Sara Ali Khan is eager to return to the set now that the coronavirus’s second wave is showing signs of abating. Because of its unusual casting, the actor’s upcoming film, Atrangi Re, has been in the news for a time. Aanand L Rai directs the film, which is Sara’s, Akshay Kumar’s, and Dhanush’s debut collaboration.
Sara revealed to Indian Express, “The film is done. Working on it has been an outstanding experience. Aanand ji is known for telling great stories with very strong women, and I really hope that this can follow the same trend. I hope that we have been able to do together what he has so successfully done many times without me. He is such a loving and compassionate filmmaker. There are emotions that he brings out in people that they didn’t know they had in the first place.”
Akshay Kumar, Dhanush and Sara Ali Khan will be coming together for the first time with Atrangi Re. Talking about it, she said, “Akshay sir is one of the biggest stars in our country today, even then he is such a humble and fun loving person who gets such joyful energy on set. I am so privileged to have had the opportunity to work with him. Dhanush is an institution, a National Award-winning actor. There was a running joke on set where I used to call Dhanush ‘thalaiva’ and I used to call Akshay sir ‘thalaiva of the north’. It was just between these two thalaivas that I have tried to do some work and I hope all of our combined effort is appreciated.”
When asked about how was it working with Aanand L Rai, the Simmba actress said, “He is so clear about his characters. He also does what I believe is invaluable in a filmmaker, which is to teach restraint and motivate. I think it is important to let an actor discover their own kind of realm and their own character. But, for someone who is not formally trained like me, and only relies on honesty and conviction, it is important that he guides me and controls me and brings out things in me that even I didn’t know existed.”
