All eyes are on Shah Rukh Khan as his most awaited movie 'Pathaan' is getting ready to release. It will be the year's first major release. In reality, 2023 will be a thrilling year for the superstar's fans as, after more than four years, he'll be seen in as many as three movies, all of which will be released this year. While the year starts with Pathaan, his following movie, Jawan, won't hit theatres until June 2 of 2023. Dunki, on the other hand, is most likely to be the final release of 2023. Additionally, there are a lot of expectations as Rajkumar Hirani, who has a 100% success rate as a director, is behind the camera.
In November 2022, it was revealed that Dunki would be the first Hindi movie to be shot in Saudi Arabia. Midway through November, Shah Rukh Khan and the other members of the unit travelled to the Middle Eastern nation and filmed successfully for a crucial schedule. And right now, the Dunki crew is preparing to shoot a vital part of the movie.
According to a source, “Right now, the shooting has been paused as Shah Rukh Khan is busy with the promotions of Pathaan, which releases on January 25. After the film’s release, he’ll resume shooting for Dunki. And he and a few more cast members will shoot for the underwater shots. It is a part of the sequence where the character of Shah Rukh travels in a boat. It requires him to go underwater, as per the demands of the script. The actor will undergo underwater training for some time before shooting it.”
The insider continued, “The scene is set in a foreign location in the film. But it’ll be shot in Mumbai on a set. Once the shoot of this is complete, only a few scenes will remain to be canned. Dunki’s shoot is expected to be over by March.”
Along with Shah Rukh Khan, Taapsee Pannu, Vicky Kaushal, and Boman Irani are featured in Dunki. The movie will debut in theatres on December 22, 2023.
