The movie will be directed by Aanand L.Rai of ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ fame. He says that he chose Dhanush for his simplicity.
Rai said in a statement that “For the past six months, I’ve been looking for a simple boy to play the lead in ‘Raanjhnaa’. My requirement was a man who could look vulnerable on screen. When I saw Dhanush in the Tamil film ‘Aadukalam’. I liked him immediately. He looks very ordinary and honest, and that was the demand of the character.”
Dhanush, who is an iconic hero Rajinikanth’s son-in-law, is not too well versed with Hindi. However, it won’t be a fence for his Bollywood career as he is intense to explore the industry and learn the local language and culture.
Dhanush said that “It’s a big deal to get a launch like this at the beginning of my career here. Aanand’s script is different from regular cinema; it’s one of those ‘made to make a difference’ kind of films.”
The actor is also maybe planning to hire a coach to learn Hindi. He is influenced that by the time the film’s shoot gets over, he will be able to communicate easily in Hindi, which will open more avenues for him.
