Vicky Kaushal says working with Shah Rukh Khan in Rajkumar Hirani-directed Dunki is a dream come true.
Following two consecutive massive hits, Pathaan and Jawan, Shah Rukh Khan will make a third screen appearance this year with the movie Dunki. Apart from Shah Rukh Khan, the film also stars Taapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal. Vicky Kaushal is also gearing up for his upcoming film, Meghna Gulzar's Sam Bahadur with Sanya Malhotra and Fatima Sana Shaikh. The URI: The Surgical Strike actor has now talked candidly about her collaboration with Shah Rukh Khan in a recent interview.
Vicky stated in an interview with Bollywood Hungama, “It’s a dream come true. Unko milna hi dream come true hota hai, unke saath kaam karna to socho kitna bada dream come true hai." (Imagine how much of a dream it was to work with Shah Rukh—meeting him was already a dream come true.) "That too, in combination with Raju sir directing you", he added.
He described it as a dream come true to work on film alongside Shah Rukh. He went on to say that after working with him, he at last realized why SRK is known as Bollywood's "Badshah" and that no one else compares to him.
“So main bohot zyada detail mein baat nahi kar sakta uske baare mein, because there's a different process of that," he continued. "But itna main zaroor bol sakta hu ki unke saath kaam karke mujhe pata laga ki wo Badshah kyu hain. He is something else. Unke jaisa koi hai nahi. So I can’t talk about it in detail, but I can tell you this. I understood why he is the Badshah, after working with him. There’s no one like him."
The heartwarming story of four friends traveling to foreign is told in Dunki. It follows their difficult yet transformative road to realizing their aspirations. The movie's opening song, Lutt Putt Gaya, was also released more recently.
Shah Rukh Khan, Taapsee Pannu, Boman Irani, and Vicky Kaushal play the key parts in the film Dunki. The film is slated for a global theatrical release this Christmas under the direction of Rajkumar Hirani and presented by Jio Studios, Red Chillies Entertainment, and Rajkumar Hirani Films.
