Akshay Kumar also shared his excitement on working with Rai. A Bombay Times report quoted Akshay as saying, “I am thrilled to be working with Aanand L Rai, as I have always admired the way he has showcased his stories. When he narrated the film to me, I said ‘yes’ within 10 minutes. It is a challenging character to play, but at the same time, it is such a special role that my heart just couldn’t say ‘no’ to it. I will remember it for the rest of my life.”

Calling his combination with Sara and Vhanush ‘Atrangi’, he added, “And I know that Aanand, in his special and simple way of storytelling, will only add magic to it. As I said, my heart just couldn’t let this one go.”

Meanwhile, Aanand L Rai told the daily that Dhanush and Sara’s pairing will be ‘interesting and exciting’.

Atrangi Re is likely to go on floors by March and is produced by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series, Aanand’s Colour Yellow Productions and Akshay’s Cape Of Good Films.

The film will release next year on Valentine’s Day. Interestingly, Sara’s Love Aaj Kal alongside Kartik Aaryan is also releasing this Valentine’s Day.

She is currently promoting the Imtiaz Ali directorial with her co-star.
