Dhanush replaces Megastar Chiranjeevi with Akkineni Nagarjuna


Kollywood star Dhanush’s first directorial venture Pa Paandi was successful at the box office. A few weeks ago, it was announced that Dhanush is teaming up with Sri Thenandal Films for his second directorial venture.

There is a buzz in film industry that Dhanush wanted to bring Megastar Chiranjeevi on the board to play the important role but as  he is busy in his ongoing project Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, is not able to allot dates to Dhanush so he rejected the offer.  Later Dhanush contacted Akkineni Nagarjuna and both met in Hyderabad recently. The duo had elaborate discussions where they discussed the possibility of teaming up.  Dhanush was all praise for Nagarjuna’s acting in Oopiri, which had a wide release in Tamil too as Thozha.  Nag did not yet give his nod. If he does, it would certainly be an interesting combination.

This untitled film is touted to be a period film, in which Dhanush will play the lead role. Meanwhile, Dhanush also has Vada Chennai, Enai Noki Paayum Thota and an untitled film with Karthik Subbaraj in the pipeline.
