Dhanush is working on the period action entertainer Captain Miller. The shooting for the film, helmed by Arun Matheswaran, is currently happening in Tenkasi. The film's star cast includes Dhanush, Priyanka Mohan, Sundeep Kishan, John Kokken and Shiva Rajkumar to name a few. Interestingly, this will be the Kannada superstar's second film in Tamil after his debut with Rajinikanth's Jailer. Dhanush is sporting long hair for his role and it looks like the film is set in the pre-independence era. Going by the BTS pictures, it looks like there will be a lot of action scenes, too.
After Captain Miller, Dhanush will also be working with popular Telugu director Sekar Kammula for his next. The film is said to be a trilingual, which will be shot simultaneously in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. The film will be bankrolled by Narayan Das K Narang, Suniel Narang and Puskur Ram Mohan Rao under their respective production houses, Sree Venkateswara Cinemas and Amigos Creations.
Dhanush was last seen in Vaathi, which marked his debut in Telugu. The film, directed by Venky Atluri, was made in Telugu as Sir. Both versions hit screens on the same date and opened to mixed reviews.
