Articulate yet guarded, cheery yet serious, Dhanush has all the reasons to be on top of the world.

Three hits in a row is not a joke for this young actor, who has seen the up’s and down's of the industry.

Dhanush is just back from Bangkok, where he spent the valentine weekend with his lovely wife Aishwarya. But its back to work for the young actor as he is in Madurai on location of his new film Aadukalam with director Vetrimaran who had given him that critically acclaimed box-office hit Pollathavan.

Says Dhanush: “For me, every film or every role that I work on is special. But Aadukalam is super special to me and I would say that it is my dream project. I have always admired the directorial sense of Vetri and he has an innovative style of film making and has always attempted to explore something new”.

Exclusive First Look of Aadukalam

Aadukalam has Trisha playing the female lead with young music director GV Prakash tuning the songs. Remember that Vetrimaran spent almost a year on the screenplay, script and dialogues which has a Madurai dialect. The film is one of those rare projects which has a bounded script. Adds Dhanush: “”I have a lot of positive vibrations while going through the script and I am all excited to work on it”.

The cameraman is Vel Raj and the two crucial characters in the film are played by Sri Lankan Tamil writer and political observer V. I. S. Jayabalan who makes his screen debut along with Kishore.
