Taapsee Pannu will feature with Shah Rukh for the first time in filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani’s Dunki. Backed by JIO Studios, Red Chillies Entertainment and Rajkumar Hirani Films, Dunki is set to release in theaters on December 22, 2023. The script has been written by Abhijaat Joshi and Kanika Dhillon.
Speaking to Pinkvilla, Taapsee said, “I’ve told him that he is the benchmark or the person that every outsider especially coming from Delhi looks up to. I’m not a superstar but he is the superstar. I don’t really feel like when you work with people like him or superstars like him you realise that’s what the stakes of the word stardom or star. but one move of his just creates a storm everywhere. His victories are personal, his loss is personal, that’s stardom. Not what we feel star is.”
She also spoke about success and failures, “A lot of other things come with success, especially in this country. It teaches you not to take your success or failures either of them too seriously. That I’ve learned. I’ve not been a good loser. I still…. my family members still call me ‘she’s a very sore loser when I play board games’. I am a very sore loser and probably an even worse winner actually. But at work life, I have kind of become better like I don’t take either success or failure too strongly now. It’s not like it doesn’t affect me, it still affects me and it disturbs me a little bit but I have gotten better at coping with it.”
