Actor Dhanush was recently spotted in Mumbai in his Captain Miller avatar and pictures of the actor with his beard has set the internet on fire. Now if the buzz is to be believed, the actor has signed his next in Hindi. Speculations are rife that the actor was in Mumbai for the look test of his film with Anand L Rai.

If the news is indeed true, this will be his fourth film in Hindi and his third collaboration with Anand Rai. His repertoire of Hindi films include Shamitabh, Raanjhana and Atrangi Re, out of which the Raanjhana and Atrangi are directed by Rai. Shamitabh, on the other hand, was directed by R Balki. The film had Dhanush share screen space with Amitabh Bachchan.

After the look test, the actor is back in Tamil Nadu and was recently spotted jogging with his mask on. The actor also waved at his fans on the road. The shoot for Captain Miller is currently ongoing in Madurai.

The film, directed by Arun Matheswaran is currently set in the pre-independence era and Dhanush will be sporting a retro look for the film. The star cast includes Shiva Rajkumar, Sundeep Kishan, Priyanka Mohan, John Kokken, Nivedhithaa Sathish, Edward Sonnenblick, Elango Kumaravel and Vinoth Kishan, to name a few.

 The film's producer TG Thyagarajan of Sathya Jyothi Films, had recently stated at an event that they believed that since the plot involved the British, they could take it to wider canvas, and also cash in on the popularity of Dhanush, who has now taken his plunge in Hollywood as well with The Grey Man. And hence, they decided to make it a pan-Indian project and dub the film in many languages.

Music for the film is by GV Prakash Kumar, cinematography by Siddhartha Nuni and editing by Nagooran Ramachandran.
