A lot of people take to get out of their country across borders all over the world. It’s called the donkey travels. Humare desh se bhi jate hai, dus re desh se bhi jate hai (people from our country as well as other countries undertake this journey). It’s about going out, finding a future for yourself, but loving your home the most. It’s about homecoming. Ghar me wapas ane ki baat hai. Duniya me kahi par bhi jee lo, par dil me yehi reheta hai ki apni maati pe aake rest karo, rehe jao. (It’s about coming back to your roots. Wherever you stay, but no feeling can match to that of homecoming). That’s the film is all about.” For the unversed, Dunki means Donkey in Punjabi. Donkey is pronounced as Dunki in Punjabi.
