Actor John Kokken, who will be seen in Ajith's Thunivu, is the latest to join the team of Dhanush's upcoming film, Captain Miller. The actor today, shared pictures of him from the film's formal puja ceremony held in Chennai.

In the pictures, the star cast, including Dhanush, Priyanka Mohan, Sundeep Kishan, Nivedhithaa Sathish and John Kokken are seen in a traditional avatar. It is said that John is likely to play the antagonist in the film. It was only recently that the team had announced Don actress Priyanka Mohan as the leading lady and Sundeep Kishan and Nivedhithaa Sathish, too, had come on board.
The film is said to be an action adventure and Dhanush's look from the film was released earlier, where he is seen riding a bike covering his face. Captain Miller is said to be a historical drama set in the 1930s and 1940s. Though the details about Dhanush's character are yet to be revealed, it is said that the actor will play a rebel in the film. The team has gone through a year of thorough pre-production.
The film is directed by Arun Matheswaran and the director had earlier told OTTplay that he named the film Captain Miller as he liked Tom Hanks's character from Saving Private Ryan. Music is composed by GV Prakash Kumar, cinematography by Shreyas Krishna and editing by Nagooran. The film will be released in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. This is the maiden collaboration between Arun Matheswaran and Dhanush and will be bankrolled by Sathya Jyothi Films. While Arun had last helmed Selvaraghavan and Keerthy Suresh's Saani Kaayidham, Dhanush was seen in the feel-good family drama, Thiruchitrambalam, which ran to packed houses.
