Following his impactful cameo in Salman Khan’s “Tiger 3,” Shah Rukh Khan is now poised to captivate audiences once again with the highly anticipated release of his upcoming film, “Dunki.” Directed by the acclaimed Rajkumar Hirani, the film also features the talents of Taapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal in pivotal roles. Riding the wave of success from his last two blockbusters, “Pathaan” and “Jawan,” SRK is set to break new box office records with “Dunki.” As the film’s release draws near, much speculation surrounds its production budget. While initial estimates suggested a substantial investment, recent media reports reveal a surprisingly different picture.
For those unfamiliar with the film’s production, “Dunki” was shot concurrently with Shah Rukh Khan’s other highly anticipated project, “Jawan.” With just a month remaining until its release, the film’s creators are going all out to maintain the buzz and excitement surrounding it. The recent release of the film’s first drop was met with overwhelming praise from audiences, further fueling anticipation. Now, here’s the surprising revelation about the film’s budget.
Contrary to widespread speculation, recent media reports indicate that “Dunki” is Shah Rukh Khan’s most affordable film in the last six years. This unexpected revelation comes as a surprise, given the film’s star power and the reputation of director Rajkumar Hirani for producing high-budget productions. The exact budget figures have not been disclosed, but this news suggests that the film’s creators have prioritized a compelling storyline and strong performances over extravagant expenditures.
This revelation has generated a buzz on social media, with netizens expressing their opinions on the film’s budget and its potential impact on its success. One user commented, “I love that the budget is under control. According to someone else, the budget sanctioned by SRK was 70 cr and the film went over budget by 15 crore, which made it reach 85 crore. It’s easier to attain a blockbuster verdict with even 250-300 crore (ik the verdict depends on distributor price, but with controlled budgets, films usually get sold in a price around the budgets).”
