Akshay Kumar joins Sara Ali Khan, Dhanush on shoot of Aanand L Rai's Atrangi Re
Atrangi Re, which reunites Dhanush and Aanand L Rai after their 2013 hit Raanjhanaa, will feature Akshay Kumar in a 'special role.'
Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar, who started filming for filmmaker Aanand L Rai's upcoming Atrangi Re on Friday, says that the joy of being on a movie set can never be matched.
The film, which also stars Dhanush and Sara Ali Khan, went on floors in Varanasi in March but the shoot was halted when the coronavirus-induced nationwide lockdown was announced.
The second schedule of Atrangi Re began in October with the Simmba actor and Dhanush resuming the shoot.
Taking to Twitter, Kumar shared a picture with Khan from the film's set, announcing the start of its latest schedule.
"The joy brought by those three magic words is unmatched: Lights, Camera, Action. Begun shooting for #AtrangiRe by @aanandlrai. Need all your love and best wishes," the 53-year-old actor wrote.
