else. It was like this was his first film, ” he told Johar.

Dunki Body-double scene

Reminiscing Dunki’s film shoot, Vicky Kaushal revealed that there was a short scene where he had to share the screen with Jawan actor but due to some last-minute urgent work, the latter had to abruptly leave for Delhi and thus the scene was done with the help of a body double.

“I told him we had done it well, but he insisted that he would come back and shoot it. However, I requested him to see the shoot done with his body double, and only after seeing the scene, he was convinced it was done well,” Kaushal shared.

Led by Shah Rukh Khan – Dunki also stars Taapsee Pannu, Vicky Kaushal, and Boman Irani in pivotal roles. The highly anticipated film will be released on 21 December.
