Recently, Dhanush announced his second directorial venture which will be bankrolled by Sri Thenandal Films. Now, the latest update is that Telugu actor Nagarjuna Akkineni is in talks to play a significant role in the film.
A Sify report states that Dhanush had approached Chiranjeevi for the same role. However, Chiranjeevi couldn’t allot bulk dates for the project and had backed out.
Nagarajuna, who has earlier acted in Tamil films like Ratchagan and Payanam, was last seen in the Tamil version of Oppiri, named Thozha. He shared the screen with Kaarthi in the film that was received warmly at the box office.
Actor Dhanush, who is awaiting the release of his Hollywood film, The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir, has moved on to his Tamil projects.
The film is likely to go on floor in August after Dhanush completes his acting commitments. The actor is currently shooting for Balaji Mohan’s Maari 2 in Tenkasi. While Sai Pallavi plays the female lead, Malayalam star Tovino Thomas is playing the villain in the film. Apart from Maari 2, Dhanush also has the much awaited Ennai Noki Paayum Thota with Gautham Vasudev Menon. The long-in-the-making project is expected to hit the screens soon. Dhanush also has another biggie, Vada Chennai, in the pipeline. Directed by Vetrimaran
