Dhanush has now started his next project ‘Yennai Nokki Payum Thotta’ under the direction of Gautham Vasudev Menon. The shooting was started yesterday.
The female lead role is done by Mega Akash. She has already acted in couple of films like ‘Oru Pakka Kadhai’ under Balaji Daranidharan’s direction and also in director Suseendiran’s film. Gautham Menon was in search of new face for his film so he signed her for his new project.
In addition, there is also another male lead role in this film. For this role Gautham has brought in Telugu hero Rana Daggubati of Baahubali fame. In fact, the director was first thinking to bring in any Tamil hero to work along with Dhanush, later he gave up his thought in order to avoid egos.
Now by bringing in Rana from Telugu industry, Gautham Menon has decided to release the film in Andhra also as a direct Telugu film. Yet, an official announcement of Raana’s participation in the film has not come.
