The movie is based on “The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir, who got snared in an IKEA wardrobe” by Romain Puertolas.
A truly International collaboration, The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir, directed by Ken Scott and starring Indian actor Dhanush, rolled in Mumbai this week.
The movie is based on “The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir, who got snared in an IKEA wardrobe” by Romain Puertolas. 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 pursuit leads him to Paris and shortly, he realizes his destination is entirely set to change his journey. From falling in love to brush shoulders with a Hollywood genius, to dodging hitmen and being taken as a surety in a bureaucratic war the Fakir’s life goes hilariously awry the moment he steps into Parisian soil, despite his best designs.
Talking about the movie, actor Dhanush says, “So glad to be a component of this film with partner in crimes from 3 continents, looking ahead to an extraordinary journey ahead”.
Considering the enthusiasm further, Director Ken Scott adds, “I’m super charged up to be working with Dhanush who is so gifted and great great great to exploit with.”
Other than Dhanush who shot to fame internationally with his single ‘Why this Kolaverdi’ and has been hugely appreciated in films like RAANJHANAA, SHAMITABH and more.
The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir also stars French actor Bérénice Bejo (known for the Oscar Winner “The Artist”), American actor Erin Moriarty (last seen in “Blood Father” with Mel Gibson) and Somalian-American actor Barkhad Abdi (“Captain Phillips”) amongst others.
