Filmmaker Aanand L Rai’s much-awaited film ‘Atrangi Re’ is grabbing headlines. It stars Akshay Kumar with Sara Ali Khan and South actor Dhanush. The film went on floors in March this year before the nationwide lockdown stalled normal life. While the first schedule of ‘Atrangi Re’ has already been shot in Varanasi, the makers are gearing up for the second shoot schedule from October in Madurai.

Noting down on the increasing number of coronavirus cases in the country, Aanand L Rai and the entire team decided to not resume the shoot immediately. The second schedule will be shot for three months in three different locations – Madurai, Delhi and Mumbai.
Aanand L Rai said, “During this lockdown, I’ve taken out a lot of time to prep up for the upcoming schedules of Atrangi Re. I’m really excited to start the next schedule which is planned to happen in Madurai October onwards and then with Akshay for a month in Delhi and Mumbai, with all the safety precautions of course.”
Aanand will be directing Akshay Kumar for the first time. As per reports, the superstar will be adding new hues to the film Atrangi Re for the audiences. In Akshay’s own words – “a special role that my heart just couldn’t say no to”.
AR Rahman will render soulful tune for the film as usual and the lyrics will be penned by Irshad Kamil. Presented by T-Series, Colour Yellow Productions and Cape of Good Films, ‘Atrangi Re’ is written by Himanshu Sharma.
