Dhanush to direct a big budget period film!
Dhanush is widely known for his acting skills. A National award winner, he has established himself as a huge bankable star in the industry after delivering several blockbuster films. Despite being a highly talented actor, he has tried his hand at various other departments like playback singing, lyric writing, production and screenwriting.
Last year, he turned an independent filmmaker with Power Pandi. It was a successful affair at the box office and was well received by the critics. As per latest reports, Dhanush is planning to wear the director’s hat once again, this time with a period film. The movie will be set in the pre-independence era and he himself will be playing the lead role in it.
Sri Thenandal Films, who last produced Vijay’s industrial hit Mersal, is in talks to fund Dhanush’s upcoming movie. They are also backing director Sundar C’s magnum opus Sangamithra, a Rs 250 crore project. More details regarding the film is not yet known as it is still in the early stages.
Dhanush is currently shooting for the final schedule of Gautham Menon’s long pending Enai Noki Paayum Thotta (ENPT). He recently wrapped up his portions for Vetrimaran’s gangster trilogy Vada Chennai. ENPT will be his next release, slated to hit screens early next year.
