Dhanush had teamed up for the second time with director Anand L Rai who introduced him into Bollywood with ‘Raanjhanaa’ in 2013. While Sara Ali Khan plays the female lead opposite Dhanush in ‘Atrangi Re’, Bollywood star Akshay Kumar plays a crucial role. The latest is that the film is set to hit the screen on August 6, 2021.
The story of ‘Atrangi Re‘ is written by Himanshu Sharma, and it has music scored by AR Rahman. The Bollywood romance drama has Dhanush, Akshay Kumar and Sara Ali Khan in the lead roles. Atrangi Re went on flooring in Varanasi in March 2020 and Dhanush had wrapped up the shooting for his portions in December.
Portions of the film have also been shot in Varanasi and Madurai. The team has last shot in Delhi and Agra at the Taj Mahal. Photographs of Akshay Kumar dressed as Mughal emperor Shah Jahan and standing in front of the Taj went viral earlier in December.
Meanwhile, Dhanush has travelled to the United States recently to shoot for his Hollywood film ‘The Gray Man’ directed by Russo brothers.
