Dhanush’s first Hollywood film, The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir’s poster was released on November 1.

The film is expected to release in summer of 2018.

A few stills from the film were also released featuring Dhanush and Berenice. In a statement released earlier, producer Luc Bossi had said, “The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir is also an out of the ordinary production adventure, creating through its producers, locations, and talent, a unique bridge between India, Europe and Hollywood. Its cast reunites actors from more than 15 countries and an international Indo-French-Belgian-Italian crew with a common passion and goal: Tell a universal story full of laughs and emotions.”
