Donkey OTT rights

As per the Report, SRK and Hirani’s Combo “Donki” set the record for becoming the most significant amount anyone has ever charged for the digital rights of a film being released in a single language.

The OTT of Dunki has been sold for a whopping price of Rs. 155 crore.It means it already earned this massive amount even before it dropped in theaters. And it seems like the spurting colossus already has its eyes on the much-awaited project.

Shahrukh Khan, one of the most successful film stars, the richest in the world, India’s most popular Bollywood superhero, and a very handsome, talented, and hardworking Hindi cinema diva, is coming to the silver screen with one of the most highly anticipated movies, “Donkey.”

King Khan is ready again at the box office to set up the ticket booth after a super hit and 2nd highest-grossing Hindi film, Pathan.

After doing too many romantic and action films, Dunki is unlike anything Badshah of Bollywood has ever produced in his career.  

Moreover, The most acclaimed filmmaker, patriotic writer, producer, and director, Rajkumar Hirani, performed the most critical task of writing along with directing and filmmaking in the supposing year’s biggest blockbuster.

A masterpiece by Rajkumar will be released on December 22, 2023, coinciding with Christmas. The magnum opus has Hirani’s trademark patriotic message, with a blend of humor and emotion.

But Now the question arises? Who paid this enormous amount?

Five months before its release, Indian billionaire businessman Mukesh Dhirubhai Ambani’s Reliance-owned Jio Cinema purchased the OTT rights to the social comedy film for more than 150 crore

SRK and Haseen Dilruba Tappase Pennu play prominent roles, along with Boman Irani, Vicky Kaushal, and Satish Shah, who are playing supporting roles and have the entire industry abuzz with the excitement of this gripping project.

The story revolves around the lead characters, who use an illegal backdoor route called “Donkey Flight” to immigrate to countries like Canada and the USA.

During their voyage, they face offensive challenges and adventures in different parts of the world and eventually perceive the value of their native land.

Dunki hopefully maintains the name “Brand SRK” due to his first-time collaboration with Tappsee Pannu and the helming of Muna Bhai MBBS and PK star Rajkumar Hirani.

The comedy-drama also marks the comeback of Devdas after a hiatus of four years, as SRk was last seen in Zero.

The fascinating piece was shot in various locations, including Saudi Arabia, Jammu, and Kashmir. The whole team receives a warm welcome at all the locations.
