Dhanush has been working on two films simultaneously, director Vetri Maaran’s film and also Durai Senthilkumar’s next. While his film with Vetri Maaran is titled as Asuran, the title of his film with Durai was yet to be known. However, our sources have supplied us with a crucial update on this. This film is going to be titled as Pataas, meaning cracker.
Produced by Sathya Jyothi Films, this film is on the list of most expected projects of this year, due to director Durai Senthilkumar’s credibility and also Dhanush’s capabilities. Earlier on, Durai Senthilkumar had directed Dhanush in Kodi, which received moderate success. Vivek-Merwin is composing the music. Pataas will feature Sneha and the last time Dhanush had worked with the actress was in his brother’s directorial Pudhupettai. Mehreen Pirzada from Telugu will play the younger Dhanush’s love interest. Cinematographer Om Prakash is cranking the camera and this will be his fourth outing with Dhanush after Maari, Anegan and Maari 2.
Incidentally, Pataas was also the title of Kalyanram and Anil Ravipudi’s blockbuster film released in 2015.
