Reports are coming in that Dhanush is ready with his next Hindi flick. He is likely to star in the Hindi remake of a Maniratnam classic – Agni Natchatiram. The film will be directed by Bejoy Nambiar who previously directed Vikram in David. The film was originally cast with Vicky Kaushal and Harshvardhan Rane, however, Vicky Kaushal opted out citing date issues. The movie is to be shot in the rainy months of October and Vicky has committed to another project then. Things have turned for the better as Bejoy seems to have landed Dhanush.

The original movie released in 1988 and starred Karthick and Prabhu as warring half brothers.

Dhanush is currently busy with Vetrimaaran’s Vada Chennai and has a long lineup of impressive projects that are to follow which include his Hollywood debut and Karthik Subbaraj’s next. It should be noted that Dhanush had earlier said that he was not interested in remakes right now, considering that his last remakes Naiyandi and Maapillai were very average. Anyway official confirmation is awaited.
