Dhanush, the talented actor and his elder brother, popular filmmaker Selvaraghavan, are one of the most-loved actor-director duos of the Tamil film industry. As per the latest updates, Dhanush is now all set to team up with Selvaraghavan once again, for an upcoming project. But he will not be acting in his brother's directorial venture this time.
Instead, Dhanush and Selvaraghavan are reportedly planning to direct a film together. If the reports are to be believed, the brothers are planning to direct the highly anticipated upcoming historical drama Naan Rudhran together, thus forming a new equation as a filmmaker duo. However, there is no official confirmation on this reports yet.
According to the rumour mills, Dhanush is planning to direct the present-day portions of Naan Rudhran, while Selvaraghavan will helm the flashback portions that narrates a fantasy story that happened 600 years ago. Dhanush himself will essay the lead role in the movie, which will have Telugu superstar Nagarjuna Akkineni and Aditi Rao Hydari in the other pivotal roles.
Naan Rudhran is said to be a period drama that depicts an incident that happened 600 years ago, and how it connects with the present-day life of the lead characters. Reportedly, Dhanush had initially approached his father-in-law, superstar Rajinikanth to play a pivotal role in the project. But the Annaatthe actor turned the offer due to his busy schedule.
Later, the team roped in Nagarjuna Akkineni to play that character. Even though the movie was originally announced a couple of years back, it was later shelved due to the financial crisis of the production banner Sri Thenandal Films. However, Dhanush is already in talks with the same banner and a few other popular banners of Tamil cinema, to revive the project.
