    This is the third addition to the cast of 'D50'



    Dushara Vijayan is known for her roles in movies like the 2021 sports drama Sarpatta Parambarai and the 2022 musical-drama Natchathiram Nagargiradhu has signed on for Dhanush 's second directorial venture, which is in the early stages of pre-production under the working title 'D50'.

    She will be working alongside Vishnu Vishal and SJ Suryah. The movie is produced by Kalanithi Maran under the banner of Sun Pictures in association with Dhanush's own production company Wunderbar Films.

    This will be the second time Dhanush will be donning the director's cap after 2017s Pa Paandi. Dhanush also co-wrote the movie which starred veteran actors Rajkiran and Revathi.

    Pa Paandi followed the story of Pandian Pazhanisami(Rajkiran) a retired stuntman who goes off in search of his long-lost love Poonthendra(Revathi).

    He followed this up with Thiruchitrambalam which starred alongside Nithya Menen and was a massive critical and commercial success having grossed around 110 crores at the box office.

    His final movie of the year was the supernatural thriller movie Naane Varuvean in which he played the role of twin brothers Prabhu and Kathir. The movie was directed by Selvaraghavan and was a critical and commercial success.
