Dhanush in London, to watch Asuran in UK, meets another director

Dhanush is presently in London, shooting for his gangster film with director Karthik Subbaraj. Along with the cast and the crew of the yet untitled movie, he will watch his Friday release Asuran, directed by Vetrimaaran, in the United Kingdom.

Meanwhile, drector Mari Selvaraj, who made a smashing debut with his first film Pariyerum Perumal, is all set to join hands with Dhanush for his second directorial venture. The yet-untitled project, scheduled to go on the floors from December, will be bankrolled by Kalaipuli S Thanu under the banner of V Creations.

Mari was recently currently in London where he met Dhanush to discuss and lock the final draft of his project. Pictures from Mari’s visit have surfaced online and reports stated that Dhanush is extremely pleased with the final version of the script and he has given his nod.

Dhanush is expected to wrap up Karthik Subbaraj’s film in November and then, he will be resuming the shoot of Pattas. Directed by Dhanush’s favorite filmmaker Vetrimaaran, Asuran is all set to hit the screens on October 4.

At the audio launch function of Asuran, Dhanush made some comments against producers, which have earned their wrath against him. These are Dhanush’s words at the event: “Getting full remuneration has become a rarity these days. But in ‘Asuran’, Thanu sir settled my salary prior to the shoot. It was very helpful for me”.

At the function itself, Kalaipuli S Thanu heaped laurels on Dhanush and said, “Actors like Dhanush are helping the industry to survive. He let go crores of money for the release of his films, it’s a rare quality for an actor of his stature.”

However, hitting out at Dhanush, producer A L Azhagappan said, “Actors like Vijay and Ajith are helping producers. But those who had invested in films featuring Dhanush have failed in the business. They are not in the field anymore.”
