This actor-director duo is a dream team
Mari Selvaraj gained huge prominence for his grating caste drama Pariyerum Perumal which stunned audiences and critics for its open narration of the horror of the caste divide in society. This time around, the director once again sets the story in the rural milieu with Dhanush playing the titular role. There is still more information to be gauged on the exact plotline of the film but going by the actor’s interesting choice of roles in the past and the director’s penchant for penetrating narratives, Karnan is touted to be an intense social drama. Dhanush having just wrapped up his shooting schedule for the film, took to social media to express his pleasure in being part of this prestigious project.
