Dhanush, said – “I’m so happy that the Extraordinary Journey of The Fakir is coming to India so I can share it with my fans, who inspire me to keep working hard and taking chances.”

Ken Scott, Director said – “The Extraordinary Journey Of The Fakir Who Got Trapped In An Ikea Wardrobe is a fable about chance, karma, and free will. It is a cautionary tale about a young, ambitious Indian boy that grew up in a small neighbourhood in Mumbai who ends up traveling across Europe in a journey of self-discovery.
Shooting this heartfelt comedy in India was an opportunity to work with many incredibly talented Indian actors. For me, it was a real privilege to come to set every day and see how Dhanush would bring his character to life. Dhanush is a wonderful actor, he has a light touch with the comedy, but most of all he makes the audience care.”
