Akshay Kumar will be seen in a pivotal role in Sara Ali Khan and Dhanush starrer Atrangi Re. He will be joining Sara and Dhanush on sets in mid-April.
Filmmaker Anand L. Rai announced his next film ‘Atrangi Re’ with Sara Ali Khan and south star Dhanush. The director also spiced up the star cast by bringing Khiladi Kumar on board for what was reported as a cameo role. Rubbishing away the rumors, Anand confirmed that the ‘Kesari’ star will be seen in a meaty role that will advance the narrative.
Anand and Dhanush will be coming together after their last run in 2013 with ‘Raanjhana’ that also had Sonam Kapoor in the lead role. Talking about the film written by Himanshu Sharma, Anand said, ‘”All the three characters are funnily weird and it’s their emotional journey. I am always looking for partners who are as emotionally touched as I am with the story and all three of them are like that. Every character in this film has its own traits will put them in an unseen space.”
The ‘Simbaa’ starlet and Dhanush will commence shooting for the film in Bihar from 1 March 2020. The 80-90 days schedule will be completed in Madurai which is their last shoot location. Akshay Kumar will join them once he finishes filming for Rohit Shetty’s ‘Sooryavanshi’. The stars will begin shooting in Bihar and then move to Madurai to complete the shooting schedule.
The music will be composed by none other than A.R Rahman. Anand said that since the music is a strong-pillar of the film, he wanted a music composer that could pull off the big job successfully. Colour Yellow Productions, T Series and Cape Of Good Films will be backing the project with big bucks. The film will be hitting the theatre screens of 14 February 2021.
