Shah Rukh Khan and his team must be on cloud nine post the success of Dunki. Moreover, the report of Red Chillies Entertainment planning to submit the movie for the Oscars has filled excitement among SRK fans. The movie helmed by Rajkumar Hirani, also starring Taapsee Pannu, Boman Irani, and Vicky Kaushal among others, has received praise from audience and critics as well, even though it couldn’t achieve a remarkable feat at the box office.

Well, SRK teamed up with Rajkumar Hirani, Taapsee Pannu, Vicky Kaushal, and many others for the first time in Dunki. While fans were in awe after Vicky and Taapsee’s reaction to sharing screen space with SRK, now, another co-star from the movie revealed something interesting about the Pathaan actor.

Boman Irani, who portrayed the character of Geetendar ‘Geetu’ Gulati in Dunki, a comedy-drama based on illegal immigration technique, shared his experience of working with Shah Rukh Khan.

During a recent interaction with Connect FM Canada, Boman said that SRK has a grasp of his roots and he lightens the atmosphere on the set by making self-deprecating jokes. Further, the Munna Bhai MBBS actor said that the Jawan actor is well aware of the experience of someone working in their early films and how they get treated. SRK recognises that an individual is contributing his/her talent, art and essence and doesn’t treat them as a mere commodity or a supplier.

Boman said, “I think Shah Rukh Khan understands where he came from. I think I’m judging. I may be wrong, but he understands what it is for a person to be doing one of their first films in the film industry and how one is treated. Not as a commodity, not as a person who’s supplying something. That person is supplying his talent, his art, his being. I think he understands that.”

Further, the Sanju actor stated that SRK values his initial days in the film industry. Not solely due to success but also for meaningful experiences. Boman also stated that he believes Shah Rukh desires a positive atmosphere on the film set for newcomers as it enhances the overall quality of the movie.

Boman was quoted as saying, “People are walking in, feeling nice. There is a certain energy when he arrives. Nobody is petrified. People are looking forward to his arrival and then we can start cracking jokes.”
