Dhanush, who makes his international debut with Russo Brothers' The Gray Man, revealed in a post-screening press conference in Los Angeles that he didn't know how he got cast in the film. The actor, further, added that he was super excited to learn and explore. In The Gray Man, Dhanush plays a small but pivotal role. According to reports, he will play an assassin without much dialogue. Asked how he landed the role, Dhanush said, “I have no idea how I ended up in this project.”

Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling also burst into laughter at Dhanush's response. Director duo Joe and Anthony Russo spoke about Dhanush recently on Twitter Spaces. “We are huge fans of his. It was important for us to write the character with him in mind. You can expect a new film starring his character in the lead soon.”

The Russo Brothers shared that they poured in a lot of passion and their learnings into the making of The Gray Man. “Unlike the Avengers series or the other MCU films we made, the film was not shot with green screen backdrops. We loved the challenge of shooting in incredible locations all over the world.”

Talking about Dhanush’s role, they had said, “He plays one of the top assassins of the world and has two major fight blocks in the film. Dhanush has a great camera presence and we loved seeing him perform.”

On being signed for The Gray Man, Dhanush, who awaits the release of Thiruchitrambalam, said in a statement, “Looking forward to being a part of this wonderful action experience. My sincere thanks to my dearest fans from all over the world for all the love and support you have been showing me throughout these years.”

Dhanush, who made his Hollywood debut with The Extraordinary Journey of The Fakir, currently has films like Vaathi, Naane Varuven, Captain Miller with Arun Matheswaran, and a project with Mari Selvaraj of Karnan fame, in the pipeline.
