Akshay Kumar is known in the industry for his intense work ethic but a recently released picture from the sets of Atrangi Re shows the actor in a playful mood. The actor is shooting for the film in Agra along with Sara Ali Khan. In the picture, Akshay Kumar is seen dressed as Emperor Shah Jahan. A video is also doing the rounds where we can see the actor twirling with the iconic Taj Mahal in the background.
“Because it can’t get more Atrangi than this. Not Shah Jahan- Mr Kumar it is @akshaykumar,” Khan wrote in her Instagram caption which shows Akshay Kumar on the sets of Atrangi Re.
The actor also shared a boomerang of himself twirling and captioned it: “Wah Taj”.
Atrangi Re is being directed by Aanand L Rai and stars Akshay Kumar, Sara Ali Khan and Dhanush in the lead roles. According to media reports, Khan will be appearing in a dual role. The best part? The music for the film is being composed by the legendary AR Rahman.
As of now, the film is set to release in theatres worldwide on Valentine’s Day in 2021. “I try to challenge myself with each and every film and bring something new to the table which the audiences can take back with them,” Rai told IANS in an interview.
“He is truly someone I can turn to for any kind of help. This year has been extremely hard for everyone. He has been there for me as a rock. On March 19, I was in Banaras shooting with him and returned to Mumbai the next day. Every third day during the lockdown, I’d tell him please take me back, I want to start shooting. Working with him has been a spectacular experience. I cannot wait to start our third schedule, hopefully very soon,” Khan had also said about working with the director.
