The small screen star is slowly but surely making a name for himself on the big screen too

Sivakarthikeyan and Dhanush hit it off so well during the making of 3, that Dhanush chose the VJ-turned-actor for his maiden production venture Ethir Neechal.

The movie directed by Durai Senthilkumar, a former associate of Vetrimaran, is billed as a comedy – a genre Sivakarthikeyan has made his own.

Also in the cast is Priya Anand, who came into the spotlight with the recent hit English Vinglish.

Here we bring you a first glimpse at the movie. The stills show Sivakarthikeyan following Priya from a distance, then the duo falling in love and sharing some simple, cute, romantic moments.

Watch these first look pictures and tell us: Are you excited to watch Dhanush’s debut as a producer?
