The first look of Dhanush from the Netflix film The Gray Man (2022), directed by brothers Joe and Anthony Russo, features the star in action mode.
The actor revealed an image of his character — Avik San — from the feature film, which is due to be released on 22 July.
The Indian actor will star alongside Hollywood stars Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans and Ana de Armas in the highly anticipated action thriller. Based on the book series The Gray Man by Mark Greaney, the film has been written by Joe Russo, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.

The Gray Man’s ensemble cast also includes Jessica Henwick, Wagner Moura, Billy Bob Thornton, Alfre Woodard, Regé-Jean Page, Julia Butters, Eme Ikwuakor and Scott Haze.
Gosling plays the title character, the shadow assassin known as the Gray Man who is a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) operative named Court Gentry. Also known as Sierra Six, Gentry was taken from a federal penitentiary and recruited by a handler, Donald Fitzroy, played by Thornton.
However, the former agent of death is being ruthlessly hunted across the world by Chris Evans’s Lloyd Hansen, Gentry’s former CIA colleague, and now his psychopathic adversary.
While it is unsure what kind of character Dhanush plays in the film, de Armas plays agent Dani Miranda, a character that wasn’t in the book, who helps the Gray Man. The Indian actor shot for the project last year.
The National award-winning actor made his international debut in The Extraordinary Journey Of The Fakir (2019). Dhanush is filming a number of south projects including Thiruchitrambalam, Naane Varuven and Vaathi/Sir.
