Dhanush and filmmaker Gautham Menon have joined hands for the first time in upcoming Tamil action-thriller Enai Noki Paayum Thota, which has been on the floors for a very long time. After facing several setbacks over the course of last two years, the filmâ€™s shoot was finally wrapped up in September.
The final schedule of the film was shot in Mumbai in which actor-filmmaker Sasikumar, who plays a cameo in the film, shot for his portion. Gautham Menon took to Twitter to announce the completion of the project and also confirmed that Enai Noki Paayum Thota is gearing up for Diwali release.
However, thereâ€™s been no update on the filmâ€™s release since that announcement.
In his latest media interaction, Dhanush has revealed that the delay in the release of the film is not in his hands. He said: â€śIâ€™ve shot for the film whenever Gautham sir has asked me to come. Itâ€™s not my fault the film hasnâ€™t released yet. Itâ€™s not in my hands. As an actor, Iâ€™ve completed my duty. I donâ€™t know exactly whatâ€™s causing the filmâ€™s delay but I hope it releases soon.â€ť
One of the reasons for the long time taken to complete the project is that producer Madan, who had bankrolled Dhanush's Kodi, hadn't cleared his remuneration for a long time and the latter gave up on the project. However, after months of delay, the project finally took off at the beginning of 2017.
Megha Akash plays the leading lady and this project was supposed to mark her debut, but she had already had three releases and will next be seen in Rajinikanthâ€™s Petta.
Tipped to be a campus-based action drama, the film has music by Darbuka Siva whose identity was kept a secret for a long time. The makers promoted him as Mr X to create curiosity amongst fans.
The idea paid off as the songs were extremely well received. There were rumours that AR Rahman was the composer of the album after the phenomenal response to the first single of the album. For months, the makers dodged every speculation and maintained secrecy about the composer's name.
