Rajkumar Hirani Asks Shah Rukh Khan To Watch Dunki Trailer
Shah Rukh Khan was doing his usual Ask SRK session and then director Rajkumar Hirani asked Shah Rukh to come out of bathroom and watch Dunki trailer. This is so typical SRK’s tongue in cheek humour.
Hirani said, “Sirji ab bathroom se bahar aa jao. Kya kar rahe ho? Trailer dikhana hain.”
Shah Rukh Khan replied, “Oh Sh#%. Coming sir…doston se baat kar raha tha!!! Sorry boys and girls have to rush now. Varna #Dunki se nikaal denge!!! Thanks for ur time boys and girls. See u in the theatres very very soon. Love u all. So much to do less time to talk to you….Muah.”
This also escalated anticipation for biggest film of the year Dunki as this film brings together biggest star SRK and biggest director Rajkumar Hirani together for the first time.
SRK’s tweet also ensures that promotion for the film will start very soon!
Shah Rukh Khan Claims Dunki Release Date
Shah Rukh Khan keeps his fans happy by indulging in frequent cheeky tweets on social media platforms. Today he tweeted about release date of Dunki in middle of rumours of clash of the film with Prabhas starrer Salaar.
He shared on social media, “Dunki fixed hi hai. Aur kya karoon Maathe pe gudwaa loon.”
Dunki’s confirmed release date emailed to Exhibitors
This morning the makers of Dunki have sent an email to exhibitors across the country, confirming the release date of the film and requesting them to block the screens for the same.
After the reports of Prabhas starrer Salaar too releasing on Christmas surfaced, there were rumours that Shah Rukh Khan starrer may be looking at another date next year, but this email has now quashed all the rumours of film’s postponement. The film will release on Christmas 2023 as planned and announced earlier.
Dunki to release a day earlier in overseas
According to a source close to the development, Dunki is expected to be a global phenomenon and the team is keen to position it as a global offering from Indian cinema.
“While Jawan’s campaign focused on the Southern market, with Dunki, Red Chillies will be going global with their appeal and messaging. Big plans are in place and the plans are locked to bring the film in the international markets on December 21, reaping the benefit of the extended holiday period,” the source revealed.
The source further added that Dunki will have a full-fledged release on December 21 and not just late-night premiere shows. “The idea is to maximize on word of mouth and get the audience excited for the conventional weekend from Friday to Sunday. SRK is the biggest Indian name in the international belts and with the support of global holidays, Dunki will do unimaginable numbers in the four-day weekend period before getting into Christmas holiday,” the source shared.
