About Raayan

Raayan is Dhanush’s 50th film and also his second directorial after Pa Paandi in 2017. Starring Sundeep Kishan and Kalidas Jayaram also in the lead roles, the filmmakers announced the title and released the film’s first look recently. Dhanush can be seen standing in front of what seems to be a food truck. He looks directly at the camera, with a shaven head and a moustache. He is also seen in a bloodied shirt and an apron, holding a pointed object made of steel. The film will be released in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi.

Upcoming work

Dhanush was recently seen in Arun Matheswaran’s Captain Miller, which performed well at the box office and was released recently on Amazon Prime Video. The actor is currently shooting for Raayan, apart from his maiden Telugu film with director Sekhar Kammula. The yet-to-be-titled film will also star Nagarjuna, Rashmika Mandanna and Jim Sarbh in the lead roles. He recently lent his support to his ex-wife Aishwarya Rajinikanth’s directorial Lal Salaam too.
