Actor Shah Rukh Khan will soon be searched all over Rajasthan by two little kids ageing eight and twelve in Nagesh Kukunoor’s upcoming movie Dhanak. The actor, who watched the trailer of the film is impressed by the little children who play siblings in the film.
He was so moved by the trailer that he took to Twitter to give her best wishes to Chotu and Pari.
He wrote, “My best wishes to these beautiful kids & to Nagesh & Elahe.”
The film, which is about a young girl going out on a search of superstar Shah Rukh Khan with her younger brother (Chotu) who is blind is heart wrenching which also offers funny moments to the viewers.
Shah Rukh Khan tweeted:
Lines yaad kar lena bahut saari hain. All the best my gang. https://t.co/B4tEXK5SIs

The film was honoured at the 65th Berlin International Film Festival. Directed by Nagesh Kukunoor, the film will begin the journey of these two kids from June 10 onwards.
The newly released trailer beautifully captures the journey of the two kids as they set out, hand-in-hand walking miles across unfamiliar terrain to meet one man who they feel can help them when even God himself has failed, Shah Rukh Khan.
The kids learn about Bollywood superstar shooting in far away hamlet in Rajasthan and embark on the arduous journey and while on it they run into different set of people including a sadhvi who advises them to ask something more worthy than SRK by way of boon.
The scene stealers of the movie are undoubtedly the young kids essaying the role of Pari(Hetal Gada) and Chotu(Krrish Chhabria). While Pari is effortless in her innocence, Chotu’s blind act is refreshing to watch for it is devoid of the usual stereotypes commonly associated with blind people.
He walks, speaks, jumps and behaves like any other normal kid with the only exception being that he can’t see.
Directed by the redoubtable Nagesh Kukoonor, Dhanak has already impressed many at various prestigious film festivals including the Berlin one where it bagged big honours.
“This dynamically-directed film delivers joy and heartbreak in equal measure – the young brother and sister at its heart and the unbreakable love between them is irresistible… Filled with colour, magic, music, spontaneity and a plenty of emotion, this film lives up to its name and delivers a celebration of life to savor long after the end credits roll!” wrote the International Jury.
