The Firsrt Look of Dhanush ‘s Hollywood project is out!
Actor Dhanush is making his Hollywood debut with The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir. Ken Scott is heading the direction department for the flick. The film is based on the book “The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir who got trapped in an IKEA wardrobe”. The story is the brainchild of Romain Puertolas. The story went on the floors earlier this year. It imprints reels with scenes from Mumbai (India), Brussels (Belgium), Rome (Italy) and Paris (France) among other places. On Tuesday, the first look poster of the film hit the media featuring Dhanush, looking dapper in a blue suit and resembling nothing like a Fakir. However, in the official poster, he is featuring along with the rest of the cast of the film. Also the iconing IKEA wardrobe is visible in the backdrop.
On signing the project, Dhanush had said in a statement. “So happy to be a part of this film with collaborators from 3 continents. Looking forward to an extraordinary journey ahead”. Director Ken is on a high note to be collaborating with Dhanush. The Hollywood Director considers Dhanush highly talented and great to work with.
According to producer Luc Bossi, “The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir is also an out of the ordinary production adventure, creating through its producers, locations, and talent, a unique bridge between India, Europe and Hollywood. Its cast reunites actors from more than 15 countries.
The project houses an international Indo-French-Belgian-Italian crew with a common passion and goal. Tell a universal story full of laughs and emotions.”
Starring the inimitable Dhanush in the titular role of the Fakir, the film, as the name suggests, marks an extraordinary journey in the life of Aja aka Ajatshatru (Dhanush).
After the death of his mother – the Fakir takes on a journey to track down his father – a man he never knew. The quest takes him to Paris and soon, he realises his destination will change his journey. From falling in love to brushing shoulders with a Hollywood star, to dodging hit-men. In addition to be a hostage in a bureaucratic war, the Fakir’s life goes hilariously awry the moment he steps into Parisian soil, despite his best intentions.
