‘Why This Kolaveri Di‘ fame actor Dhanush is a heartthrob for many in the southern state of Tamilnadu. Dhanush did not step into the industry out of interest. He was forced into acting by his father Kasthuri Raja. Financially weak Kasthuri Raja cast Dhanush in his movie – Thulluvadho Ilamai. The movie became a success mainly because of the music scored by Yuvan Shankar Raja. His first big hit came with his next movie Kadhal Kondein directed by his brother Selvaraghavan. The movie perfectly showcased the skills hidden inside the actor. From that time onwards, Dhanush evolved as an actor with every movie shaping himself to precision. At the moment, he is the top actor of Kollywood.

THE MOVIE SELECTION
Dhanush is a genuine example for an actor in terms of movie selection. If you see his career spanning more than 10 years, Dhanush has touched a variety of genres and never had performed movies in the same genres continuously. It is the not the quantity of projects that an actor has in hand that matters. What matters is the quality of his projects. The success it brought to the crew and how the movie was received by the audience are important.
Dhanush’s biggest advantage is his unique acting skills. He never tries anything out of the box but gives his best shot for whatever is in the demand. Moreover, his local guy appearance without much focus on the physique makes him suitable for the character he portrays on the silver screen. His acting is so casual that his movie looks more of a reality than just a drama. Even his dressing sense that stays in limits to his character and never went beyond it.
Dhanush, by birth, is born into a family whose career is based in the film industry. Moreover, being the son of a famous director and brother of Selvaraghavan, Dhanush never let all his family’s fame go into his head. Instead he has focussed on getting a name for himselves. Also, after his marrying Aishwarya, Dhanush even became more popular because of Rajinikanth. However, nothing let his humbleness and down-to-earth nature let go off him. A person who does not take his success to his head always succeed constantly. Dhanush is a sheer example for that.
