During a recent interaction with a leading daily, actor Dhanush—who is one of the most popular names in Tamil cinema– revealed that he will soon be producing a web series and adding a new dimension to his career. He went on to add that the series has been in the works for a while, however, he could make it this year because of ‘VIP 2’.
“We started planning for a web-series two years ago and we also started our research on it. We even planned to launch an app, but then because of VIP 2 we had to shift our focus and give all our time for this film. So we have pushed it to next year. But, it’s very much happening. We will be resuming our web series plan next year. I will be backing it, but I’m not acting in it right now. We will be expanding it region by region,” he added.
Interestingly, besides being a National award winning actor, Dhanush is also a successful director. Earlier this year, he made his directorial debut when ‘Pa Paandi’ opened to a decent response at the BO. A comedy-drama, it featured Rajkiran and Revathy in the lead. Talking about decision to try his hand at filmmaking, he said that was ‘ashamed’ of turning director so ‘late’ in his career.
“I think I am too late I should have directed a film a few years back. I feel ashamed I have not done anything and now only when I am 34, I am writing a film, which is like really late,” he added.
Well, we wish D the very best for ‘VIP 2’—which hit screens tomorrow—and hope that his web series proves to be successful. All the best!
