To direct Rajini would be biggest blessing: Dhanush.
I am keen to direct Rajini sir and it will be the biggest blessing in my life”, remarked Dhanush while speaking about his gangster trilogy film Vada Chennai in Vetri Maaran’s direction. Dhanush says that Vetri Maaran had initially cast Simbu in the lead role of Anbu in Vada Chennai and asked me to portray an important character called Kumar, who appears for half an hour in the film. I openly said ‘I am not that magnanimous and turned it down then’.
“We discussed about the idea of Vada Chennai, when we did Polladhavan in 2003. But the scale of the film was huge and it had a 1,000 page script and we were not really prepared to go with it. We later did Aadukalam and once again the talk about Vada Chennai cropped up, but nothing happened,” reveals Dhanush who teams up with Vetri for the third time.
