“Pathaan and Jawan were just trailers. Dunki is the real movie,” says one of the fans as Shah Rukh Khan’s latest movie has hit the theatres. Fans are calling it the best Rajkumar Hirani film to date. That sounds like a tall claim since Hirani is known for all-time classics like 3 Idiots, Munnabhai MBBS and PK.
“What a movie! I loved every bit of it. Thank you, Rajkumar Hirani, for giving Shah Rukh Khan back to old fans like me,” said an overseas fan. “Now, I’m feeling homesick.”
Shah Rukh Khan’s much-awaited film Dunki has been released in theatres, generating immense excitement among fans. Some have even booked early morning shows to be the first to watch it.
Celebrations outside cinemas feature effigies of Shah Rukh Khan, fireworks and enthusiastic fan cheers, creating a festive atmosphere.
This excitement is echoed on social media, where fans are eagerly sharing their excitement and admiration for the Bollywood star, turning the release into a grand celebration.
Comedian Sunil Pal was among the SRK fans who gathered at the theatres early in the morning. He said that ₹2,000 crore is an obvious outcome (Banta Hai) for the film. “ ₹1,000 crore for the magician called Hirani and ₹1,000 crore for the “Baazigar” Shah Rukh Khan,” he added.
“Vicky Kaushal is outstanding, supporting cast is also very good. I will give it 3.5 stars…,” one fan told ANI.
“I had a lot of expectations from Raju Hirani but I guess he could not evolve with time, the jokes and writing were old. I am a Shah Rukh fan but I am very disappointed…,” another fan said.
“I am a huge Shah Rukh fan, I was waiting for this movie…But I am super disappointed,” came from another.
