The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir has won the audience award for Best Comedy at the Barcelona Sant-Jordi International Film Festival. In the film, Dhanush plays a street magician and trickster, who fools people into believing he possesses special magical powers and tries to swindle them.

The French-English comedy-adventure is directed by Ken Scott. The cast also includes Berenice Bejo (Academy Award nominee for The Artiste), Erin Moriarty (Blood Father), Barkhad Abdi (Captain Philips) and veteran French actor, Gerard Jugnot. The film was released in France on May 18, 2018, and held the second position for the top French Films of the year. It also received box-office success in Hong Kong and China Mainland. 

A Tamil version of The Extraordinary Journey of a Fakir, titled Vazhkaiya Thedi Naanum Poren, is scheduled for release in July.
