Aanand L Rai’s ‘Atrangi Re’ is all set to grace the silver screens. The trailer for the movie has garnered immense appreciation from the masses but alongside the movie featuring actress Sara Ali Khan, actor Akshay Kumar and Dhanush has also faced a lot of criticism.
The movie stands on the lines where the lead actress desires to be with both men starring in the movie. The character Rinku wants Akshay Kumar’s Sajjad and Dhanush’s Vishu characters, in her life. The audience had their own doubts considering if Sara was apprehensive in playing such a role in the first place.
For those who still haven’t seen the trailer, Sara’s character Rinku exclaims that she wants both the men. She is also seen telling Dhanush’s character, “ek baar, ek ladki ko dono mil jayenge toh kya aafat aa jayegi?”
During an interview and throwing the light on the character’s background, Sara Ali Khan said, “As an actor, the only thing that’s your job is to submit to your director and submit to your script.” She added, “ You have chances if I’m going to a stage function, if I’m going to an award function, if I’m posting on my Instagram, these are chances for Sara to give you Sara’s opinion. Sara is not saying ki ‘Mujhe dono chahiye,’ Rinku is saying it. And anybody who questions me about that doesn’t understand cinema. And then we don’t have to address it.”
Stating that there will always be a certain segment objecting to the role, Sara Ali Khan said, “I understand that there is a certain section of people who will feel so after (watching) the trailer and I’m excited for them to watch the movie as then they will be like ‘Arey yaar. Sh*t. Sorry, Aanandji. Sorry, Sara, we shouldn’t have said that.”
She added, “That I promise is going to happen.”
Directed by Aanand L Rai, the film stars Akshay Kumar, Dhanush, and Sara Ali Khan. Produced by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series, Rai’s Colour Yellow Productions, and Cape of Good Films, the film is set to release this Christmas Eve, December 24, in theatres.
