After starring in filmmaker Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Love Aaj Kal’, Sara Ali Khan is set to star in another love story where the actor will be seen romancing not one but two heroes – Akshay Kumar and Dhanush.
A source close to the development told a leading publication, “While Atrangi Re is primarily a love story set in the heartland, laced with humour, the storytelling is in a zone the filmmaker has not attempted before. The screenplay follows a non-linear narrative of two romances from different timelines running in the parallel.”
Filmmaker Anand L Rai’s Atrangi Re is a cross-cultural love story set in Bihar and Madurai. While Sara Ali Khan plays a girl from Bihar, Dhanush will be seen as a guy from Madurai.
Talking about the film in a statement, Anand L Rai said, “All the three characters are funnily weird and it’s their emotional journey. I am always looking for partners who are as emotionally touched as I am with the story and all three of them are like that. Every character in this film has it’s own traits will put them in an unseen space.”
In January, Akshay Kumar took to social media to announce the film. Sharing pictures of himself with his co-stars, he wrote, “This one is really special. Presenting #AtrangiRe by @aanandlrai. An @arrahman musical. Releasing on Valentine’s 2021. Written by: #HimanshuSharma.”
Atrangi Re is slated for a Valentine’s Day release, next year.
