Dhanush signs new film with director Bharat Bala

Youth icon Dhanush’s 3 may have evoked a mixed response, but the star actor seems to be on a signing spree

The Kolaveri di actor, who recently confirmed a Hindi film, is also set to play the lead role in a multilingual movie to be directed by Bharat Bala.

The director rose to fame and made headlines when he directed Vande Mataram, the music album by ace music composer A R Rahman during the celebration of India’s golden jubilee of independence. “I met Bharat Bala when I was in New Delhi to attend the National Awards function. The script he narrated was rocking and I immediately decided to be part of it. That’s how it happened,” said Dhanush.

The buzz is that Parvathi Menon, who made her debut in Kollywood with the critically acclaimed Poo, will be leading lady of the film. However Dhanush remained tight lipped on that front. “That’s up to the director, I never interfere in the choice of heroine,” said the Kolaveri di dude. Very professional, nah?
