Bollywood’s King Khan has already conquered 2023 with two of the biggest blockbusters, ‘Pathaan’ and ‘Jawan.’ This massive success has overshadowed the failures of ‘Zero’ and ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal.’ Now, all eyes are on Shah Rukh Khan’s next release, ‘Dunki,’ also scheduled for 2023. Fans are confident about its success even before the release of posters, teasers, or any glimpse, and this is because of the master storyteller, Raju Hirani.
For a long time, moviegoers were sure about ‘Dunki’ having a solo release because Raj Kumar Hirani’s track record with movies like ‘3 Idiots,’ ‘Munna Bhai,’ ‘PK,’ and ‘Sanju’ is enough to tell that he has a 100% success rate. No other director would dare to clash their film with him. But Salaar is confirmed to release on 22 December 2023.
Is Dunki a Remake of CIA?
The clash between ‘Salaar‘ and ‘Dunki’ is not only a headache for producers and distributors, but fans are also more upset about it because the director-actor combos of both films have unparalleled fanbases across the nation. And the third much-awaited film is ‘Aquaman.’ This Hollywood film might receive less attention in India, but the clash between ‘Salaar’ and ‘Dunki’ is truly harmful to the business.
Both fanbases are trying to show down each other. Salaar fans have already made a bold claim that ‘Dunki’ is a remake of the Malayalam movie ‘CIA’ (Comrade in America), starring Dulquer Salmaan and Karthika Muralidharan in key roles. There is nothing official to confirm that ‘Dunki’ is a remake of any film, perhaps fans have found some similarities and started spreading the news.
Amaal Neerad directed CIA is an adventure drama that revolves around a guy who belongs to a political party but he himself is a communist, he falls in love with an American, who later convinced him to go with her but he denies it because of the affection toward his nation.
CIA was released in 2017 and did an average business at the Box Office. Its IMDb rating is 6.4 and received mixed reviews at that time.
