Known for producing critically-acclaimed Tamil films such as Kaaka Muttai and Visaaranai, Dhanush as a producer is adding more interesting projects to his credit. According to the industry grapevine, he is making inroads into Malayalam industry with a yet to be titled dark comedy with actor Tovino Thomas, who was last seen in Oru Mexican Aparatha. His first Malayalam production will be helmed by Dominic Arun of Mrithyumjayam fame.
There were reports that Dhanush might even play a cameo in the project, which goes on the floors from Saturday. However, this is apparently not true.
Dhanush, according to a source close to him, has been keenly watching films that are made in the Malayalam industry, trying to watch as many as he can. When he heard the script of this project, he supposedly felt that it would be a great launch pad in a new industry.
On the acting front, Dhanush is busy shooting for VIP 2, which is being directed by his sister-in-law Soundarya Rajinikanth. He also has some portions of Gautham Menonâ€™s Enai Nokki Paayum Thota to be shot. This year is special for the Maari actor because his directorial debut Power Paandi is slated for an April 14 release.
