Atrangi Re: Akshay Kumar and Sara Ali Khan pen heartfelt note as they wrap up Aanand L Rai’s film
Bankable actor Akshay Kumar has wrapped the shooting of his much talked about upcoming movie Atrangi Re. On Saturday, the 53-year-old actor shared an update on his social media accounts along with a first look photo of his character from the film. Akshay features in the avatar of a magician in the photo – wearing a signature black hat of a sorcerer, he can be seen holding the King Of Hearts card in the photo.
We can assume that Akshay plays the role of a magician in Atrangi Re but not much about his character has been revealed yet. Akshay co-stars with south star Dhanush and Sara Ali Khan in Atrangi Re. The Khiladi Kumar also hinted at the “magic” to be unfolded on screens.
“It’s the last day of Atrangi Re and I can’t wait for you’ll to experience the magic created by Aanand L Rai.” Akshay Kumar also added a Thank You note for his co-stars, “Also a big thank you to my co-stars Sara Ali Khan and Dhanush for letting me be a part of this beautiful film.”

The first schedule of the film began last March, which was stopped due to coronavirus induced nationwide lockdown in the same month. After lockdown restrictions were eased, Akshay Kumar flew to the UK for the shooting schedule of Bell Bottom, which is now complete. He then resumed work on the sets of Atrangi Re in December last year.
Sara Ali Khan also posted a long emotional post after the wrap up with a series of photographs with her costars and Atrangi Re director. She wrote,“That’s a film wrap, Ek Saal Baad. Thank you so much @aanandlrai sir for giving me this role, this film and this opportunity. But more than that thank you for your unconditional love, unwavering support, the best India darshan, delicious khana, early morning sunrise drives to location, sufi ginger water evenings, and the most memorable year with the best team.” @dhanushkraja thank you for always being helpful, motivating and inspiring. Couldn’t have asked for a better partner in this journey, and yes thank you for introducing me to your amazing music and mouth-watering varieties for south Indian food (even we could have avoided that indulgence during shoots) and thank you so much @akshaykumar sir for bringing so much love, laughter, energy, positivity on our set and sorry for stalking you for photos in all our costumes sir.”
