Actor Dhanush makes his Hollywood debut with the project The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir, a film based on the bestseller book named The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir Who Got Trapped in an Ikea Wardrobe by French author Romain Puertolas. Directed by Ken Scott, the movie has been in the news ever since it was announced in early 2016.
The movie’s poster was recently released by Dhanush through his Twitter page. His naughty eyes and colorful Rajasthani turban in the poster have already impressed the audience.

In The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir, Dhanush plays the role of a street magician, Ajatashatru Lavash Patel.
The teaser begins with the kid version of Dhanush’s character, who comes from a very modest background in Mumbai. In the video, Ken Scott reveals about Dhanush’s character in the movie, saying, “He knows nothing else but his neighborhood.” He also added, “Working with Dhanush and so many other actors from so many different cultures was truly inspiring.”
The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir also stars Oscar-nominated actors Berenice Bejo, Barkhad Abdi, Gérard Jugnot, Erin Moriarty and Abel Jafri. The movie is shot in India, France, Italy, England, and Libya.
In Tamil, Dhanush is currently shooting for Maari 2, the sequel to his super hit 2015 release Maari directed by Balaji Mohan.
