Filmmaker Aanand L Rai is set to release his upcoming directorial Atrangi Re, featuring Akshay Kumar, Sara Ali Khan and South star Dhanush, on August 6.
The film went on floors last March before the coronavirus pandemic halted its shoot. The team of AtrangiRe resumed filming in Madurai last October and followed it up with a schedule in Delhi.

“With theatres up and running, AtrangiRe is all set for a release this year. The AR Rahman musical will be hitting the screens on August 6, 2021,” the film’s makers said in a statement.
The film, which reunites Dhanush and Rai after their 2013 critical hit Raanjhanaa, will feature Kumar in a “special role.”
Atrangi Re will be Kumar’s third release of 2021.
The 53-year-old actor will also be seen in espionage thriller Bellbottom, scheduled to release on May 28, and Yash Raj Films’ Prithviraj, which will hit the theatres this Diwali.
