During the interview, Rajkumar was asked if the storyline of Munnabhai Chale America and Dunki were similar as it also revolved around Circuit and Munnabhai wishing to go to America.

He further continued, "And to go to America they said ‘fir wahan hum usse baat kaise karenge, English seekhte hain (So after going to America they wondered how would they talk to him so they thought of learning English)’, so we made a trailer of learning English for a while but that was a completely fictional unreal story. Yeah, the common aspect was there those guys were learning English here also they are learning English but for absolutely different reasons, there is no other commonality."
