New Delhi: Southern actor Dhanush, who became an overnight success across the nation thanks to the song ‘Kolaveri di’, has signed his first Bollywood project ‘Raanjhnaa’.
The movie will be directed by Aanand L. Rai of ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ fame. He says he chose Dhanush for his simplicity.
“For the past six months, I’ve been looking for a simple boy to play the lead in ‘Raanjhnaa’. My requirement was a man who could look vulnerable on screen. When I saw Dhanush in the Tamil film ‘Aadukalam’.I liked him immediately. He looks very ordinary and honest, and that was the demand of the character,” Rai said in a press statement. If the grapevine is to be believed, the director had approached him for the movie before the success of ‘Kolaveri di’.
