The latest in the line of Indian actors to make their entry in Hollywood in Dhanush.
The actor is all set to make his debut in the West with "Kill Bill" actor Uma Thurman and Alexandra Daddario in "The Extraordinary Journey Of The Fakir Who Got Trapped In An Ikea Cupboard", The Times of India reported.
Directed by Marjane Satrapi, the film will see Dhanush play the role of Aja, "a conjurer from a forgotten Indian colony of artists, who is sent to Paris on a secret mission by his mother", the report states.
According to the TOI's sources, the shoot is likely to take place in India, France, Italy and Morocco in mid-2016.
Speaking about why she chose Dhanush to play the role of a magician in the movie, Marjane told TOI, "As I was watching various Indian movies, Dhanush became the most obvious choice â€” his intelligence, his killer smile, his ability to enter fully into the skin of any character he played (and I can go on and on forever) made me confident that he was the one."
The film is produced by Aditi Anand.
