Recently, Taapsee Pannu spoke to Bollywood Hungama, and said that she is grateful for Dunki coming her way. “I am so happy and glad that it is this film I am doing with Rajkumar Hirani and Shah Rukh Khan. I will not shy away when the film releases thinking ‘Sirf hero ke liye kar li ya or because of Raju sir kar li’. Who wouldn’t want to be in an SRK film? I was lucky that I got this one which has such a pivotal part. It is more than whatever you have seen any female actor do in a Raju sir film,” she said.
The film is backed by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chilies Entertainment. Dunki will be released on the big screen on December 22, 2023.
