Mumbai: Actor Dhanush, who will soon make his Hollywood debut with ‘The Extraordinary Journey Of The Fakir’, shared the teaser and a poster of the film.
Based on a bestseller book ‘The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir Who Got Trapped in an Ikea Wardrobe’, the film is an English-French comedy-drama directed by Ken Scott.
In the first look of the movie which has been shared by Dhanush on his Twitter handle, he is seen wearing a colourful Rajasthani headgear.
“Here is the teaser poster of ‘The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir’. My first English film. It’s been an extraordinary journey indeed. Hope you guys like it,” tweeted Dhanush.
The film is a story of young boy, who comes from a very small part of Mumbai. He is an innocent kid who knows nothing but his neighbors. He lands up in Paris when he grows up.
Sharing his experience in a video, director Scott said, “I fell in love with the project. Working with Dhanush and other actors from so many different cultures was truly inspiring. We shot in different countries — India, Italy, France, Libya.
“We wanted to impact these different countries to the main character. Very simply what I tried to do is to get the best out of each actor to find the right balance of drama and comedy,” he said.
“Something in the story makes the movie look like a fable, so we wanted ‘Fakir’ to be very entertaining and adventurous,” Scott added.
‘The Extraordinary Journey Of The Fakir’ is scheduled to release on May 30, 2018.The movie also stars French actress Berenice Bejo, Somalian-American actor Barkhad Abdi and American actress Erin Moriarty.
