The trailer of Dhanush’s first Hollywood movie – The Extraordinary Journey Of The Fakir is out now. The makers unveiled the trailer of the film in Mumbai with the star cast in attendance. Dhanush visited the city especially to launch his first International film. Coming to the trailer, it is nearly 3 minutes long and opens with Dhanush aka Ajatashatru Lavash Patel, who doesn’t like to be poor, trying to wriggle his way out of the hands of cops by claiming that he is a very well-known Fakir from India and can perform magic. Later, we see glimpses of how he grew up realizing that he is poor but has this one ultimate dream to visit Paris one day.
In the second half of the trailer, we see that Ajatashatru’s story gets interesting as he lives happily in Paris and almost finds his love of life. However, his journey hits the rock bottom when he mistakenly is taken to England followed by Spain and Libya while he requests the cops to send him back to Paris.
Dhanush impresses us as a street- smart magician and seems convincing. How the actor actually fares is for us to see in the film. While we wait for The Extraordinary Journey Of The Fakir’s release, here’s the trailer of it.
Dhanush is the major highlight of The Extraordinary Journey Of The Fakir’s trailer. His street smart magic tricks and sense of humour has us impressed.
Earlier in an interview with Film Companion, speaking about his Hollywood project, Dhanush had said, “Yeah, for sure. This was really thrilling. I’m really happy; this is an extraordinary journey for me too. I’m one with a humble beginning. Started my life from the bottom. So today I felt really happy coming here, to represent Tamil cinema and Tamil Nadu in Cannes. In my life, God has always blessed me with more than what I asked for, I feel really blessed about that. More than our doing, I think these things happen by themselves and I feel that’s really important. I’m really thankful and happy for this. I think it’s the blessings and the prayers of my parents that’s guiding me through this path.”
Besides Dhanush, The Extraordinary Journey Of The Fakir stars Berenice Bejo, Barkhad Abdi, Erin Moriarty and Abel Jafri in key roles. Directed by Ken Scott, the movie releases on June 21, 2019.
