Hollywood has finally realized that Bollywood is not just a industry but a powerhouse of talent. Priyanka Chopra and Irrfan Khan have already made their mark with their versatility and intense acting. The new superstar to join them is the ‘Raanjhanaa’ guy, Dhanush.
He will star with Uma Thurman (of ‘Kill Bill’ fame ) and Alexandra Daddario. The movie will be directed by Marjane Satrapi, who wrote and directed ‘Persepolis’.
Satrapi revealed to TOI
As I was watching various Indian movies, Dhanush became the most obvious choice — his intelligence, his killer smile, his ability to enter fully into the skin of any character he played (and I can go on and on forever) made me confident that he was the one.
In the film, Dhanush plays the role of Aja, who is a conjurer from an artists’ colony in India. He is secretly sent to Paris by his mother and that’s when the movie begins. The film is expected to be shot in India, Paris, Morocco and Italy.
Best of luck, Dhanush.
