It is confirmed: after flooring Bollywood audiences with a neat performance in his debut film Raanjhanaa, Dhanush is gearing up for his second Hindi film where he plays a dumb character.
R. Balki of Paa and Cheeni Kum would be directing the film which has Amitabh Bachchan essaying a pivotal role. Kamal Haasan’s younger dauther Akshara Haasan is all set to maker her debut as an actress in the film by pairing up opposite Dhanush.
Balki, who is known to make emotion-filled scripts with aplomb, is said to have offered a role to Dhanush which he has never done: the role of a dumb youth.
Despite his non-Hindi backdrop, Dhanush impressed critics and the audiences with his neat dialogue-delivery and emotions in Raanjhanaa, which was directed by Anand L Rai and had Dhanush pairing up opposite Sonam Kapoor.
Maestro Ilaiyaraaja is scoring the film’s music which is cinematographed by P.C. Sriram. The story is said to be another emotion-filled one which gives Dhanush a chance to stand up against the might of the legendary Amitabh Bachchan.
