The shoot of Dhanush’s next Tamil film with director Karthick Naren began on Friday with a pooja in Chennai. As per composer GV Prakash, the cast and crew first shot for a song sequence for which the team rehearsed over the last few days.

Pictures from the ceremony have gone viral on social media. The film marks the maiden collaboration of Dhanush and filmmaker Karthick Naren, who rose to fame with his debut film Dhuruvangal Pathinaaru (2016).

To be bankrolled by Sathya Jyothi films, the project is currently dubbed D 43. It also stars Malavika Mohanan, Smruti Venkat and Samuthirakani among others.

This will be Malavika’s third Tamil outing. After making her Tamil debut with Rajinikanth’s Petta (2019), she went on to star in Vijay’s upcoming Tamil film Master.

Dhanush is currently awaiting the release of the Karthik Subbaraj-directed Jagame Thandhiram (2021). The film, which marks the maiden collaboration of Dhanush and Karthik, has been predominantly shot in London apart from a few other places in the United Kingdom. 

On the completion of the project, Dhanush had tweeted: “That’s a wrap for D 40. One of the quickest films I have done. It was a pleasure to work with such a quirky, sensible and visionary filmmaker like Karthik Subbaraj. This one is going to be special.”
