The internet went ablaze a few hours ago when a video dropped. While it wasn't enough that Shah Rukh Khan starred in that video, in a mere few seconds, people saw the legendary Rajkumar Hirani coming in. Watching Hirani and Khan in one frame went on to confirm rumors that have been swirling around for the longest time now that yes, indeed, the stalwarts are collaborating for a dream project together.
Khan will be seen in and as Dunki in the movie, and while he first makes fun of it wondering if it is called 'Donkey' but he comes around it anyway.
SRK wrote, along with the video: Dear @hirani.rajkumar sir, Aap toh Mere Santa Claus nikle. Aap shuru karo main time pe pahunch jaunga. actually main toh set par hi rehne lagunga!Feeling humbled and excited to finally work with you.Bringing to you all #Dunki in cinemas on 22nd December 2023.
But if there is one person for whom this movie is most special - it has to be Taapsee Pannu. The lady also confirmed being a part of the project. But it seems, the confirmation has finally sunk in a while later as the actor couldn't help but express her excitement of being in such a huge project and working with two legends of the industry. Her tweet read, "Yes it’s hard to make it till here, n it’s harder when u r all by yourself but then a superstar once said “agar kisi cheez ko dil se chaho toh puri kaynaat tumhe usse milane mein lag jaati hai” cheers to honesty, hard work and perseverance. Almost 10 saal lage but finally “All is Well”"
It was very witty of Pannu to not only use SRK's iconic line from Om Shanti Om to express her joy but also take another iconic line 'All is well' from Hirani's blockbuster saga, 3 Idiots.
We already cannot wait.
