The movie was put on a back-burner since the team could not get Hollywood star Al Pacino’s dates.

With a lot of projects already in hand, Dhanush is all set to commence work on his film with Karthik Subbaraj.

The project, which was announced a couple of years ago, grabbed the attention of the industry including the directors who were waiting to work with Dhanush. However, the Maari star opted to work with Karthik Subbaraj, who has directed four films including his most recent Petta, starring superstar Rajinikanth.

While details of this project are heavily guarded, it is learnt that shooting will start in August. The film’s story will be set in the United States of America where it will be shot for nearly a month. The pre-production work was completed long time ago but the project couldn’t take off as the makers wanted to rope in Hollywood star Al Pacino for a pivotal role in the film. Since they couldn’t get his dates when they approached him for the first time, the project was put on the back-burner and both Dhanush and Subbaraj moved on with other commitments.

Meanwhile, Dhanush is gearing up for the release of Gautham Menon’s long-overdue Enai Nokki Paayum Thota, also starring Megha Akash and Sasikumar. He will also work on a project with director Mari Selvaraj of Pariyerum Perumal fame later this year. In November 2018, Dhanush took to Twitter and wrote, “Finally watched Pariyerum Perumal. Mind blown. The rawness and lifestyle shown is so real it feels you are there. I would like to announce director Mari Selvaraj will be doing his next film with me under V Creations. So excited to work with a talent like him.” Dhanush also has a film in the pipeline with director Ramkumar.
