We already reported back in June that Tamil star hero Dhanush directorial with King Nagarjuna - a historical film is very much on. Planned at a whopping budget of 80 crores, the film was rumoured to be shelved when the producer left the project midway due to financial issues. Dhanush rewrote the script so that it can be done in a reduced budget and approached another producer who readily agreed to take the project under his wing.
Now it is known from our close sources that the movie will start once both Nagarjuna and Dhanush complete their current projects. As we know, Nag is finishing Wild Dog and Dhanush is awaiting the release of Jagame Thanthiram. After Wild Dog, Nagarjuna will join Praveen Sattaru film which is said to be a film set in military and intelligence backdrop. Dhanush also has a movie, Karnan, for Maari Selvaraj of Pariyerum Perumal fame.
As per the same sources, the movie will be launched early in the second half of 2021 and regular shoot starts in October. Meanwhile, Nag is also committed to Bollywood movie Brahmastra. A very interesting lineup of films for Tollywood Manmadhudu.
