After Madurai, the film will be shot for a month in Delhi and Mumbai with Akshay Kumar.
Dhanush is enjoying a stellar start to the new decade. The actor celbrated his birthday yesterday. Earlier this year, Sara Ali Khan announced to her 17.5 million Instagram followers that she will be sharing the big screen with not only the star actor but also Bollywood A Lister Akshay Kumar in a movie titled Atrangi De.
Captioned on a picture featuring the three, Sara Ali Khan wrote “I can’t believe my luck. My next film: ATRANGI RE Blessed to be working with @aanandlrai sir In an @arrahman musical And so thankful to have @akshaykumar sir join hands with the extremely talented and incredibly humble @dhanushkraja and myself Presented by @itsbhushankumar’s @TSeries, @cypplofficial & #capeofgoodfilms And written by Himanshu Sharma Sir CANNOT WAIT TO START And cannot wait to come Again, on Valentine’s Day 14th February 2021.”
As shown in her tweet, the film not only features one heavyweight of South Indian cinema, but two as the music will be composed by the legendary A.R. Rahman.
The movie was initially planned to be released on 2021 Valentine’s Day movie and would marks Dhanush’s return to Bollywood after Balki’s 2015 satire Shamitabh, and his third overall. After the release of Pattas, he has two hugely anticipated films releasing later this year; the Karthik Subbaraj directed fantasy film Suruli, and the Mari Selvaraj project Karnan.
