Shah Rukh Khan’s Dunki DOP Amit Roy quits film due to differences with Rajkumar Hirani

Dunki’s Director of Photography/ Cinematographer, Amit Roy, has quit the film after creative differences with director Rajkumar Hirani. The film stars Shah Rukh Khan.


  • Dunki’s DOP Amit Roy has quit the film.
  • He cited creative differences with director Rajkumar Hirani.
  • The film stars Shah Rukh Khan in the lead role.

Shah Rukh Khan’s fans were excited when the actor announced his film, Dunki in April, 2022. The film, which also stars Taapsee Pannu, went on floors this year. In fact, the first schedule of Dunki has already been wrapped up. It has now come to light that the DOP (Director of Photography) of Dunki Amit Roy has quit the project. In a new interview, cited ‘creative differences’ with the film’s director Rajkumar Hirani.


In an interview with Etimes, Amit Roy said, “I am not doing Dunki anymore. I shot for 18-19 days and quit. Raju Hirani and I had some creative differences. We both couldn’t see from the same angle. But let me tell you that the parting was very amicable. We both sat down and then I quit. Honestly, I didn’t want it to reach a stage of friction.” He added, “It happens sometimes. I had shot a song in Sanju for Hirani- the Baba Bolta Hai Bas Ho Gaya song. We had a great time then. I have also done a few ads for him. But you see, an ad is a collaborative effort wherein the client’s vision also matters. But when it comes to a film, it is the director’s vision. The shots I took will be retained.”

Amit Roy started his career as a cinematographer with Ishq Vishk (2003). He later worked in films such as Dil Maange More!!! (2004), Ram Gopal Varma ki Aag (2007), Sarkar Raj (2008), Deewana Main Deewana (2013) and many more.


Dunki is backed by JIO Studios, Red Chillies Entertainment and Rajkumar Hirani Films. The film is due for theatrical release on December 22, 2023. Apart from Shah Rukh Khan and Taapsee the film will also star Boman Irani.
