The first look of Dhanush starrer Kodi, directed by Durai Senthilkumar of Ethirneechal and Kaaki Sattai fame, will be out on September 28.

“#kodi motion poster on 28th September Wednesday 7pm #diwali2016release,” posted the national award winning actor on his microblogging page.

Dhanush will play dual roles in the film. Trisha and Anupama Parameshwaran are part of the star cast. Music for the film is by Santhosh Narayanan, cinematography by Venkatesh S and editing is by Praveen KL.

The project was first announced during August 2015, when Dhanush revealed that he would produce and act in Durai Senthilkumar’s next film, after he finished his ongoing commitments.

Dhanush revealed that the film would be a political thriller and that he would appear in dual roles as two brothers. Shriya Saran was first selected as the heroine by Dhanush but she couldn’t allot dates for the film.

Vidya Balan was first approached for negative role in the film, but did not agree to do the film. Trisha was signed as the female lead of the film. She will be dubbing in her own voice for the film. Her character has said to have some negative shades.

After unsuccessful negotiations with Rakul Preet Singh, who could not allot the dates, Shamili was signed on to portray the second leading female role. Shamili however became unwell during the shoot of the film and as a result of Dhanush’s tight schedule, the makers chose to replace her.

Madonna Sebastian was initially reported to have signed the film, before Anupama Parameshwaran was confirmed as the second lead actress.
