Filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani has been making headlines lately, particularly for his upcoming project, Dunki, starring Shah Rukh Khan, and his efforts to promote new talent through the Newcomers Initiative. While fans eagerly await the release of Dunki, recent reports from Zoom reveal that Hirani is expanding his horizons into the world of OTT platforms. Interestingly, he has chosen Vikrant Massey as the lead for this exciting venture.
The latest buzz indicates that Rajkumar Hirani is delving into the OTT realm with Vikrant Massey in a prominent role. However, Hirani is not stepping into the director’s chair for this project; he’s taking on the role of a producer while contributing his creative insights.
As preparations for production are in full swing, the final cast and other essential details are swiftly coming together. Hirani had his eye on the OTT space for the past year or two, and as soon as the right script came along, he wasted no time in getting the project underway.
Rajkumar Hirani’s Dunki explores a compelling narrative centred around an illegal immigration method known as “Donkey Flight,” with Shah Rukh Khan leading the way. This film is a collaborative effort between Red Chillies Entertainment and Jio Studios, featuring Taapsee Pannu, Dia Mirza, and Boman Irani in prominent roles.
Vikrant Massey’s recent film, 12th Fail, has just hit theatres, and early reviews suggest a positive reception. Directed by the acclaimed Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Massey has made a mark with notable roles in Mumbaikar, Gaslight, and Forensic. His upcoming movie, Phir Aayi Haseen Dilruba, is on the horizon.
