Actress Megha Akash plays Dhanush's leading lady in film-maker Gautham Vasudev Menon's Tamil action thriller Yenai Nokki Paayum Thotaa.
The movie went on floors in Chennai on Monday (March 14).
"Megha has been paired with Dhanush in the film. Gautham was on the lookout for a fresh face when he heard about Megha from a friend. He saw rushes of her work from her first Tamil film and immediately brought her on board," a source from the film's unit told IANS.
Megha, who recently made her acting debut with the film Oru Pakka Kathai, also has another project under her belt. Yenai Nokki Paayum Thotaa will be her third film.
Tipped to be an actioner, the film is likely to be wrapped in two months so that Dhanush can start working on his Hollywood project.
The movie will be jointly produced by Gautham and Madan under Ondraga Entertainment.
