Dhanush goes to HollywoodJan 25, 2016 JB
National Award winner Dhanush will be featuring in a Hollywood flick with Uma Thurman and Alexandra Daddario (of San Andreas fame) in The Extraordinary Journey Of The Fakir Who Got Trapped In An Ikea Cupboard.
This film will be helmed by Iranian/French director Marjane Satrapi (of Persepolis fame). The flick will have Dhanush as Aja, a conjurer from a forgotten Indian colony of artists, who is sent to Paris on a secret mission by his mother.
On this extraordinary feat, Dhanush says, “I am very excited by this opportunity to work in a full length Hollywood film - The Extraordinary Journey Of the Fakir Who Got Trapped In The Ikea Cupboard for the first time. The director Marjane Satrapi felt I would be apt for this role and I feel there are many facets I can explore for this character. I thank my fans and media for constantly standing by me and pushing me to explore new endeavors and challenges all the time."
