With his lean body and boy-next-door looks, no one had expected Dhanush to make it big with his first Bollywood release itself. But, as the National Award winning actor is a natural performer, he won hearts with his power-packed performance in Raanjhanaa. Now, many Bollywood filmmakers want to work with Dhanush and one among them is R. Balki, the director who has given films like Paa and Cheeni Kum.
Balki has already planned his next with his favourite Amitabh Bachchan, and is apparently keen to rope in Dhanush for a pivotal role in the film. Surprisingly, this is the same role for which Shahrukh Khan was considered. It’s heard that Shahrukh had even allotted his dates to the film. But it’s Dhanush who’s set to clinch the part.
