Dhanush is riding high on the mega success of Asuran which recently completed its 100 days of successful run at the theatres. He is gearing up for the release of his next film, Pattas, which will be hitting the screens on January 15 for the festive occasion of Pongal. Last week, he began shooting for Karnan, his next film with director Mari Selvaraj of Pariyerum Perumal fame. He also recently wrapped up the shooting of his untitled 40th film, directed by Karthik Subbaraj and produced by Y Not Studios.


Having said all these, there seems to be a new development on Dhanush’s next Bollywood film, which is to be directed by Aanand L Rai who directed the actor’s debut film, Raanjhanaa. Dhanush had also recently confirmed his presence in this new Hindi project during the promotions of Fakir in Mumbai. Following that, the latest Bollywood reports suggest that Akshay Kumar will be seen as one of the leads in the film alongside Dhanush.

If this happens to be true, this will be the first time Dhanush and Akshay Kumar would be sharing screen space together. In addition, it is also said that Saif Ali Khan’s daughter, Sara Ali Khan will play the female lead. Aanand L Rai is most likely to produce this film under his banner, Colour Yellow Productions. We will have to wait for a few more weeks for an official word on the cast and crew of this exciting project.
