Earlier today, producer S. Sashikanth of Y Not Studios officially announced he has roped in director Karthik Subbaraj and National Award-winning actor Dhanush for his next venture in association with Reliance Entertainment. With filming set to take place entirely in the United Kingdom from August 2019, the project has been revealed to be a gangster thriller and includes Malayalam actress Aishwarya Lekshmi playing the female lead. Now, sources close to us have revealed that child artiste Ashwanth Ashokkumar is part of the film’s cast. It will be his next big role after starring in Vijay Sethupathi’s critically-acclaimed, Super Deluxe, earlier this year and the upcoming Karthi-Jyothika’s untitled film hitting screens in October.

Dhanush had initially announced he would be joining hands with director Karthik Subbaraj in 2016 after which both of them went on to be preoccupied with their other film commitments. Ever since then, there have been reports that a Hollywood actor would be roped in to be part of the film with Academy Award-winning actor Al Pacino’s name being the prominent choice. For now, that still remains just a rumor and we can expect more details to surface in the days ahead regarding the additional cast. The film already has a stellar technical team with names like Santhosh Narayanan for music, cinematography by Shreyaas Krishna, editing by Vivek Harshan, art direction by Vinoth Rajkumar, stunts by Anbariv, choreography by M Sherif and Baba Baskar, costume designs by Praveen Raja D, Sabari Girison as the chief make-up artist and sound design by Vishnu Govind and Sree Sankar.
