Today is a lucky day for all Dhanush fans. Not only were we bestowed with a new poster of his upcoming Hollywood debut film, The Extraordinary Journey of a Fakir, but also a one-minute teaser that gave us an idea of the magic that awaits us in the theatres on May 30 this year, when the film releases. The promo teaser opens with Dhanush introducing us to his character, Ajatashatru Lavash Patel. It’s a narrative of a boy who has grown up in a small place in Mumbai. It’s only after his mother’s death that he embarks on a journey to look for his father, which takes him on an adventurous globetrotting expedition.

Helmed by Ken Scott,the film, from one look at the teaser, appears to be colourful, adventurous and full of fun and cheerful moments. On a journey that seems nothing less than extraordinary, Dhanush encounters Berenice, Barkhad Abdi, Abel Jafri and Erin Moriarty who make the overall voyage an incredibly unforgettable experience. In fact, we can see Ken confess that the entire experience of making the film has been inspiring, particularly working with Dhanush and the other actors from the different parts of the world. He is seen explaining how he has tried his best to bring out the best in each of the characters.

For the uninitiated, The Extraordinary Journey of a Fakir is based on a novel titled The Extraordinary Journey of The Fakir who got trapped in an IKEA cupboard, written by Romain Puertolas. Yes, as surprising as it may sound, it’s a cupboard with different world stamps stuck on it. In fact, in the teaser, we can see Dhanush jump out of the cupboard in a semi nude sate. The movie poster that released earlier today, showed Dhanush sheepishly peeking out of the cupboard with a goofy expression on his face and a colourful turban on his head. After watching the teaser promo, we definitely can’t wait for summer anymore. Meanwhile, Dhanush has already started shooting for Maari 2, opposite Sai Pallavi. Buzz is that Nagarjuna has also agreed to join the cast of the film.
