Dunki Poster Raises Questions: Debunking Shah Rukh Khan's Film Poster's Ties to Palestine

Shah Rukh Khan's upcoming film 'Dunki,' directed by Rajkumar Hirani, is generating significant anticipation ahead of its release. The movie, a first-time collaboration between the acclaimed actor and filmmaker, has entered the spotlight as promotional activities intensify with less than a month until its theatrical debut. 

Recently, Shah Rukh shared a poster featuring himself and co-star Taapsee Pannu in the first song, 'Lutt Putt Gaya.' However, some fans speculated about a specific element in the poster, linking it to the Israel-Hamas War and interpreting it as an 'endorsement' of the Palestinian cause. The poster, set in Punjab, shows Shah Rukh and Taapsee on a lively street surrounded by a crowd with painted faces. 

Various flags, including one with black, white, and red colors, sparked speculation about its resemblance to the Palestinian flag. Some fans expressed gratitude, perceiving it as 'support' for Palestine.Here's the truth 

Contrary to these assumptions, the red, black, and white flag in question is not that of Palestine but of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Although the color schemes of the two flags are similar, they differ in design. The Palestinian flag features a red triangle protrusion, absent in the Emirati flag, a detail visible in the Dunki poster.

Moreover, several Central Asian countries share similar flags with minor differences in design, making it crucial to differentiate between them accurately.
