Actor-producer Dhanush will next team up with film-maker Karthik Subbaraj for a yet-untitled Tamil project, which will go on the floor later this year.
"The project has been locked. While the genre of the film is yet unknown, the regular shooting will kick-start from September," a source close to Dhanush told IANS.
Later, Dhanush himself took to his social networking page to make the announcement. "Glad to announce that I'm doing my new film with the very talented Karthick subburaj. Shoot in September. God bless," he posted.
This is the first time Dhanush will be teaming up with Subbaraj, known for critically-acclaimed films like Pizza and Jigarthanda.
Dhanush is currently shooting for Gautham Vasudev Menon-directed action-drama Yenai Nokki Paayum Thotaa. While the team has been shooting for quite some time now, they are yet to zero in on a music director.
Though reports suggested that Yuvan Shankar Raja might be roped in, sources close to the project have confirmed that talks are going on with 'Isaipuyal' AR Rahman and if everything falls in place, we might see the Mozart of Madras joining hands with Gautham for the third time in Tamil.
Dhanush will start shooting for his Hollywood project The Extraordinary Journey of The Fakir from July.
The star actor also has a gangster-based two-part film titled Vada Chennai, to be directed by National Award-winning film-maker Vetrimaaran. However, one is not sure when this project will go on the floors.
Meanwhile, Karthik Subbaraj is awaiting the release of Iraivi, his third feature film, starring Vijay Sethupathi, SJ Surya, Bobby Simha, Kamalinee Mukherjee and Anjali in important roles. The film is expected to hit the big screen in a couple of months from now.
