Interestingly, #D44 will mark Dhanush and music composer Anirudh Ravichander's collaboration a gap of after almost 5 years. The 'Kolaveri Di' hitmakers have earlier joined hands for Maari (2015), Thanga Magan (2015), 3 (2012) and Velaiyilla Pattathari (2014). On the other hand, director Mithran will be joining forces with Dhanush after Yaaradi Nee Mohini (2008), Kutty (2010) and Uthamaputhiran (2010).
#D44 will also feature talented actresses Raashii Khanna and Priya Bhavani Shankar. Well, with the pictures from the pooja ceremony going viral, fans are super excited and are now eagerly awaiting for the film's title announcement.
