Dunki is Shah Rukh’s third film this year, following the blockbuster hits ‘Pathaan’ and ‘Jawan.’ While the film centers on illegal immigration in a comedic drama, it did not generate the same frenzy as Shah Rukh’s earlier releases.

Leading the pre-booking race, Salaar has already accumulated ₹13.50 crores in advance sales, setting the stage for a gripping box office battle.

Starring Shah Rukh Khan as Harrdy, Dunki boasts stellar performances from Taapsee Pannu, Boman Irani, and Vicky Kaushal. The film revolves around the intriguing theme of illegal immigration, exploring the unconventional concept of “Donkey Flights.” Produced under the esteemed banners of Red Chillies Entertainment and Jio Studios, Dunki has heightened anticipation for its potential success.

Shah Rukh Khan’s comeback in 2023 has been remarkable, with ‘Pathaan’ and ‘Jawan’ receiving critical acclaim and immense box office success. Despite Salaar’s tough competition, expectations are high for Dunki. Director Atlee predicts it will become Shah Rukh Khan’s highest-grossing film to date.
