The Kolaveri Di boy has seriously reached some new heights here. The actor, who is raved in South for his killer dialogue delivery and witty persona, will now be seen in a Hollywood flick. Son-in-law of superstar Rajnikanth, Dhanush has sprung out quite well in the open. Making his career stupendously in South and moving to Bollywood, he has now managed to bag a Hollywood flick to. Being the lead in itself is a huge thing but the film will also star Uma Thurman and that just means it’s gonna be awesome AF!
Directed by Iranian French director Marjane Satrapi, the film will also star Alexandra Daddario (of San Andreas fame). Titled The Extraordinary Journey Of The Fakir Who Got Trapped In An Ikea Cupboard, the story revolves around a conjurer, Aja, from a forgotten Indian colony of artists, who is sent to Paris on a secret mission by his mother.
Marjane is super excited for this film and the fact that the protagonist is an Indian magician who is witty, funny and full of grace. The shooting scheduled to start by mid 2016 and will take place in parts of India, France, Italy and Morocco. When asked why she chose Dhanush for this role, Marjane said, “As I was watching various Indian movies, Dhanush became the most obvious choice – his intelligence, his killer smile, his ability to enter fully into the skin of the character he played (and I can go on and on forever) made me confident that he was the one.”
