Praveen Sattaru was supposed to make a film with Ram Pothineni in the lead. However, it is now certain that the film could not take off due to budgetary issues. And there is a news surfacing that the director may rope in the Tamil star and producer Dhanush for the same script.

Though the National Award winning actor is busy with a bunch of movies and also has a directorial with Nagarjuna lined up, it needs to be seen how he will be able to accommodate Praveen Sattaru’s film.

Dhanush undoubtedly has a strong fan base in the Tamil Nadu and has a sizeable amount of fans in Telangana and Andhra after the dubbed versions of his films did well there. Therefore, sources say that he may be interested in the offer.

Director Praveen Sattaru made his debut with Life Before Wedding:LBW in 2011 and has directed films such as Routine Love Story, Chandamama Kathalu, and Guntur Talkies. His last outing was with the Dr Rajashekar directorial PSV Garuda Vega 126.18M.

Soon after the release of Garuda Vega, it was announced that the director would team up with Ram Pothineni but it now looks like the project has been put in the cold storage due to finance issues. It may be mentioned here that the director has won the National Film Award for Best Feature Film in Telugu for Chandamama Kathalu in 2014.

Dhanush has a number of films needing his attention right now including the Vettrimaran directorial Vada Chennai, Gautham Menon Enai Nokki Paayum Thotta and Balaji Mohan Maari 2.

Actor Dhanush is a three-time National Award winner. He won the National Award for Best Actor for Aadukalam and the National Award for producing the Best Children's Film for Kakka Muttai and for producing the Best Feature Film in Tamil Visaaranai.
