Dhanush then explained that Kapoor will be special to him because she was his first co-star in Bollywood. ''Sonam because she was very special, she was my first co-star in Hindi films and a guy from the south coming here, and she made me feel very comfortable and very kind to me. I am very grateful for that,” he said.
Later, during the episode, Dhanush also confessed he was ‘worried’ if Khan could play the role of Rinku in 'Atrangi Re'. “To be very honest, I was a little worried. It’s such a big role and a very difficult character to play. I asked Aanand ji, ‘How many films has she done?’ He told me 2 or 3 films, at that point of time. I was like, ‘Can she pull it off?’” he admitted. However, director Rai had reassured Dhanush.
Atrangi Re also stars Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar. The film is skipping the theatrical release and streaming directly on Disney+ Hotstar 24 December onwards.
