Actor Dhanush has been visiting Mumbai frequently in the recent past. The media is agog with rumours/news that Dhanush is planning to cast Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan’s son and actor Abishek Bachchan as hero in his debut directorial project which he plans to make in Hindi. While the frequent visits are attributed as part of the film-making process, there appears to be something more than that meets the eye.
Actually, Dhanush has reportedly agreed to star in the music video to be produced by Bharatbala for music director A.R. Rahman’s Vande Mataram song. Bharatbala, who has already shot Rahman’s previous music videos, reportedly approached Kamal Haasan first to star in the music video. After Kamal refused citing date problems, Bala tried elsewhere before zeroing in on Dhanush to star in the video.
In a related development, Dhanush is said to be getting offers to sing from many foreign countries (?!) as well, thanks to the super-duper hit song Why this kolaveri di… from his yet-to-be-released film 3. The song has become so hugely popular that it is played at regular intervals at almost all the non-Tamil television channels across the country.
While Dhanush is willing to take up the singing assignments, he might be charging a fee as high as Rs.25 lakh per song, it is said. Sources close to the actor said that he had already taken advance from ‘some parties’ as well.
Isn’t a new profession which is likely to rake in millions for Dhanush?
