Shah Rukh Khan is encouraged by the success of his ₹1000 crore film, ‘Jawaan,’ which was released on September 7. As per a new report by Pinkvilla, the actor has big plans for his third film, ‘Dunki,’ which is set to be released around Christmas in India. The film is directed by Rajkumar Hirani and is reportedly scheduled for a grand international release a day before on December 21.
The film ‘Dunki’ is expected to become a global phenomenon, and all stakeholders are eager to establish it as a showcase of Indian cinema on the world stage. While the campaign for ‘Jawaan’ is focused on the South markets, Red Chillies Entertainment will take ‘Dangal’ to the global level with its appeal and message. According to a source, extensive plans are in progress, and with an extended holiday season around Christmas, the film is scheduled to hit international markets on December 21 in full force.
The source further revealed that ‘Dunki’ is set to be a global blockbuster event with a focus on oral promotion, creating excitement among the audience from Friday to Sunday, the traditional weekend.

The film also stars Taapsee Pannu in a significant role. ‘Dunki,’ directed by Rajkumar Hirani, purportedly has its release date set for December 22 in India. The entertainer is said to address issues related to illicit immigration. The film is currently in the editing phase and is gearing up for a theatrical release during the Christmas weekend.
Recently, during the ‘Jawaan’ success meet, Shah Rukh Khan confirmed the release date of his upcoming film. Amid the success of ‘Pathan’ and ‘Jawaan,’ both released in January, he dispelled speculations and confirmed that ‘Dunki’ is slated for release. He said, “We started with January 26, Republic Day (with ‘Pathan’), then we released ‘Jawaan’ on Janmashtami, now the new year and Christmas are approaching, and we will release ‘Dunki.’ I value national unity. Besides, when my film is released, it’s a holiday.
