Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan is back on the silver screen after a long hiatus and will be seen in Raj Kumar Hirani’s next film.
Just a few weeks ago, the actor had announced the release of ‘Pathaan’ and now the actor announced his next film Dunki, with director Rajkumar Hirani. The film also stars Taapsee Pannu and is set to release on December 22, 2023.
Shah Rukh Khan took to Twitter and called the ‘3 Idiots’ director his Santa Claus. The actor shared an announcement video along with his tweet.
The video has SRK and Hirani talking about Dunki which will have comedy, emotion and romance, but minus SRK’s signature pose. The actor jokes that he will happily chop off his arms to work with the director.
