For the upcoming social drama Dunki, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan will collaborate with director Rajkumar Hirani for the first time in his acting career. The film, which had a special teaser to mark its formal debut in April 2022, is currently wrapping up production. It is clear from the announcement teaser that the eagerly anticipated production would provide Indian moviegoers with an unique visual experience.

The hitmaker revealed some intriguing details about working with Shah Rukh Khan on Dunki in a recent interview with India Today. Rajkumar Hirani said he was unaware of how diligent SRK is about preparing for his roles. He stated, "Working with him has been such a joy that it’s hard to describe. He brings positive energy to the set and always makes everybody happy around him. I had no idea he prepares so much; I thought of him as an impromptu actor. When an actor is already prepared, it makes your job easier."

The filmmaker also dropped some exciting insights to Shah Rukh Khan's preparations for his role in the film. "He shoots videos of a scene at his home and sends them to me. There will be 15 ways of how he is going to perform this. Before I go on the set, I know what he is going to do. Sometimes I have kept two days for a shoot and he finishes it in two hours. He’s a complete charmer and has great control over the language. He surprised me completely by coming at 7 am to shoot," revealed the senior filmmaker.

According to the most recent information, King Khan is now prepared to start filming the project again after finishing his upcoming movie Jawan, which is directed by the well-known Tamil filmmaker Atlee. The movie's female lead is Taapsee Pannu, and Vicky Kaushal apparently makes a cameo appearance.
