Rajkumar Hirani is one of the dream directors for every actor. He has made light-hearted films that can be watched every day once in a while. And now he is coming with Dunki, starring superstar Shah Rukh Khan. It took decades for these two talents to work together. Rajkumar Hirani has given several fantastic films, and will Dunki continue his success streak? And the answer is Yes.
Trade expert Akshaye Rathi got candid in an exclusive interview with BL, where we questioned him about whether Dunki would be able to create the same magic, to which he confidently replied yes.
Sighting an example of Raju Hirani previous films, Akshaye Rathi said,” Rajkumar Hirani is the only director who has given the actors their iconic roles, as he has believed in his story-telling like no one else.”
He further added, “During the time of Vaastav, he gave Sanjay Dutt, Munna Bhai, and this character became the most endearing character in the actor’s career. When Aamir Khan was doing Ghajini, he transformed him into a college boy with 3 Idiots. Ranbir Kapoor had this chocolate boy image until Raju gave him Sanju.
I feel Shah Rukh Khan has leaned himself towards Raju Hirani, and truly they will bring something magical.”
We also questioned Akshaye Rathi if Dunki is a risk-taking film for SRK after blockbusters like Jawan and Pathaan. He said, “I don’t feel there is any risk-taking. “It’s Raju Hirani, and not going by the stereotypical image of Shah Rukh Khan, he has proved to be the most successful actor.
