Indian celebrities are all set to grace the red carpet of the ongoing Cannes Film Festival 2018. Among many, Southern actor Dhanush has also reached Cannes International Film Festival 2018 to promote his international project, The Extraordinary Journey of The Fakir. The actor-producer is currently having a good time there along with the team of the film. Of course, also a proud moment as the film marks his debut in Hollywood.
Dhanush tweeted few pictures from Cannes 2018. The pictures see Dhanush along with Canadian director Ken Scott. He captioned: “#cannes2018 #TheExtraordinaryJourneyOfTheFakir @LRCF6204 @kenscottfakir.”
