Dhanush and Selvaraghavan, who had previously worked together in films such as Kadhal Kondein, Pudhupettai and Mayakkam Enna, are set to join hands for the fourth time as reports have emerged that the brothers will work on a new project which will be produced by Kalaipuli S Thanu. Even as an official announcement is awaited from producer Thanu, the industry grapevine suggests that Dhanush has already given his nod and Selvaraghavan is currently working on the final draft of the script. The project will most likely take off towards the end of this year or early next year.
Thanu is currently producing Dhanushâ€™s Asuran, which is being directed by Vetrimaaran. Having completed the shooting of Asuran, a revenge-based thriller based on Tamil novel Vekkai; Dhanush has joined back the sets of Durai Senthil Kumarâ€™s next yet-untitled project. Dhanush also has a fantasy comedy with Ratsasan director Ramkumar and a film with Pariyerum Perumal director in his kitty. Therefore, the rumoured project with Selvaraghavan will only go on the floors next year.
Dhanush also has Vetrimaaranâ€™s Vada Chennai 2 in the offing. In his recent interview to Cinema Express, he confirmed already shooting 30 minutes footage of the film. â€śEveryone, who worked in the film, including me, is eagerly waiting for the project to take off. I wouldn't like to disclose how much shooting I have completed for my second directorial, but, yes, it is going on too.â€ť In the same interview, Dhanush also confirmed playing the lead in Selvaraghavanâ€™s next film.
Dhanushâ€™s first ever international film, the English â€“ French movie The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir released to positive reviews. In the movie, the National Award winning actor plays a street magician who cons people into believing that he possesses supernatural powers. His character as Ajatashatru Lavesh Patel has caught the attention of the critics in a big way.
