"Dunki" marks a promising collaboration between Bollywood's superstar Shah Rukh Khan and acclaimed director Rajkumar Hirani. This emotional entertainer is generating considerable buzz prior to its release, being touted as a potential jackpot for both Khan and Hirani.
Hirani is known for his ability to craft compelling stories rich in natural emotions and entertainment value, often working with modest budgets. "Dunki" follows suit, reportedly made on a 100Cr budget, excluding the remunerations for Hirani and Khan.
Despite the relatively modest budget, the film's non-theatrical business has already closed around 250Cr, covering the production expenses and leaving a surplus of around 150Cr. With the release date recently confirmed, the anticipation for this film is escalating.
If Hirani delivers a solid storyline as he has done in his previous films, "Dunki" could potentially propel Shah Rukh Khan back into the 1000Cr Club. The film's theatrical earnings could surpass 400Cr, and overall, it has the potential to rake in a share in the 600Cr range for all involved parties, considering that 100Cr covers the budget, with the remainder distributed to Khan, Hirani, and other stakeholders as producers.
"Dunki" is poised to be a commercially successful venture, combining Hirani's storytelling prowess with Khan's star power, and is anticipated to make a significant impact both critically and financially upon its release.
