Hollywood filmmaker and actor Al Pacino of The Godfather series fame has reportedly been approached to play an important role in Dhanush’s forthcoming Tamil movie, which will be directed by Karthik Subbaraj. Apparently, they had initially wanted Morgan Freeman to act in it, but after that fell through, they went to Al Pacino.
However, Al Pacino was not the first choice to act in the movie and the makers had Morgan Freeman in mind for the powerful role. But as their plans failed, they decided to approach Al Pacino.
It is not the first time where the makers of a Tamil movie have approached a Hollywood star. Earlier, Arnold Schwarzenegger was offered to play the role of a villain in Shankar’s upcoming movie 2.0 aka Enthiran 2.
The makers of the film wanted a Hollywood actor. They have approached Al Pacino to play the part, and are negotiating the dates and other details. We are yet to know if he will be finalised guess a formal announcement will be made soon. Also, a major portion of the film will be shot in the US, so they can get the Hollywood star to shoot there itself,” says the source. This is the first time Karthik and Dhanush will team up for a film.
