Actor Dhanush was last seen on screens in the mass action entertainer Maari 2 which hit the screens under the directorial of story teller Balaji Mohan. The mass action drama failed to stand up to the expectations of the audience and as a result of which the venture turned out to be a commercially failure flick. But the actor seems to have pinned high hopes on his upcoming projects and is sure that he will bounce back to the profitable zone soon. The actor is currently gearing up for the release of his long delayed romantic thriller Ennai Nokki Payum Thotta which is directed by Gautham Vasudev Menon.
