"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.
Dhanush shared his excitement on Facebook.
The film will follow his journey from New Delhi to Paris where he falls in love with a woman and accidentally gets deported along with a band of African refugees to the far corners of Europe against his will.
The film will also feature Bandit Queen actress Seema Biswas, Alexandra Daddario, Barkhad Abdi and Laurent Lafitte.
