The two actors are wearing understated casual looks and it looks like something straight out of the Sonam Kapoor and Danush starrer from 2013 which was also Danush’s breakout Bollywood hit that turned heads. This isn’t much of a surprise considering Aanand L. Rai is directing Dhanush again in Atrangi Re after Raanjhanaa.
As per reports in Mumbai Mirror, Aanand said, “During the lockdown, I got a lot of time to prep for the upcoming schedule. We will be filming outdoors but it will be a very organised shoot. We will try to wrap up in the minimum time possible.”
Atrangi Re had its first filming schedule wrap up in March this year. The shoot was held at Varanasi. Not much is known about the film’s plot except that Sara Ali Khan will be seen playing a double role as she is cast opposite both Akshay Kumar and Dhanush. This is the actress next Valentine’s Day release (if shooting wraps up as planned) after Love Aaj Kal 2020 and we all know how that went. The project was announced in January this year.
Atrangi Re is produced by T-Series, Color Yellow Productions and Cape of Good Films with music by A.R. Rahman. The film is currently scheduled for a Valentine’s Day 2021 release.
