Multifaceted star Dhanush is making a comeback to the director's chair with his much-anticipated project Raayan . He seems to have assembled a star-studded cast for his directorial comeback promising a movie which is rich in drama and showcasing cutting-edge performances.

Aparna Balamurali is also part of the all-star ensemble and the filmmakers revealed her look from the movie. In a statement, she expressed her gratitude and excitement about joining the Raayan team. In a heartfelt statement, she conveyed her admiration for Dhanush and the entire cast.

"Forever grateful to @dhanushkraja sir for giving me the opportunity to become a part of Rayan. From being a huge fan to working with you, is a dream come true! You are an inspiration, sir! It's a blessing to share the screen with Dhanush sir himself, @selvaraghavan sir, @iam__sjsuryah sir, @joinprakashraj sir, my dearest Kannan @kalidas_jayaram, my amazing co-star @sundeepkishan, and darling @dushara_vijayan," Aparna said.

The actress also expressed her joy at being part of an A.R. Rahman musical, describing it as an "extremely special feeling." She went on to thank the production house, Sun Pictures, for the opportunity and expressed heartfelt gratitude to the entire team for their constant support.

"I absolutely loved working with you all. @sreyas88 @omdop @kavyasriraam @menon_venkatesh @kenkarunaas @kiranhein and many more! I made some really good friends on this set," she added.

Dhanush's directorial comeback

Dhanush made his directorial debut in 2017 with Pa Paandi. Starring Rajkiran and Revathi, it was a feel-good movie, which received both critical and commercial success. However, his upcoming directorial venture Raayan is on the extreme end of the spectrum. Judging from the first look posters, Raayan seems to be a tale of the most violent men.

The movie's first look poster revealed Dhanush as a butcher covered in blood along with Sundeep Kishan and Kalidas Jayaram. At the moment, we have very little information about the movie's storyline or the details of Dhanush's characters.

Raayan also stars S. J. Suryah, Selvaraghavan, and Prakash Raj.

Dhanush has also directed a romantic comedy named Nilavuku En Mel Ennadi Kobam. This film is also expected to arrive in cinemas this year.
