Dhanush has officially begun shooting for his next film, Sir / Vaathi, a Telugu - Tamil bilingual, directed by Venky Atluri of Tholi Prema and Rang De fame. Interestingly, this film will mark Dhanush's debut in Telugu cinema and it is going to be interesting to see how his launchpad turns out. Earlier today (January 7), the makers unveiled a new glimpse from the film showcasing a picture of Dhanush and the picture has already turned viral on social media. However, Dhanush's makeover for his character isn't revealed and it looks like we will have to wait for a few more weeks to witness his look.

Produced by Naga Vamsi under the banner of Sithara Entertainment in association with Fortune Four Cinemas, this film has music composed by GV Prakash Kumar who is already working on Dhanush's Maaran that is currently in the post-production stages. Kanaa fame Dinesh Krishnan is the cinematographer of this movie which has editing by Navin Nooli. The pretty and talented Samyuktha Menon will be seen playing the love interest of Dhanush and the refreshing pair is going to be one of the interesting aspects of the film. Samyuktha is yet to make a mark in Tamil cinema and Vaathi can give her the breakthrough in Kollywood.

Dhanush is expected to complete this film in a quick time and move to his other projects which are in different stages of production. According to reports, Sir / Vaathi will address the problems that are prevalent in our education system. Dhanush's next release in Tamil cinema will most likely be Maaran which is directed by Karthick Naren of Dhuruvangal Pathinaaru and Mafia fame. Maaran is touted to have a direct OTT release and an official word on the same is awaited. Dhanush's other confirmed projects include Naane Varuven, The Gray Man (International film), an untitled film each with directors Arun Matheswaran, Ram Kumar, and Mari Selvaraj.
