After Power Paandi, Dhanush to don director's hat again?

Actor Dhanush made his directorial debut last year with Power Paandi which starred veteran actors Rajkiran and Revathi in the lead roles. Dhanush himself appeared in the flashback portion of the film, as the younger version of Rajkiran's character. The film went on to become an hit and roved Dhanush's interest in direction.

After Power Paandi's release, the Kodi actor has been busy with his acting commitments. The actor, who has wrapped up a portion of the shoot for Vetri Maaran's Vada Chennai is currently working on Enai Noki Paayum Thota, directed by Gautham Vasudev Menon.

A couple of days back, it was announced that Dhanush is teaming up with top production house Sri Thenandal Films, who bankrolled Vijay's superhit film Mersal, for a film. The announcement came as a surprise and rumours were rife that Karthik Subbaraj or Balaji Mohan might be helming the film.

However, Dhanush, as unpredictable as he is with his film choices, decided to surprise us one more time. His project with Sri Thenandal Films will be directed by himself. A source close to the team reveals, "It is true that Dhanush is all set to helm his second directorial. The film is said to be a period film set in the pre-independent era and he will also be playing the lead role in it. Currently, the pre-production work is in process and the team is looking forward to make this a mammoth film. "

The production house is working closely with Dhanush in finalising the rest of the cast. An official announcement regarding this project is still awaited.

Meanwhile, Dhanush is expected to start shooting for Balaji Mohan's Maari 2, a sequel to the film of the same name. The shooting of Maari 2 was supposed to have commenced in November, but it has been pushed due to unknown reasons.
