Dhanush’s debut Hollywood flick The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir is doing well. Recently, the star, along with the film’s team, was at the Cannes International Film Festival to launch its posters and Dhanush released the Tamil version’s poster. The film’s Tamil title is Vaazhkaiya Thedi Naanum Ponen. Interestingly, it is the first line of Dhanush’s hit number Odhungada Sangu from Velai Illa Pattadhari.

The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir is a comedy-adventure film directed by Ken Scott. The film is based on the novel penned by Romain Puertolas titled The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir Who Got Trapped in an Ikea Wardrobe. It has Dhanush playing the lead role and will be released in English, Tamil and Hindi.

Bankrolled by Luc Bossi, Aditi Anand and Saurabh Gupta, the film’s distribution will be handled by Sony Pictures. While Dhanush plays the lead role in it, the star cast also includes Bérénice Bejo, Barkhad Abdi, Erin Moriarty and Gérard Jugnot. Nicolas Errèra has composed the music for this venture with Vincent Mathias cranking the camera.

Dhanush, acknowledged as a talented actor in the Tamil film industry, began his career as hero with the 2002 release Thulluvadho Ilamai, which was directed by his father, director Kasthuri Raja. He then went on to star in several hit movies and had won several honours and awards in his long career, including the National Award for Best Actor for his role in Aadukalam. He made his debut in Bollywood with Raanjhanaa in 2013 and will be foraying into Hollywood with The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir.

Dhanush currently has a number of films needing his attention, including Vada Chennai, Maari 2 and Enai Nokki Paayum Thotta. In Maari, Dhanush played a dhoti-clad, moustache twirling local rowdy and he will return in the same getup for the sequel, which will be bankrolled by Wunderbar Films.
