Actor Dhanush, who is "excited" about his role in Iranian-French director Marjane Satrapi's The Extraordinary Journey Of The Fakir Who Got Trapped In An Ikea Cupboard, will start filming the movie from June, revealed a source.
"Dhanush will start shooting for his portion of the film from June 15. He is expected to shoot for nearly three weeks. The film will be shot in Italy, Morocco and France (apart from India)," a source close to Dhanush told IANS.
He will be sharing the screen space with Kill Bill star Uma Thurman in the film, which is a comedy-adventure tale based on Romain Puertolas's bestselling debut novel with the same name. The book came out in 2014 and has been translated into 35 languages so far.
