Dhanush has an exciting line up of projects up his sleeve and each film is riding high on expectations. Among the various projects, reports have emerged that he might soon commence work on the much-delayed film with Karthik Subbaraj.

When the project was announced a couple of years ago, it made a lot of heads turn including several filmmakers who have been waiting to work with Dhanush. The Ranjhanaa star, however, chose to work with four-film old Karthik, whose last outing was Petta with superstar Rajinikanth.

This yet-untitled film, which was rumoured to be shelved, is all set to be revived very soon.

The latest update is composer Santosh Narayanan is most likely to be signed for this project. Apparently, talks have already been initiated with the popular composer who recently met Dhanush and Karthik for a discussion and finalise everything.

While details with respect to the project are being heavily guarded, it is learnt from our trusted sources that the regular shooting will start from August. The film’s story will be set against US backdrop where it will be shot for nearly a month.

The pre-production work was completed a 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 to their other commitments.

Meanwhile, Dhanush is gearing up for the release of long delayed Gautham Menon’s Enai Noki Paayum Thota, which also stars Megha Akash and Sasikumar. He will also work on a project with director Mari Selvaraj of Pariyerum Perumal fame later this year.

From next week, Dhanush will commence shooting for his new project with director Durai Senthil Kumar.
