In 2019, he had three releases in the form of The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir, Vetri Maaran’s Asuran and Gautham Menon’s Enai Noki Paayum Thota. As he enjoyed the success of Asuran, he quickly moved on to his next projects which are at various stages of production. Now, it looks like the actor has signed three more films which will keep him busy for the next couple of years.

If reports are anything to go by, Dhanush will essay the lead role in the remake of his father-in-law Rajinikanth’s blockbuster hit Netrikann, which had released in 1981.
