Taking to her Instagram handle, the actress shares a handful of never-before-seen photos with her leading men from the film sets. Along with the photos, Sara also penned notes of love and gratitude to her director Aanand L Rai, Dhanush and Akshay. She also made sure to sign off with her distinct brand of wit and humour.
To her director, she wrote, “Thank you so much @aanandlrai sir for giving me this role, this film and this opportunity. But more than that thank you for your unconditional love, unwavering support, the best India darshan, delicious khana, early morning sunrise drives to location, sufi ginger water evenings, and the most memorable year with the best team.”
Sara, who will romance Dhanush for the first time on-screen, didn’t just thank the South superstar for guiding her through the film, but even for treating her to mouth-watering South Indian delicacies. “@dhanushkraja thank you for always being helpful, motivating and inspiring. Couldn’t have asked for a better partner in this journey and yes thank you for introducing me to your amazing music and mouth-watering varieties of South Indian food (even though we could’ve avoided that indulgence during shoots),” she quipped in her post.
Last, but not least, she also extended her note of love and admiration to Akshay, who will feature in an extended cameo in the film. “And thank you so much @akshaykumar sir for bringing so much love, laughter, energy and positivity on our set and sorry for stalking you for photos in all our costumes sir,” Sara wrote and signed off with a purple heart emoticon.
Akki gave fans a reason to cheer this Saturday afternoon when he dropped his intriguing look from the film. The actor featured in an outfit that prompted fans to believe that he will play the role of a magician.
While ‘Atrangi Re’ marks Akshay and Sara’s first film with Aanand L Rai, it will see Dhanush reuniting with his ‘Raanjhanaa’ director.
The film went on floors early 2020 but was halted due to the covid-19-induced lockdown. The team got back on the sets after the lockdown restrictions were eased a bit and the team managed to complete their shoot in December.
Since then, Akshay has gone on to shoot for his next film ‘Bachchan Pandey‘ while Dhanush has jetted out to the USA to shoot for his Hollywood project, ‘The Gray Man’.
