The young and happening sensation Priyanka Mohan has been officially announced as the leading lady of Dhanush's upcoming film, Captain Miller. The update has garnered wide attention on social media. The announcement was made by the makers this evening (September 19) on social media through a 'welcome onboard' poster and an excitingly new pair is on the cards. It is going to be refreshing to see Dhanush and Priyanka Mohan together for the first time and a delightful treat awaits fans. Captain Miller will be Priyanka Mohan's fifth film in Tamil cinema after Doctor, Etharkkum Thunindhavan, Don, and the upcoming Jayam Ravi starrer JR 30, directed by Rajesh M.

Maanagaram fame Sundeep Kishan would be playing a pivotal role in this Dhanush starrer and the rest of the cast are expected to be announced in the coming days. Captain Miller will be an intense action gangster drama set in the 1950s and this period drama is going to showcase Dhanush in an intriguingly different makeover. The star actor is prepping for the role and the pre production works are happening in full swing. The shooting of the film is expected to begin very soon and an official word on the commencement of the shoot is awaited. The film has been planned to be shot on a grand scale under the production of Sathya Jyothi Films.

GV Prakash would be scoring music for Captain Miller. Loaded with a high dose of action, the film will release in the second quarter of next year. Dhanush who recently tasted success with Thiruchitrambalam is currently awaiting the release of Naane Varuven which is slated to release in theatres on September 29. Naane Varuven is directed by Selvaraghavan and has Dhanush playing dual roles. The teaser of the film that released recently opened to favourable reviews from the fans and the film is all set to take a grand opening at the box office.
