Indian film actor and singer Dhanush, who came in the limelight post the massive success of his song KOLAVERI DI, is all set make a debut in Bollywood. B-town's latest news is that TANU WEDS MANU director Aanand L Rai has signed Tamil actor Dhanush for his upcoming film RAANJHNAA.


The director has been quoted as saying, ''For the past six months, I've been looking for a simple boy to play the lead in RAANJHNAA. My requirement was a man who could look vulnerable on screen. When I saw Dhanush in the Tamil film AADUKALAM (for which he won the National Award), I really liked him. He looks very ordinary and honest, and that was exactly the demand of the character.''

Apparently Dhanush is not well versed with Hindi, but this won't pose as a barrier for him to work in Bollywood. The actor/singer is keen to explore this part of the industry and learn the local language and culture. It seems that he is even planning to hire a trainer to learn Hindi. He is convinced that by the time the shoot gets over, he will be able to communicate fluently in Hindi.

When quizzed about the movie, the director adds, ''The film is an intense love story. Just like my film TANU WEDS MANU, the film and its characters will take you to Delhi, Punjab, Chennai, etc.''

Dhanush too is very excited about the project. Buzz is that the director had approached him for the movie before 'Kolaveri Di' happened. 'It's a big deal to get a launch like this at the beginning of my career here. Aanand's script is different from regular cinema; it's one of those 'made to make a difference' kind of films,' avers Dhanush.
