He comes from a family of directors and the actor-singer wants to wield the megaphone soon
Tamil actor Dhanush, who is awaiting the release of his debut Hindi film Raanjhanaa, said on Tuesday that he is keen to direct soon. In all probability, he is likely to wield the megaphone by the end of 2014.
“I have been thinking of directing for quite some time now. In fact, I would have started my directorial project had Raanjhanaa not come my way. Currently, I have signed two more projects and therefore, I may likely direct a film by the end of next year,” Dhanush told reporters.
The direction bug bit him because he comes from a family of directors.
“My father (Kasthuri Raja) and brother (Selvaraghavan) are renowned directors in the industry. I can say I have been influenced by them, but I want to take things slowly,” he added.
While Dhanush made his cinematic debut through his father Kasthuri Raja’s Tamil romantic-drama Thulluvadho Ilammai, he has worked with his brother Selvaraghavan in Tamil films such as Kadhal Kondein, Yaaradi Nee Mohini and Mayakkam Enna.
In Raanjhanaa, which is directed by Aanand L Rai, Dhanush stars opposite Sonam Kapoor. Produced by Eros International, the movie releases this Friday.
