For his next Tamil project, Dhanush will be teaming up Karthik Subbaraj, the software professional-turned-director who made his mark in Tamil cinema with his debut thriller Pizza.
Known for his unusual storylines and screenplays, Karthik drew critical and popular acclaim for his last release in 2014, Jigarthanda, a path-breaking story of the Madurai.
After Jigarthanda, the director was involved with a multistarrer produced under the Thirukumaran Entertainment banner. The film, titled Iravi, stars SJ Surya, Vijay Sethupathi, Bobby Simha, Anjali and Karunakaran and is awaiting release.
National Award-winner Dhanush has three films releasing in 2016. Thodari, directed by Prabhu Solomon and also starring Keerthy Suresh, is set for release at the end of June or early in July.
This will be followed by the political thriller Kodi, directed by Durai Senthil, which will be releasing by the middle of August.
Finally, Gautham Menon's Yennai Nokki Paayum Thotta will hit screens by the end of the year.
The actor is also expected to be travelling to Europe towards the end of May for his Hollywood debut in The Extraordinary Journey Of The Fakir Who Got Trapped In An Ikea Cupboard, directed by Marjane Satrapi.
The forthcoming Dhanush-Karthik project will start rolling from September, before which Karthik will be wrapping up the script and the pre-production work on the film.
