When Rajini refused an offer from Dhanush
The ‘mama-alludu’ combo of Rajinikanth and Dhanush has not acted together in any film, though it would be a casting coup as and when it happens.
The 'mama-alludu' combo of Rajinikanth and Dhanush has not acted together in any film, though it would be a casting coup as and when it happens. With each of them busy with their own punishing schedules and film projects, it does not seem to be a possibility anytime soon.
Reports in Tamil media seem to suggest that one such opportunity cropped up when Dhanush revived his historical film project ' Naan Rudhran' recently. With a top star cast comprising Nagarjuna, Sarath Kumar, Aditi Rao Hydari etc it has already generated enough traction in the Chennai circles.
However, it is being reported that Rajinikanth was the first choice for Nagarjuna's role which could not fructify owing to the Superstar's back-to-back shooting schedules. Hence Nagarjuna was taken in and the film also boasts of a guest role from Dhanush.
