Since a while now, rumours around Akshay Kumar, Sara Ali Khan and South superstar Dhanush collaborating for an Aanand L Rai film had been doing the rounds. However, today morning comes up with a celebration as the official confirmation has been made and we indeed will see the trio in the film titled as Atrangi Re.
The makers have shared an image that witnesses the male actors, Akshay and Dhanush kissing Sara on the cheeks. While the handsome hunks don a sleek look with different shades of grey, Sara, on the other hand, looks classic in her yellow suit, jhumkas, and a bindi. But we wonder if that’s a hint to her look in the film?
Meanwhile, Akshay Kumar confirming the news, made an official statement that read, “I am thrilled to be working with Aanand L Rai, as I have always admired the way he has showcased his stories. When he narrated the film to me, I said ‘yes’ within 10 minutes. It is a challenging character to play, but at the same time, it is such a special role that my heart just couldn’t say ‘no’ to it. I will remember it for the rest of my life. My combination with Sara and Dhanush truly makes it true to its title — Atrangi! And I know that Aanand, in his special and simple way of storytelling, will only add magic to it. As I said, my heart just couldn’t let this one go.”
Director Aanand L Rai too shared his excitement in a conversation with Mumbai Mirror as he said, “It takes a secure actor like Akshay to do such a role. He has been pushing the envelope and is always up for challenges.” About casting Sara and Dhanush together for the first time, he added, “Their pairing is interesting and exciting. Fans will love the freshness these two will bring on the big screen.”
Atrangi Re will be presented by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series, Colours Yellow Production along with Akshay Kumar’s Cape Of Good Films. Written by Himanshu Sharma, the music will be backed by the legendary musician AR Rahman.
Atrangi Re will go on floors on March 1st, 2020.
