Dhanush’s decision to compete with Mani Ratnam’s Ponniyin Selvan 1 (which is set to release on September 30) has raised many eyebrows. However, it will be a double treat for fans as a battalion of stars will appear on screen next weekend.
Naane Varuven, directed by Dhanush’s brother Selvaraghavan, marks their fourth collaboration (excluding Thulluvatho Illamai). The brothers have so far made iconic films like Pudhupettai and Kadhal Konadein, which has created a lot of expectations from Naane Varuven.
Dhanush plays a dual role in the film and going by the trailer, the actor plays both the protagonist and the antagonist. Apart from Dhanush, the film has Elli AvrRam, Indhuja, Prabhu and Yogi Babu in supporting roles. Yuvan Shankar Raja has composed music for the film.
Dhanush has had a great year so far with the success of his Hollywood debut The Gray Man and his latest outing Thiruchitramabalam. He returns as Avik San in the Russo Brothers’ sequel to The Gray Man. Dhanush also has Vaathi, his first Tamil-Telugu bilingual. Vaathi is the title Sir in Telugu.
