Aanand L Rai’s latest directorial venture, Atrangi Re, has been making waves, be it for the unique story or stellar performances by the cast. Actor Vicky Kaushal has also joined the long list of fans and celebs praising the film, and his adulation came with a charming request to the film’s director as well.

The actor took to his Instagram stories to applaud the film, calling it delightful and talking about how much he enjoyed watching it. Kaushal also commended the performances of the film’s stars Akshay Kumar, Sara Ali Khan, and Dhanush, particularly appreciating Sara for nailing the challenging role. Kaushal concluded his note of appreciation with a sweet request to director Rai, asking the latter to include the former in Rai’s next directorial venture.


And of course, the director could not help himself from responding to the request in his charming way. Rai shared Kaushal’s story after penning a reply to the actor’s request as well.

Check out how Rai reacted below.


Sara joined in this gleeful exchange as well, asking Rai to cast her along with Kaushal in the filmmaker’s next venture.


Meanwhile, Kaushal and Sara are already working on a film together, their first on-screen collaboration.

Atrangi Re revolves around the story of a young man and woman who are forced into marriage together, even though the woman loves another man. When her new husband promises to reunite the woman with her beloved, the former realises that things are not all they appear to be in the woman’s love story. The film has music composed by A. R. Rahman.

Atrangi Re is available to stream on Disney+ Hotstar.
