As we all know, Rajkumar Hirani’s films are usually socially conscious. It appears that his debut collaboration with SRK will be no exception. Dunki is a social drama based on ‘Donkey Flight,’ a border immigration concern, according to a 2021 report.

What is the meaning of donkey flight? Donkey Flight, on the other hand, is a backdoor approach used by immigrants to enter a foreign country via many stops in other countries after failing to reach the target country through legal ways for years.

Hirani’s film tackles this broad issue in his characteristic style, with a story that is both emotional and light-hearted. “It’s the narrative of a Punjabi man and his long journey to Canada,” a source was quoted as saying to the portal.

Even towards the end of the announcement trailer, when the title of the film is revealed, a large group of people is seen wandering through a desert, ostensibly attempting to cross a border while a jet flies above them. The look suggests Dunki movie is based on Donkey Flight.

Rajkumar Hirani, Abhijit Joshi, and Kanika Dhillon wrote the screenplay. The film is a collaboration of JIO Studios, Red Chillies Entertainment, and Rajkumar Hirani Films.
