The actor is making his Hollywood debut with the The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir
It's official: Dhanush, who's making his Hollywood debut with The Extraordinary Journey of The Fakir, is playing a street magician called Ajatashatru Oghash Rathod in the film. He was quoted saying,"it's a very positive film," and he has "a solid scope to perform."
Directed by Ken Scott, the film is based on a popular novel of the same name. Initially, France-based filmmaker, Marjane Satrapi was supposed to direct the film, but she was eventually replaced by Scott. The film has been shot in Mumbai, Paris, Brussels and Rome.
