Believe it or not, Scarface actor Al Pacino has been approached to be part of the as-yet-untitled Karthik Subbaraj and Dhanush movie, say sources.
Apparently, makers of the movie had initially wanted Morgan Freeman to act in it, but after that fell through, they went to Al Pacino.
If the rumors come true, it will be a big boost for the regional cinema. It is worth mentioning that director Shankar had tried to rope in the Hollywood superstar Arnold Schwarzenegger to play the main antagonist in his upcoming movie 2.0, starring Rajinikanth.
However, the director had to drop the idea due to various reasons. But Arnold attended the audio launch of Shankar’s I, it may be recalled.
We hope Dhanush-Al Pacino combination really happens and this will be a major change in Tamil cinema as casting an acclaimed Hollywood actor will help the project in both content and business factors.
