Raadhika plays Dhanush’s mother in his new film with Velraj

National award winning actor Dhanush and cinematographer-turned-director Velraj, who forged hands to make Velaiyilla Pattathari, one of last year’s hit films, is coming together again in an untitled film which has Amy Jackson and Samantha getting paired up opposite Dhanush for the first time in big screen.

Raadhika Sarathkumar plays Dhanush’s mother in the film. Raadhika, who played debutant hero Srikanth’s mother in the 2002 musical hit Roja Kootam, plays the mother of a contemporary hero after a long time.

The untitled film has Anirudh Ravichander’s music again. Anirudh’s music in Velaiyilla Pattathari was a huge factor in the film’s success at the box-office last year.

The question now is who would play Dhanush’s father. It was said that Bharathiraaja, ace film-maker, might be roped in to play the role. However, it is now said that director K.S. Ravikumar, who plays cameos in all his films, might get the opportunity. The crew appears to be undecided on this issue.

Actor-director Samuthirakani excelled as Dhanush’s father in Velaiyilla Pattathari while Saranya Ponvannan, who has been specializing in mother’s roles in almost all films featuring top heroes, played Dhanush’s mother to perfection in the film.
