With Bollywood returning to work-mode after nationwide lockdown, makers of Dhanush, Sara Ali Khan and Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Atrangi Re’ have decided to resume the shooting for which they have finalized dates! The producers of the movie took their social media handle to share a new still featuring Sara and Dhanush along with a caption that shoots will start back in October.
Insiders reveal that Aanand L. Rai’s love drama will be shot in various locations across Mumbai, Delhi, and Madurai. This will be the first time when a movie would film in real locations after widespread Covid-19 and 4 months nationwide lockdown, especially when other movie shoots are restricted to the studio’s only.
“This lockdown helped me to prepare well for the upcoming schedules of ‘Atrangi Re’. I’m enthusiastic and happy to re-start the shoots with the next schedule in Madurai this October. Then another schedule is planned with Akshay in Delhi and Mumbai for the complete month, of course with every precaution for complete safety,” Rai shared.
The newly shared looks like a still from the already completed first schedule for which Sara and Dhanush shoot in Varanasi before nationwide lockdown. The film story & script is penned by Himanshu Sharma and music will be composed by AR Rahman, is scheduled for 2021 release. The movie will have Sara Ali Khan essaying double role for the first time and story plot is reportedly set in two different eras with Dhanush and Akshay paired opposite her in each era.
