There are media reports doing the rounds that Petta director Karthik Subbaraj’s next is with Dhanush and it will be bankrolled by Y Not Studios. Reports also adds that Karthik wanted a Hollywood actor to play the antagonist in the film and he has approached Hollywood superstar and Academy Award-winning actor Al Pacino.
However, when asked, sources close to Y Not Studios who is said to be bankrolling the film denied the report as mere speculations. In fact, the production house hasn’t even officially announced that they are producing this Dhanush-Karthik Subbaraj’s film.
Earlier, Sri Thenandal Films agreed to produce Karthik Subbaraj-Dhanush's film but due to budget constraints, they backed out of the project. Dhanush is currently busy with Asuran, untitled film with Durai Senthil Kumar and he also has two more films with Sathya Jyothi Films.
