Actor Dhanush recently attended the premiere of his Hollywood flick The Gray Man, co-starring Chris Evans, Ryan Gosling, and Ana De Armas in Los Angeles. In the film, Dhanush portrays an assassin by the name of Avik San in the Russo brothers' film "The Gray Man." 

On July 21, during a press conference in Mumbai, Dhanush responded to a query regarding Chris Evan's description of him as a "hot Tamil buddy" in The Gray Man.

Reacting to it, Dhanush said that it wasn't necessary but also, there was nothing wrong with it. 

"I think we were just adding more flavour and it is absolutely fine. I would appreciate if they collectively call us Indian actors, not North and South actors. The world has shrunk and the lines are fading. This is a time to come together and make it one industry, a huge industry. It will be great if we function together and make movies for everybody, not just for South or North. National films, not regional films. Every film is a national film. People watch South films, we watch North films. Every film is for everybody, especially with digital platforms. Everybody has access to watch everybody's work." 

Made under the direction of the Avengers: Endgame filmmakers Anthony and Joe Russo, this highly-anticipated project is based on the book series by Mark Greaney. This spy thriller is scheduled for an OTT release on 22nd July this year.

In the meantime, Dhanush will next appear on the big screen in the musical comedy, Thiruchitrambalam. This Mithran Jawahar directorial is set to reach the audience on the 18th of August this year.

He further has Selvaraghavan's Naane Varuven, Arun Matheshwaran's Captain Miller, and Venky Atluri's Vaathi in the making.
