Dhanush's Thiruchitrambalam had a box office performance that exceeded estimates. The film managed to secure a place in the 100 Crore club comfortably. Now, Sun NXT has picked up the romantic comedy and the film will start streaming from 12 am IST on September 23.
Thiruchitrambalam follows the love life of the titular character and how his life takes turns based on the direction of his romances. Playing the guy next door is Dhanush's forte and he didn't have to sweat much to pull off this role in the most endearing way possible. Nithya Menen plays Shobana and the film also stars Priya Bhavani Shankar and Raashi Khanna as female leads. Bharathiraja and Prakash Raj appear as supporting characters. The film is written and directed by Mithran Jawahar. Mithran Jawahar had previously directed Dhanush's Yaaradi Nee Mohini, written by Selvaraghavan.
Dhanush's Naane Varuvean is scheduled for a theatrical release in September. The exact date has not been announced but is being speculated to be a day before the release of Ponniyin Selvan 1, which releases on September 30. Naane Varuvean is written and directed by Selvaraghavan. The film marks the reunion of the celebrated combination of Yuvan, Selvaraghavan, and Dhanush. Selvaraghavan also plays a character in it, and Dhanush appears in a dual role.
Meanwhile, Dhanush's Vaathi has recently been announced to have an early December release. The actor is on a spree of back-to-back releases. However, this doesn't bring down the excitement for any of the films, as they are all quite distinct. Following a romcom, Thiruchitrambalam, Dhanush has picked up a psychological thriller, Naane Varuvean, and then a period social drama, Vaathi. Hopefully, the upcoming two films are as good as Thiruchitrambalam.
