After the success of Pathaan and Jawan, Shah Rukh Khan's next release is Dunki, which marks his first collaboration with filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani.

In an interview with Deadline at the Red Sea Festival, Khan spoke about the film's title and said, “In English, it would be called ‘Donkey’ but the way a part of the country pronounces donkey in India–the Punjabis– it is ‘dunki’. It is a film directed by one of the most brilliant filmmakers we have in the country, Rajkumar Hirani. It is written by a fantastic writer, Abhijat Joshi."

Commenting on the film's storyline, Khan added, “It is a story of people who want to come back home when you finally get the calling. His films are always a mix of comedy and a lot of emotions, about the country. It is a big journey film, it goes through different areas around the world and finally comes back home, to India,”

Dunki also stars Taapsee Pannu and Boman Irani. The film is scheduled to release in December 2023.
