Mari Selvaraj’s Pariyerum Perumal, which chronicles caste-based issues in Tamil Nadu and features Kathir in the role of a youngster from a backward caste facing discrimination, has impressed both critics and audiences alike and has been identified as one of the most important films in recent times.
Even as the film continues to earn praise as it recently released on streaming platform Amazon Prime, actor-filmmaker Dhanush on Tuesday revealed that he finally watched the film and was blown away by it. Dhanush took to Twitter to praise the film and also announce that he will soon join hands with Mari Selvaraj for a new project.

Mari Selvaraj too confirmed the news via a tweet.
Last seen playing an accidental gangster in Vetrimaaran’s Vada Chennai, Dhanush has a really exciting lineup of projects. Apart from the two other parts of Vada Chennai which are already in the pipeline, he has projects with Ratsasan director Ramkumar and Kodi director Durai Senthil Kumar.
He also has another project with Vetrimaaran which will be based on Tamil novel 'Vekkai'.
In a recent press meet, Dhanush revealed that he will begin shooting for Vetrimaaran’s next project in December. It will be a revenge drama that traces the fight of an oppressed community against those oppressing them. The novel has been written by Poomani.
Dhanush also awaits the release of Maari 2, in which he plays a local don and the project marks his reunion with director Balaji Mohan. He also has Gautham Menon’s campus-based action thriller Enai Noki Paayum Thota, which is struggling to hit the screens due to some financial issues involving the producer.
