When Dhanush featured in his first movie Thulluvadho Ilamai, no one would've imagined that the average and scrawny looking boy would go on to become one of successful actors in Kollywood. But today, the same old average and scrawny looking boy is all set to concoct magic on-screen with arguably India's most respected actor that also marks the debut of Kamal Haasan's younger daughter Akshara.
After winning many hearts through his performances in Tamil cinema, Dhanush's popularity crossed many national boundaries when his song 'Why This Kolaveri Di' became an internet phenomenon and the first Tamil film song to premier on MTV India.
Post the stupendous 'Kolaveri' success, Dhanush earned himself his first straight Hindi movie which made him popular among North Indians. He then shifted his focus back to Tamil films and rightly so. For an actor who begins his career in a new industry, it is important to select his scripts with utmost precision and Dhanush is doing exactly that alright.
If everything augurs well for the VIP star in the next couple of years, then Dhanush could be staring at a magical gate with the key in his hand that could lead him to another world in which he might be recognized as a national hero.
Having won the National Film Award for Best Actor in such a short span, the Aadukalam actor is not only capable of reaching newer heights but is also proficient enough to stay there for a long period of time.
