Dhanush is all set to play a college student in his forthcoming Kutty, produced by Gemini Film Circuit and directed by Mithran R. Jawahar.
The director and Dhanush liked the Telugu film Arya so much that they agreed to strike a deal instantaneously. Arya was a super hit in Telugu, and Dhanush is hoping that it could work wonders for him too.
According to sources, Dhanush has been given a makeover and the film is a light-hearted romantic endeavour that will have a ‘feel-good’ effect on the audience. Shriya Saran plays the female lead, her second film with Dhanush.
The director also said that Shriya has been given more scope to exhibit her acting skills and the actress is also happy to try out a never-before role.
Dhanush’s last venture was Padikkaathavan opposite Tamannaah which had a January 2009 release. His forthcoming films include his brother Selvaraghavan’s Idhu Maalai Nerathu Mayakkam alongside Andrea Jeremiah and Aadu Kalam with Vetrimaran.
