Dhanush to direct Abishek Bachchan in his maiden Hindi film

Dhansh Abishek Bachchan

Thanks to his frequent interactions with his elder brother and apparently due to the fact that he has starred in 3 films under the elder sibling’s direction (Kaadhal Kondein, Puduppettai and Mayakkam Enna), actor Dhanush has apparently decided that now is the time to give vent to his long-held dream of turning a director. Unfortunately for Tamil audiences and the actor’s fans, his first directorial venture would be a Hindi film and not a Tamil film.

The actor has got rave reviews for his performance as a freelance photographer in his latest film Mayakkam Enna which paired him opposite debutant Richa Gangopadhyaya. Even songs sung by him in Mayakkam Enna as well as in his upcoming film 3 have become super-duper hits. In fact, Dhanush penned and sung the song Why this kolaveri di… in 3, which has received the ‘YouTube Gold’ award recently.

It is said that Aishwarya, who is debuting as director in 3 which has Shruti Haasan opposite her husband Dhanush, is thinking overtime as to how to shoot the video portion of the Kolaveri song as it has generated huge expectation from the fans and music-lovers. Dhanush, on the other hand, is finalizing the crew and technicians who might work with him in his debut film as director in Bollywood next year.

Reports are abuzz that Dhanush might rope in Abishek Bachchan as the hero of the film. It is also said that Velraj, who cinematographed Dhanush’s films like Paratti Engira Azhagusundaram, Polladhavan and the award-winning Aadukalam, would be working behind the camera in Dhanush’s Hindi film as well. Dhanush has reportedly asked Velraj to keep his ‘engagements’ free for 3 months starting next August.
