Dhanush has always been outspoken and easy to move with. The national award ‘best actor’, bestowed on him a few months back for his role in Vetrimaran’s Aadukalam hasn’t changed things a little bit. He’s still the same friendly, warm person to his friends, relatives and to his fans. Of late, Dhanush has been revealing a hitherto unknown side of his personality which is his ability to write lyrics.
After penning a few songs in his upcoming film Mayakkam Enna directed by elder brother Selvaraghavan, Dhanush has gone a step further by penning all the seven lyrics in the film 3. Incidentally, his wife Aishwarya is making her directorial debut with the film which has the stunner Shruti Haasan as his heroine. He also crooned the popular song Ommela Aasaidhaan…. in Selva’s Aayirthil Oruvan last year.
Insiders say that this is probably the firs time that a national-award winning actor has penned the lyrics of a film starring him. Encouraged by her father and superstar Rajinikanth, Aishwarya is making 3 with the experience of having assisted a couple of Selvaa’s films in the past as an assistant director. Newcomer Anirudh debuts in the film as music director.
The film has seven songs and three ‘theme’ music tracks which make it 10. Dhanush has penned all the seven lyrics and is said to have sung a couple of them: a solo song and a duet along with Shruti Haasan, who is also a capable singer and composer. It is reliably learnt that the music launch of the film is likely to be held in the first week of December.
