Dhanush confirms new film with Raanjhnaa director Aanand L Rai
The actor is set to return to Bollywood through a new collaboration with his Raanjhnaa director
Six years after Raanjhnaa, Dhanush and Aanand L Rai will be reuniting for a new film soon. Speaking at the trailer launch of his upcoming Hollywood film, The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir, Dhanush told the Mumbai press: “I will team up with Aanand L Rai in a couple of days and I'll do a Hindi film with him, which is to be announced soon.”
Released in 2013, Raanjhnaa starred Dhanush in the role of an obsessive lover in Varanasi. The film was a major box-office hit and won Dhanush a Filmfare award for Best Debut. The actor was subsequently cast in R Balki’s Shamitabh (2015), co-starring Amitabh Bachchan. We are awaiting a formal announcement from the makers regarding Dhanush’s new Bollywood venture.
Aanand L Rai’s last directorial outing was Zero. The film, starring Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma, was a box-office dud. The filmmaker is known for his regular collaboration with writer Himanshu Sharma.
