Cameraman Dinesh Krishnan opts out of Dhanush-starrer ‘Vaathi’


Cinematographer Dinesh Krishnan B, the cameraman of director Venky Atluri’s bilingual film ‘Vaathi’, starring Dhanush and Samyuktha Menon, on Tuesday announced that he wouldn’t be able to be a part of the project.

Taking to Twitter, Dinesh said: “It is unfortunate that I couldn’t be a part of Dhanush k Raja’s #Vaathi #SIR movie. Hoping to work soon with Fortune Four Cinemas, Sithara Entertainments and Venky Atluri. #covid”

While it is unclear why the cinematographer chose to opt out, the cameraman’s mention of the hashtag #covid in his tweet has led to speculation if he has had to pull out because of the virus.
