He had added that the energy, charisma, humour and charm that King Khan brings to a film is unparalleled, and that he is looking forward to bring that magic on screen.
Dunki also features Taapsee Pannu in a pivotal role. The actress had previously mentioned in an interview that she has to pinch herself everyday to believe that she is working with Shah Rukh Khan whose films she has grown up watching.
Reportedly, Shah Rukh Khan-Taapsee Pannu's Dunki is a social drama which revolves around the rampant use of an illegal backdoor route called 'Donkey Flight' by Indians to immigrate to different countries.
