Akshay captioned the lovely picture as, “The joy brought by those three magic words is unmatched: Lights, Camera, Action. Begun shooting for #AtrangiRe by @aanandlrai. Need all your love and best wishes.”
Touted as AR Rahman’s musical bonanza, and written by National Award-winning screenwriter Himanshu Sharma, half the magic has already been created for the film. Atrangi Re also stars Dhanush in the lead role, which is his third Hindi film. Dhanush will also render a song for the album. Earlier he shared a picture with AR Rahman on social media and wrote, “Had a blast singing and chatting with our very own Isai puyal AR Rahman sir.” This is the first time the actor has sung for AR Rahman.
Slated to release on Valentine’s Day 2021, Atrangi Re will clash with Deepika Padukone-Siddhant Chaturvedi-Ananya Panday starrer Shakun Batra’s next film at the box office. The film is being produced under the studios T-Series, Colour Yellow Productions and Cape of Good Films.
Atrangi Re had started shooting in March this year in Varanasi, before the lockdown was announced. The film is currently in its final schedule.
