Call it playing a doting son-in-law or just his mere respect for superstar Rajinikanth. Actor Dhanush, who is married to Rajinikanth’s daughter Aishwarya, is set to take his personal equation with the superstar to a professional level. 

The Raanjhanaa actor is taking to production early in his career and will cast his Rajinikanth in the lead. Dhanush and his wife Aiswharya had launched their production house Wunderbar films in May this year. 

Their maiden project will be helmed by Kabali director Pa Ranjith. The actor made the announcement via a video tweet. 

Rajinikanth will commence work on this project after he winds up 2.0, the sequel to his 2010 sci-fi film Robot. 2.0, directed by Shankar, also has Akshay Kumar playing the villain.
