The heartthrob south superstar, Dhanush is ready to begin the shooting for his next film as 'Captain Miller'. The first step of shooting started rolling with a pooja ceremony held on Wednesday (Sep 21) in Chennai. The actor has joined hands with director Arun Matheswaran for the film and the racy action drama is reported to be set in the 1980s. Dhanush will be seen in a cool new look with long hair and a thick beard. The makers confirmed that the team will be heading to Tenkasi for the major shooting of the film.
Twitter has been flooded with the videos and pictures of the ceremony. The whole star cast and director Arun Matheswaran, along with producers Sendhil Thyagarajan, Arjun Thyagarajan, G. Saravanan and Sai Siddharth, were seen greeting one other on stage. One of the most loved pictures from the night was when Arun Matheswaran and Dhanush were captured hugging each other after the Mahurat Pooja. As per a few media reports, Priyanka Arul Mohan will play the female lead while John Kokken will play the antagonist in the movie.
The movie will deal with racing and crime, and it's going to be a different genre of film for Dhanush and Arun Matheswaran.
