Having made a splash in Bollywood with Ranjhanaa and Shamitabh, Dhanush didn’t go on to cash in on his popularity. Opening up on his career and the opportunities that came his way in Bollywood, he told Times of India, “Many good scripts came my way, but I am waiting for a role that will be unique; the character should suit me and my limitations. I don't want to do a Hindi film just for the sake of doing it. Having said that, I will be doing a Bollywood film soon.”

Dhanush has already started shooting for his Hollywood debut film, The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir. Talking about the project, he said, “I got a call from the makers two-and-a-half years ago and they were confident that I would be able to pull this role off. Later, I got to know that Aditi (Anand, one of the producers) had suggested my name. She sent me the script and once I read it, I gave my nod. It's a beautiful story and I am sure that everybody will be able to relate to my character, Aja. The narrative has a lot of warmth, emotion, romance and also a certain element of fun. It's rare to get such roles.”

On being compared with the likes of Irrfan Khan, Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone who have ventured into Hollywood and proved their mark, Dhanush said, “Well, I am looking at it as an opportunity to learn more. I also want to understand filmmaking from a technical perspective. Being part of an international film is similar, yet different from working in our movies.
