After receiving appreciation from several film festivals across the world, the makers of Dhanush's first international movie 'The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir' released the trailer of the movie, at an event in Mumbai. Based on the book by Romain Puértolas, The Extraordinary Journey of The Fakir, revolves around an Indian street magician's journey to Paris. Finding himself in the midst of a crazy adventure he never bargained for. The film deals with the problems of refugees across the world but despite handling a rather sensitive subject, the film seems to be filled with light-hearted humour.

The trailer opens with Dhanush trying to wriggle his way out of the hands of cops by claiming that he is a very well-known Fakir from India and can perform magic. Later, it goes on to give us a glimpse of how he grew up realising that he is poor but has this one ultimate dream to visit Paris one day.

The movie marks his Hollywood debut and interestingly, it's also the first Hollywood film with an Indian A-lister as the main lead. Before its Indian release, the movie has also managed to get an impressive collection at the box office with rave reviews, and several awards.

The trailer gives a glimpse of how the movie manages to highlight the problems faced by immigrants all over the world in a light-hearted way. The film is directed by Ken Scott and produced by Saurabh Gupta, Gulzar Singh Chahal, Aditi Anand, Samir Gupta, Luc Bossi, Jaime Mateus-Tique, Gregoire Lassalle, Genevieve Lemal and Co-Produced by Abhayanand Singh and Piyush Singh from Golden ratio who are also presenting the film.

The Extraordinary Journey of The Fakir will be releasing in India, USA, Canada, UK, Singapore, and Malaysia on June 21, 2019.
