Official: Dhanush and Akshay Kumar team up for Atrangi Re
It has been a while since reports about Dhanush’s new Hindi film started emerging online. The actor is reuniting with director Aanand L Rai for a new film titled ‘Atrangi Re’. Along with Dhanush, the film also stars Akshay Kumar and Sara Ali Khan in lead roles.
Director Aanand L Rai is well known for his films like ‘Tanu Weds Manu’, ‘Tanu Weds Manu: Returns’ and ‘Zero’. It was also Rai who launched Dhanush in Bollywood with the 2013 hit flick ‘Raanjhanaa’. His new film ‘Atrangi Re’ is scripted by National award winner Himanshu Sharma.
‘Atrangi Re’ will have equal prominence to all the three lead actors – Sara Ali Khan, Akshay Kumar and Dhanush. Akshay Kumar is said to be playing a very challenging role in the film. Hrithik Roshan was the first choice for this role but he could not commit to the project as he had other commitments.
AR Rahman has been signed as the music director. T Series, Colour Yellow Productions and Cape of Good Films will be presenting the film. Shoot is scheduled to begin on March 1.
