Pari has promised her little blind brother Chotu that she’ll help get his eyesight back before he turns 10. When she spots her favorite star Shah Rukh Khan on the poster for an eye-donation drive, she is convinced her hero will help her on her mission.
And so Pari sets out with Chotu on a magical journey through Rajasthan where they encounter a bunch of colourful characters.
DHANAK is an enchanting fable that reinforces the belief that life is beautiful.
