Danush: An unlikely Bollywood star

Danush…His song Kolaveri di became a sensation.

According to Bollywood stereotype a film hero has to be fair, handsome, muscular with a thick mop of hair and, of course, with excellent dancing skills. More prominence will be given if he even distantly resembles a Hollywood heartthrob.

Actor Dhanush is a rare actor who does not fall into this superficial framework.

The people grew familiar with the face of Dhanush when the song Kolaveri di became viral on the internet in 2011. Even today, we have no idea what made that song so popular. Despite the song stereotyping girls, Dhanush carried it off with his effortless swagger.

He is the son-in-law of superstar Rajinikanth himself. And when off the screen, Dhanush turns out to be as humble as his father-in-law.

In Bollywood, we have seen Dhanush in films like Raanjhanaa opposite Sonam Kapoor and Shamitabh with Amitabh Bachchan. But as per recent reports, the southern actor will be seen in the Hindi remake of Mani Ratnam’s super hit Agni Natchathiram soon, which will be directed by Bejoy Nambiar.

This is probably the actor’s chance to leave the fans up north as impressed with his work as he has his Tamil fans. – CINEWS
