The beloved Parekh family of Khichadi is back with a mission, — to tickle your funny bone until you fall off your seat. After a long wait of 13 years, the lovable goofballs — Praful, Hansa, Jayshree, Babuji, and Himanshu — return with a new adventure, Khichadi 2: Mission Paanthukistan. In an interview, director Aatish Kapadia spoke about the film, "It was more of a responsibility than a challenge as people liked Khichdi 1 so much and people like Khichdi as a franchise so much that going above that is our responsibility... Now, when we watched it after edits, it felt that we played that responsibility well." So, buckle up, cinephiles; this is going to be a hilariously wild ride.

Ranbir Kapoor will be seen venturing into uncharted territory, portraying an extremely complex character in this film. Ranbir himself confessed, "It's a new territory for me. It's a crime drama and a father-son story. It's something audiences don't expect me to do. It is completely out of my comfort zone."

DUNKI

While the film is shrouded in mystery, it does promise to be a delightful blend of comedy and drama, staying true to Hirani's signature storytelling style. In SRK's words, "It is a story of people who want to return home when you finally get the calling. The film goes through different areas around the world and finally comes back home to India." So, mark your calendars because Hirani's storytelling finesse coupled with Khan's unmatched charm is a combination that simply can't be missed.
