The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir is a French English-language comedy adventure film directed by Ken Scott and starring Dhanush. It is based on a novel by Romain Puertolas titled The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir Who Got Trapped in an Ikea Wardrobe. The film was shot in four countries: India, France, Italy, and Libya.

Ajatashatru Lavash Patel, who has lived all his life in a small Mumbai neighborhood, is a street magician and trickster who makes people into believing he possesses special magic powers. After his mother’s untimely death, he sets off on a journey to find his estranged father in Paris with a fake EUR 100 note. There he meets a woman named Marie Riviere whom he initially swindles, but is quickly attracted to her personality. Aja then experiences a series of wide-ranging adventures around the world, initially in an IKEA wardrobe, then a Louis Vuitton suitcase, and a hot air balloon to Tripoli, Libya, while being pursued by Parisian taxi-driver Gustave Palourde whom he swindled out of a cab fare back in Paris and who wants to stab him. Along the way, he befriends a Sudanese man named Wiraj, an illegal immigrant whom he meets in a vegetable lorry.
