Dhanush's Hollywood Debut ‘The Extraordinary Journey Of The Fakir’ Sold Out At Canadian Premiere
Dhanush starrer The Extraordinary Journey Of The Fakir, which marks his Hollywood debut, has been winning applause worldwide for its incredible story and stellar performances by the lead star cast. The film, which recently premiered in Canada, was sold out in no time. Well, it seems like the Canadian audience is a fan of Dhanush’s debut Hollywood film.

The Extraordinary Journey Of The Fakir is a French English-language comedy-adventure film, directed by Ken Scott. It is based on a novel by Romain Puertolas titled The Extraordinary Journey Of The Fakir Who Got Trapped In An Ikea Wardrobe. The film released in France on May 18, 2018 and was highly acclaimed by the audience.

The film shows Dhanush playing the character of a street magician and trickster, who tricks people into believing that he possesses special magic powers and tries to swindle them.


The synopsis of the film, as listed by co-producer Little Red Car Films, is as follows:

"After his mother’s death, a young fakir from the streets of Mumbai, AJATASHATRU, leaves India for France to track down the father he never knew. From the moment he arrives in Paris, nothing goes as planned. Aja falls in love with a young American woman having an existential crisis, wakes up in a truck full of Somalian refugees headed for England, is held hostage in a bureaucratic war, sorts out the love life of a Hollywood star, gets shot at by a hitman in a Roman palace, travels by private jet, merchant ship and hot-air balloon, and becomes a rich man for the span of a few hours. As Aja finds himself helplessly shipped from Folkestone to Barcelona, and from Rome to Tripoli, what was initially supposed to be a simple visit to Paris to discover his father’s identity turns into a veritable odyssey."

On the production front, Dhanush's next release would be Superstar Rajinikanth's Kaala, directed by Kabali filmmaker Pa. Ranjith.
