“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.
Atrangi Re is written by Rai’s long time collaborator, Himanshu Sharma, with lyrics penned by Irshad Kamil.
The project is a joint production of Colour Yellow Productions, T-Series and Kumar’s Cape Of Good Films.
