Fans of Dhanush have been eagerly waiting for his theatrical release for almost a year and a half. Post his last theatrical release Karnan (streaming on Amazon Prime Video), he had three continuous OTT releases. The actor's fans were a little upset recently with the lack of updates on his next outing Thiruchitrambalam.

Sun Pictures, which is bankrolling the fun-filled entertainer, surprised them by coming up with a few character promo videos. They have now announced that the film will hit the screens on August 18.

Nithya Menen, Raashi Khanna and Priya Bhavani Shankar essay female leads in the project; they play Shobana, Anusha and Ranjani respectively. Bharathiraja, Prakash Raj and Kavya Shetty are others who will be seen playing important characters in the movie. Dhanush and director Mithran Jawahar have teamed up after a decade's hiatus for Thiruchitrambalam.

Another attraction of the movie is the reunion of Dhanush and music composer Anirudh (popularly known as DnA) after the super success of Maari which was released seven years ago. The film is the third production venture of Sun Pictures this year after Etharkkum Thuninthavan and Beast (both streaming on Netflix and SunNXT).

Om Prakash and Prasanna GK have handled cinematography and editing respectively for the film. Its audio launch, teaser and trailer are expected to be out from July. Dhanush is reportedly essaying the role of a delivery boy in the movie which was wrapped up last year.

The shooting of Thiruchitrambalam was said to be completed in a short span of time. The makers have been tight-lipped about its story and characters its actors are playing in it for several months. However, a video of Dhanush and Nithya shaking legs to a peppy song from the location was leaked last year and went viral on social media.
