Poster and teaser of Dhanush's upcoming 'The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir' is out, and it seems to indeed be an extraordinary journey. Based on a bestseller book, the English-French dramedy is directed by Ken Scott. Dhanush shared the first poster of the film on Twitter, where he is seen wearing a colourful Rajasthani headgear. He tweeted, “Here is the teaser poster of 'The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir'. My English film. It's been an extraordinary journey indeed. Hope you guys like it.”

Director Scott stated that working with actors from different backgrounds was “inspirational”. “I fell in love with the project. Working with Dhanush and other actors from so many different cultures was truly inspiring. We shot in different countries- India, Italy, France, Libya. We wanted to impact these different countries to the main character. Very simply, what I tried to do is to get the best out of each actor to find the right balance of drama and comedy.” Dhanush in the film, plays Mumbai man named Ajatashatru Lavash Patel.

“Sometimes in the story makes the movie look like a fable, so we wanted 'Fakir' to be very entertaining and adventurous,” Scott said.
