Dhanush's Naane Varuvean gets OTT release date
The film is directed by Selvaraghavan
Naane Varuvean, the recently released Dhanush-starrer film, will be available for streaming from October 27, the platform announced.
The film stars Dhanush in dual roles. The film is a pyschological horror in which Dhanush plays brothers with contradicting personas. The film also stars Selvaraghavan in a cameo role, making this the first time the filmmaker and Dhanush acting in the same film. However, the brothers do not have a combination scene in Naane Varuvean. The film also stars Elli AvrRam, Indhuja, Yogi Babu, Prabhu, among others.

In an interview with Cinema Express earlier, Selvaraghavan said that he has co-written the film with Dhanush, and the film is based on the latter’s idea. “We collaborated for the first time; two writers working on a film is a unique experience for me,” Selvaraghavan says. Summarising his style of collaborating with Dhanush, he adds, “We tried writing different versions and then picked the best parts from both,” the filmmaker said.
The film opened to mixed reviews and marks his first collaboration with his brother Dhanush since their 2011 film Mayakkam Enna. Backed by Kalaippuli S Thanu, Naane Varuvean has music scored by Yuvan Shankar Raja, who marked his reunion with the Selvaraghavan-Dhanush combo after 16 years.
Naane Varuvean also released in Telugu as Nene Vasthunna. Geetha Arts presented the film in Telugu.
