Bollywood director Hansal Mehta recently reviewed Dunki, starring Shah Rukh Khan . Today, the director discussed King Khan's movie on X, formerly known as Twitter, and he gave SRK's performance in the movie high marks.

On December 21, Rajkumar Hirani's film Dunki was released in theaters. It is Shah Rukh's third film of this year. Hansal Mehta stated, "I really enjoyed Dunki. Not perfect but so what. It’s perfectly fine. It gave me what I miss at the movies. It was nostalgic, heartfelt, simple, and an ode to what our films once used to be. Not a film I want to overanalyse or overthink." 

"Give me a Rajkumar Hirani film any day. Nice to end the year with Shah Rukh Khan tugging at your heartstrings, looking into her eyes with love, and playing a softie. Lovely ensemble and an enduring charm pervades the film which is not a drama, not a comedy, not a tragedy, and not a thriller. It is a Rajkumar Hirani film all the way. Go watch it and decide for yourself," Hansal Mehta further added.
