Filmmaker Aanand L Rai is set to release his upcoming directorial Atrangi Re, featuring Akshay kumar, Sara Ali Khan and South star Dhanush on August 6. Last March, Aanand L Rai’s upcoming directorial went on floors in Varanasi. Last year, in October, the star cast along with the entire team has resumed the shoot of the film in Madurai and followed it up in Delhi. Now, we have got our hands on an interesting development. With theatres opening across the nation, Atrangi Re is all set for a release this year.
“With theatres up and running, Atrangi Re is all set for a release this year. The AR Rahman musical will be hitting the screens on August 6, 2021,” the film’s makers said in a statement.
The film, which reunites Dhanush and Rai after their 2013 critical hit Raanjhanaa, will feature Kumar in a “special role.”
Sharing the news of Atrangi Re release date, Taran Adarsh wrote, “AKSHAY KUMAR – DHANUSH – SARA ALI KHAN: RELEASE DATE LOCKED… #AtrangiRe – starring #AkshayKumar, #Dhanush and #SaraAliKhan – to release in *cinemas* on 6 Aug 2021… Directed by #AanandLRai… Bhushan Kumar #TSeries presentation (sic).”
Akshay Kumar began shooting for Atrangi Re in December last year. Sara Ali Khan had shared a picture with the actor from the sets and wrote, “Atrangi Re becomes more Rangeen! @akshaykumar so privileged, excited and thankful to be working with you!”
Akshay Kumar had also shared the same picture on Twitter, announcing that he is beginning the shoot of Atrangi Re. He wrote, “The joy brought by those three magic words is unmatched : Lights, Camera, Action. Begun shooting for #AtrangiRe by @aanandlrai . Need all your love and best wishes. An @arrahman musical. Written by: #HimanshuSharma.”
The film is written by Himanshu Sharma and it is produced by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series, Colour Yellow Productions and Cape of Good Films. With songs penned by Irshad Kamil, music maestro AR Rahman has composed the album for the film.
