Venkatesh Prabhu Kasthuri Raja aka Dhanush predominantly works as an actor, playback singer, and director in Tamil cinema. However, he entered Bollywood with a bang with the 2013 blockbuster movie ‘Raanjhanaa’.
Well, the ‘Why this Kolaveri Di’ singer is all set to take over Hollywood AGAIN with his class act. After showcasing his commendable acting skills in the English movie ‘The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir’, he is to star in an upcoming American action thriller film ‘The Gray Man’.
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo (AKA the Russo brothers), the movie also stars several Hollywood stars namely Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jessica Henwick, Wagner Moura, Julia Butters, Regé-Jean Page, Billy Bob Thornton, and Alfre Woodard. Dhanush is off to the States to shoot for the film.
According to the Times Of India, Dhanush will probably lead the team chasing freelance assassin and former CIA operative Court Gentry played by Ryan Gosling.
The movie is based on the 2009 novel of the same name by Mark Greaney. During an interaction, Greaney said, “It is fascinating to me that they cast an Indian actor Dhanush, whom I am not familiar with. I assume he plays one of the head of the kill team that is after Court Gentry (played by Ryan Gosling).”
Amazed by Dhanush’s massive fan following on Twitter, Greaney also added, “I have some 6000 followers on Twitter and it is nothing special. Then Dhanush followed me on Twitter, the Indian actor who is going be in ‘The Gray Man’. I was like wow he is following me and he has some 9.7 million followers. He is a very big deal.”
Twitter was ecstatic on hearing this news:
Damn, Dhanush out here making money moves! He deserves that worldwide recognition!!!! pic.twitter.com/nCbEOZOxrg
