He said, “I"m doing a remake of Rajinikanth"s Maapillai. The rights were purchased by producer Hitesh Jabak two years ago and Suraaj has come up with a modern script. The shoot will start shortly.
I met Rajinikanth not as his son-in-law, but officially as Dhanush the actor and got his approval to do the remake. Who better than me to do the remake?"
In his reply to another question related to Rajini, Dhanush replied, "I do not want to be a carbon copy of Rajinikanth. When it comes to Tamil cinema, there can be only one superstar. I go through my scripts with a fine comb and look carefully at the character. I do films that suit my image..!"
Meanwhile, Dhanush celebrated his birthday quietly without any fanfare or celebrations on Tuesday (today) in Chennai.
