Tamil actor Dhanush will soon be making his debut in Hollywood with the film The extraordinary journey of the Fakir which is being directed by Ken Scott. Dhanush will be seen playing a Fakir in the film who takes up a journey across the world and meets new people, exploring new avenues. Besides Dhanush, the film also stars Barkhad Abdi, Erin Moriarty and Abel Jafri in pivotal roles. The makers of the film have now released a teaser of the film and Dhanush seems quite impressive in it. Dhanush travels across the world including popular places like Italy and Paris, and meets new people during his trip. The teaser has a voice-over by the director Ken Scott who is seen narrating his experience of working with all actors including Dhanush. Watch the teaser of The extraordinary journey of the Fakir starring Dhanush here:
Dhanush seems quite excited about his debut in Hollywood and sources close to the actor reveal that he has worked very hard for his role in the film. “What’s great is I get to work with a great actor, Dhanush, who is a huge star in India, he’s a great actor, but also a great dancer, a great singer, he has a unique way of dancing and moving, he’s just very charming,” director Ken Scott had said recently in an interview.
The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir was initially supposed to be directed by acclaimed French filmmaker Marjane Satrapi but later went to Ken Scott for unknown reasons. Besides Dhanush, the film also stars Berenice Bejo, Barkhad Abdi, Erin Moriarty, Seema Biswas and Laurent Lafitte. Dhanush also says that it is a lot easier these days for people watch movies anywhere in the world. “The world has become smaller now. The exposure is much wider… Go to any country, city or continent, they know Bollywood films. So, it’s really nice that means everyone is watching everything,” Dhanush added further.
