Actor Dhanush who went for a short ride in the world cinema with his supporting role in the Hollywood entertainer The Gray Man returned to Tamil cinema with his romedy drama Thiruchitrambalam which hit the screens under the directorial of film maker Mithran R Jawahar with actresses Nithya Menen, Raashi Khanna, and Priya Bhavani Shankar as female leads. The movie opened up to mixed reviews from the audience and critics alike. Now, the actor is currently busy shooting for his upcoming Tamil Telugu bilingual drama christened Vaathi. The Telugu version of the movie has been titled Sir. The action flick is written and directed by story teller Venky Atluri. The project which went on floors at the beginning of this year has reached its final leg of shooting.
Now, we have news that the production unit is planning on bringing the entertainer to the theaters during the eve of Christmas. The project which is in the final leg of shoot is set to be wrapped up soon and sent to the post production. The post production is scheduled for a period of two to three months. The production house dropped the first look poster of the entertainer on social media last month, which had actor Dhanush in a vintage look sitting on a desk and seriously writing stuff under the light of a table lamp. The first look poster got the attention of not only the fans of the actor but also the general audience. It is said that the movie is set in the backdrop of the 1980’s where actor Dhanush plays the role of Balamurugan, a tutor who fights the education mafia pushing for completely privatizing the education system.
