Atrangi Re Movie – Cast and Release Date
Anand L. Rai directed Atrangi Re is an upcoming musical drama film that has been scheduled to release this year on August 6. The film was previously scheduled to release on 14 February 2021 in theatres, but owing to the Covid-19 situation, a delay occurred in the film’s post-production, and the release was postponed. However, now the makers of the film have decided to release the movie worldwide on 6 August 2021.
Atrangi Re features Akshay Kumar as Arman Zafar, Dhanush as Omar Bhatt, Sara Ali Khan as Gauri/Sneha, and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub as Vyom Bharti. Sara Ali Khan is playing a double role in the film as Gauri and Sneha. The film is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Anand L. Rai, Himanshu Sharma, and Krishan Kumar. While A. R. Rahman composed the music, and Himanshu Sharma wrote the screenplay of the film.
Motion Poster officially proclaimed the film on 30 January 2020, and the shooting for Atrangi Re began on 1 March 2020, but the production was halted in the third week of March owing to the Coronavirus pandemic in India. Nonetheless, the shooting was resumed in July 2020; when Dhanush and Sara Ali started shooting their portions, Akshay Kumar joined the set in December 2020.
Akshay Kumar and Dhanush wrapped up the film at the end of December 2020, while the entire movie was wrapped up after three more months, that’s on 27 March 2021. The film follows a non-linear narrative where two romances from different timelines are running in parallel. Sara Ali Khan has a double role in the movie, and we will see her romancing with Dhanush and Akshay Kumar in two different timelines. It will be a cross-cultural love story.
If you have watched the film Raanjhanaa starring Dhanush, Atrangi Re may give you a bit of the same feeling. However, the plots of both films are different, and they are unique in their own ways.
