Raju Murugan has denied recent reports that he will be directing Dhanush in his next film. Speaking to us, the director said, “I have not even finished writing the script of my next film. How can I go and approach anybody without having a script in hand? I will make an official statement once everything is finalised.”

Raju Murugan debuted this year with Cuckoo, starring Attakathi Dinesh and Malavika Nair. The film opened to mostly positive reviews and managed a decent run at the box office.
