Dunki marked the first collaboration between filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani and Shah Rukh Khan. In a recent interview with a web portal, the director talked about why it took over 20 years for him to work with Shah Rukh Khan.

Hirani shared the story behind it. He said that he was studying at a film school, and according to him, for any filmmaker, the real struggle was how he would make their first film. He was quoted saying, “Will we get a producer? Will any actors come on board?”

He then added that they had a common room where all the students would watch TV together. He recalled that he was watching a series called Circus and vividly remembered the scene, including the camera angle. He saw one actor performing and delivering a monologue. Though he didn’t know who he was, Hirani loved his performance.

At that time, he decided that once he passed out of school, he would approach that actor for a movie. He said it took him two years to graduate from the film institute, and by that time, “Shah Rukh Khan had become a huge star.” He said, “So, I had to wait for 20 years to collaborate with him on a film.”
