The movie also features French actress Berenice Bejo, Somalian-American actor Barkhad Abdi and American actress Erin Moriarty.
In director Scott's words, the film is a story of a young India who comes from Mumbai. "He knows nothing else but his neighbourhood."
According to Scott, working with actors from different cultural background was inspirational.
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.
