Sharing his excitement on being part of the film Akshay Kumar said,
“I am thrilled to be working with Aanand L Rai, as I have always admired the way he has showcased his stories. When he narrated the film to me, I said ‘yes’ within 10 minutes. It is a challenging character to play, but at the same time, it is such a special role that my heart just couldn’t say ‘no’ to it. I will remember it for the rest of my life.”
Talking about working with Sara Ali Khan and Dhanush, Kumar said,
“My combination with Sara and Dhanush truly makes it true to its title — Atrangi! And I know that Aanand, in his special and simple way of storytelling, will only add magic to it. As I said, my heart just couldn’t let this one go.”
Post the release of Shamitabh in 2015, Atrangi Re will mark Dhanush’s return to Bollywood.
