Tamil star Dhanush has begun shooting for his maiden Hollywood film, The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir, directed by Ken Scott. The film is based on “The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir who got trapped in an IKEA wardrobe” by Romain Puertolas. The screen play of the film is by Puertolas and Luc Bossi (Brio films) and it has a conglomeration of production houses from three different continents. The shoot started earlier this month and Mumbai, Brussels, Rome and Paris are the probable locations.

In a statement, Dhanush said, “So happy to be a part of this film with collaborators from 3 continents, looking forward to an extraordinary journey ahead”. Director Ken is thrilled to be collaborating with Dhanush, whom he considers highly talented and great to work with.

According to producer Luc Bossi, “The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir” is also an out of the ordinary production adventure, creating through its producers, locations and talent, a unique bridge between India, Europe and Hollywood. Its cast reunites actors from more than 15 countries and an International Indo-French-Belgian-Italian crew with a common passion and goal: Tell a universal story full of laughs and emotions.”

Starring the inimitable Dhanush in the titular role of the FAKIR, the film, as the name suggests, marks an extraordinary journey in the life of Aja aka Ajatshatru (Dhanush). After the death of his mother – the Fakir takes on a journey to track down his father – a man he never knew. The quest takes him to Paris and soon, he realizes his destination is all set to change his journey. From falling in love to brushing shoulders with a Hollywood star, to dodging hit-men and being held as a hostage in a bureaucratic war, the Fakir’s life goes hilariously awry the moment he steps into Parisian soil, despite his best intentions.
