Shahrukh Khan’s next film ‘Dinky’, which has given successful films like ‘Pathan’ and ‘Jawaan’ this year, is going to be released on Christmas. This film has been directed by Rajkumar Hirani. The first teaser of the film has been released. Its story is woven around some people who want to go to the US.
Shahrukh said he does not fit in this role: Farah
Now in an interview, Farah Khan told that she had offered a similar script to Shahrukh a few years ago. However, Shahrukh rejected it saying that he would not fit in this role as he was not young. Farah shared this incident and said, ‘When I saw the promo of Dunki, I was shocked. Its story is similar to the first version of my film ‘Happy New Year’, which was rejected by Shahrukh.
Shahrukh had rejected the first version of ‘Happy New Year’
Farah further said, ‘When I wrote the first version of ‘Happy New Year’, the story of this film was based on 4 such boys who wanted to go to America. Shahrukh did not like that version of the film. He said that I will look quite old in this character, it is the role of a young boy. This is quite strange for me because now I am watching the promo of ‘Dinky’. My story was quite similar to ‘Dinky’.
Is ‘Dinky’ another version of ‘Munna Bhai Chale America’?
Looking at the promo of Donkey, it is being speculated that the film is the story of a group who just want to reach the US. Even if they have to adopt wrong methods for this. It is also being claimed in some reports that ‘Dinky’ is the second version of Rajkumar Hirani’s other film ‘Munna Bhai Chale America’. This film was to be made with Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi, but it was never made.
‘Happy New Year’ had earned Rs 408 crore worldwide
