13 years after Pudhupettai, Dhanush and Sneha team up again

After playing gangster in Maari 2 and Vada Chennai and stealing critical acclaim for the latter, actor Dhanush now turns thief for his next flick which will be director Durai Senthilkumar. In a special treat for fans, Dhanush has a double role in the film and will be paired opposite Sneha 13 years after they appeared together in Pudhupettai.

The untitled film is said to be bankrolled by Sathya Jyothi Films, which tasted big success in their previous outing, Ajith’s Viswasam. The upcoming film has Dhanush playing dual roles, with one being a father character and another being his son. Sneha will be the love interest of father Dhanush. The actress is pairing with Dhanush 13 years after Selvaraghavan’s cult classic Pudhupettai. A hunt is on for an actress to pair opposite the younger Dhanush’s character.

Director Durai Senthilkumar and Dhanush have collaborated thrice so far – the first two movies were, Ethir Neechal (which lauched Siva Karthikeyan into films) and Kaaki Sattai (also starring SK). Both films were produced by Dhanush. The third time Durai and Dhanush came together, they released the political thriller Kodi in which Dhanush also had a dual role.

The movie will have music by Vivek – Mervin. Director Vetrimaran who will direct Asuran with Dhanush in the lead, is also penning the dialogues for Durai Senthilkumar’s movie. After completing these two movies, Dhanush will start work on his next with director Karthik Subbaraj, which is expected to go on floors from June 2019.

He will also be teaming up with directors like Mari Selvaraj and Ramkumar for his upcoming ventures.
