Sharing his experience in a video, Scott said: "I fell in love with the project. Working with Dhanush and other actors from so many different cultures was truly inspiring. We shot in different countries -- India, Italy, France, Libya.

"We wanted to impact these different countries to the main character. Very simply what I tried to do is to get the best out of each actor to find the right balance of drama and comedy."

In the film, Dhanush is playing a Mumbai man named Ajatashatru Lavash Patel.

"Something in the story makes the movie look like a fable, so we wanted 'Fakir' to be very entertaining and adventurous," Scott added.
