Shoot begins for Dhanush-Akshay Kumar-Sara Ali Khan film Atrangi Re; Second schedule in October
Dhanush is reuniting with ‘Raanjhanaa’ director Aanand L Rai for a new Hindi film titled ‘Atrangi Re’. It is a multi-starrer that also features Akshay Kumar and Sara Ali Khan in the lead roles. Before the Covid-19 pandemic struck, Dhanush and Sara shot for a few portions in Varanasi. The second schedule will commence from October in Madurai. Following this, the team will continue shooting in Delhi and Mumbai where Akshay Kumar will be joining for a month.
‘Atrangi Re’ scripted by National award winner Himanshu Sharma will have equal prominence to all the three lead actors. 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.
