Vicky Kaushal, who returned from the Maldives after celebrating his wife Katrina Kaif's birthday recently, posted photos with Dhanush and the Russo brothers during the premiere of The Gray Man. Dhanush, who is making his Hollywood debut with the film, attended the event, which also saw a slew of Bollywood stars stroll the red carpet. Vicky, who attended the premiere in Mumbai, wrote on Instagram, "Last night was Gray-et with people I adore."

On his Instagram story, the Bollywood actor shared a photo with Dhanush. And, the caption read, "More power to you brother."

Further, he posted a picture with the director duo: Joe and Anthony Russo. "Welcome to India," Vicky wrote.

A video of Vicky hugging Dhanush at the screening had gone viral earlier. Others who arrived at the premiere were director Aanand L Rai, Siddharth Roy Kapur, Jacqueline Fernandez, Vishal Bhardwaj, Randeep Hooda, Babil Khan and more.

The Gray Man premiere was organised in London, as well.

Today, every film is a national film and especially with the digital platforms, people have access to watch everybody’s work, Dhanush said.

Based on the novel, The Gray Man, by Mark Greaney, the spy action thriller revolves around a freelance assassin and former CIA operative Court Gentry aka Sierra Six, played by Ryan Gosling, who is hunted across the world by Chris Evans' Lloyd Hansen and other international assassins.

Dhanush, plays Avik San, a "high-level assassin" with a strong code of conduct, the only one who could stop Six from revealing a dark agency secret.

While he has been working in the film industry for two decades delivering hits, Dhanush said filming high-octane action pieces for The Gray Man was a challenging experience. The stunts were so inventive that he had to go back to "basics" to get into the groove, he added.

"I got training for just a month-and-a-half, where they started with everything basic: How you should stand, how your fist should be, and feet should be!"

Dhanush has most of his scenes in the movie with Gosling and Ana de Armas, and the trio underwent "meticulous training" for the hand-to-hand combat sequences.

"I still remember the first day, when I had to do a kick. I had to raise my leg, but it could only come to a certain point, so they (the stunt crew) were stretching my leg to make it easy for me and then Ana came and boom! She was so good!
