Actor Dhanush on Wednesday announced that his upcoming Tamil movie Thiruchitrambalam will release in theatres on August 18.
The musical comedy-drama is written and directed by Mithran Jawahar, who previously collaborated with Dhanush for Yaaradi Nee Mohini, Kutty and Uthamaputhiran.
The 38-year-old actor shared the news of the film’s release date in a post on Twitter.
“Well it’s been a while isn’t ? ‘Thiruchitrambalam’ from August 18th. See you all in theatres,” Dhanush wrote along with the film’s official motion poster.
Thiruchitrambalam also stars Raashi Khanna, Nithya Menen, Priya Bhavani Shankar, Prakash Raj and Bharathiraja in pivotal roles. The film is produced by Kalanithi Maran under the banner of Sun Pictures.
The National Award-winning actor previously shared the first look of the film via Twitter on June 11, where he’s seen waking up suddenly on a red scooter.
The southern superstar most recently starred in Aanand L Rai’s Atrangi Re, alongside Sara Ali Khan and Akshay Kumar. He also featured in Maaran. Both the films were released on streaming service Disney+ Hotstar.
Born as Venkatesh Prabhu Kasthuri Raja, he adopted the screen name ‘Dhanush’ after being inspired by the fictional covert operation from Kuruthipunal, starring Kamal Hassan and Arjun.
In 2013, he made his Bollywood debut in the film Raanjhanaa, directed by Aanand L Rai and starring Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, Swara Bhasker, Kumud Mishra and Abhay Deol.
Dhanush is currently gearing up for his Hollywood debut with Anthony and Joe Russo-directed The Gray Man, based on the 2009 novel of the same name by Mark Greaney. The action-thriller will release on Netflix on July 22.
In the movie, Dhanush will appear alongside Chris Evans, Ryan Gosling, Ana de Armas, Jessica Henwick, Rege-Jean Page, Wagner Moura, Alfre Woodard and Billy Bob Thornton.
