The Gen-next filmmaker, Karthik Subbaraj who is all geared up to direct Superstar Rajinikanth for the second time after ‘Petta’ in his next, has confirmed that his gangster action drama with Dhanush, is on and rumors about it having been shelved are not true. Recently Karthik opened up on the reasons for the Dhanush film getting postponed.
He said, “It’s a gangster story set entirely in New York. After Iraivi, I readied a script for Dhanush and he also agreed to be part of with Thenandal to bankroll the project. Even as I wrote the script, I wanted someone like Robert De Niro or Al Pacino from The Godfather as the powerful antagonist. A lot of tedious pre-preparation was required and I had spent a few months in the US. The budget also became big. When I came back, Thenandal was busy with Mersal and they backed out.”
He further added, ” “Now, Y Not Studios Sashi has come on board to produce and I am tweaking the story a bit and changing locations to reduce the budget.” The movie is expected to go on floors after he completes Rajini’s movie.
