The duo will be joining hands for the actor’s 44th film after a gap of five years. The announcement comes on Anirudh’s birthday.
In a video, that was a little over a minute-long, montages of Anirudh’s concert in various countries were played with The Maari Swag theme music from Maari playing in the background. The montages then cut to Anirudh sitting on his terrace with a harmonium as Dhanush munches on some chips nearby. Dhanush asks him to play the instrument, and as soon as he does so, the announcement pops up – DnA is back.
Sun Pictures shared the video along with the caption: “They are BACK!”
Sharing the video, Dhanush wished “Happy Birthday” to Anirudh.
Anirudh began his musical career in 2011 with Dhanush’s 3. The two had later collaborated in movies including Velaiyilla Pattathari, Maari and Thanga Magan. However, after an alleged spat, Dhanush replaced Anirudh with Sean Roldan in Velaiyilla Pattathari 2 and Pa Paandi.
The untitled film, referred to as #D44, will be bankrolled by Sun Pictures. Reports suggest that Mithran Jawahar will be directing the film, while Dhanush will be writing the story, screenplay and dialogues. Jawahar and Dhanush have worked before on Kutty, Yaaradi Nee Mohini and Uthama Puthiran.
Dhanush is awaiting the release of Jagame Thandiram, directed by Karthik Subbaraj. He began shooting for his Hindi film Atrangi Re on Monday. Atrangi Re will star Sara Ali Khan and Akshay Kumar in the lead.
The lyrical video of Quit Pannuda from Master will be released at 6 pm during the day in honour of his birthday.
They are BACK!
