G Dhananjayan or GD as he is fondly known, is a very commonly known name in Tamil Cinema circles. The former head of Moser Baer Entertainment and UTV Motion Pictures South, Dhananjayan has produced and distributed a number of movies. He has also penned 4 books and is the founder of the Blue Ocean Film and Television Academy, which is one of the best film institutes in Chennai with top cinema personalities taking classes here. We now hear that GD is taking on a new avatar, this too in Cinema only!
In a new tweet, Dhananjayan has revealed that he is going to don the director's hat and helm a film. Reports state that this movie would be a crime thriller and he has been in discussions with director Stanley and 'Karundhel' Rajesh for the screenplay. Early this March, Dhananjayan received his Ph.D for his thesis on the Indian Film Industry and now holds a doctorate! He is currently bankrolling Oomai Vizhigal under his Creative Entertainers & Distributors banner.
A two time National Award winner, Dhananjayan has won it for Best Film Critic in 2017 and Best Book on Tamil Cinema, in 2015! Considered to be one of the most knowledgeable authorities on Tamil Cinema and the business behind it, GD is well known for his in-depth knowledge. It would definitely be interesting to know more about his maiden directorial venture! Galatta Media wishes G Dhananjayan all the very best and all success in his new endeavour!
