Inspiration behind Dunki

Shah Rukh recently shared a video which had the Dunki team talking about the film. It had Rajkumar Hirani talking about how the film's story came from the imagery of the house with a large cemented replica of an Air India plane on its terrace, something he initially found funny. "There are many houses in Punjab that have planes on the rooftops. I was quite amazed by that and that's what piqued our curiosity. Family members of those children who live abroad find it fashionable to put these planes on top of their houses," he said. When Rajkumar Hirani started researching for the film, he said he discovered how people who seek a better life in countries such as the UK and Canada take the illegal 'donkey route', called 'dunki' in Punjabi, out of India when they court visa troubles.
