Speaking more about this Aanand L Rai directorial project, which also stars actors Sara Ali Khan and Dhanush, the actor adds that, “Atrangi Re has a fantastic, never-heard-before subject and storyline. For me and Anand Rai, it is critical that the most suited platform is chosen for the film.”
Akshay Kumar also stated that “good content goes hand in hand with the platform”, Kumar added, “I am as much for OTT as for theatres. What’s best for the film should decide the medium of release.”
