Actor Dhanush says his Hollywood debut film The Extraordinary Journey of The Fakir, based along the popular novel of the same epithet, has been a revelation and it has aided him to learn about filmmaking.
As an actor, Dhanush has been straddling multiple industries. He says he is constantly learning.
“Irrespective of the industry I work in, I’m constantly learning from the people I work with. If Bollywood taught me a lot about production, Hollywood has been a revelation in terms of understanding filmmaking better,” Dhanush added.
In the movie, directed by Marjane Satrapi, he meets a street magician called Ajatashatru. Dhanush is thrilled about the task.
“It’s God’s grace that I landed this offer. Although I have been offered three Hollywood projects, the script of this one really convinced me to sign it. It’s a very strong role. I act as a character called Ajatashatru, a street magician,” he stated, adding it’s a very positive picture.
“I trust what you spread out comes back seeking you. It’s such a positive movie and it’s all about spreading positivity,” he appended.
With Tamil projects such as Maari 2, Enai Noki Paayum Thota and Vada Chennai in his kitty, Dhanush will commence work on his next Hindi film next year.
Dhanush was last seen in VIP 2 opposite Kajol. VIP 2, a sequel to the 2014 Tamil blockbuster Vela Illa Pattathari.
Kajol played the antagonist and her face-off scenes with Dhanush was one of the greatest highlights of the movie. “The role is something I am actually very glad about. I really can’t divulge much about the movie, as I have got strict orders from my director not to tattle about the movie,” the Dilwale actress said.
