Dhanush on attending The Gray Man premiere in the US with sons Yatra, Linga: ‘I am the coolest dad’

At The Gray Man premiere in Mumbai, the Russo brothers opened up about the possibility of a spin-off of Dhanush’s role in The Gray Man starring Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans.

Dhanush is the man of the moment as his Hollywood project, The Gray Man, directed by Russo Brothers and starring Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans, premiered at a grand event in Mumbai. Dhanush and Russo Brothers answered many interesting questions about the film at the event including the possibility of a spin-off of the Tamil actor’s role in the film.
Dhanush plays the role of a formidable assassin named Avik San in The Gray Man, based on Mark Greaney’s 2009 novel of the same name. When asked if there will be a spin-off of Avik San’s role, Dhanush said, “We did work on the back story of the character with the Russo brothers, and that is a story in itself.”
On the other hand, Russo Brothers said that they are keeping the options open, “We would love to do more work and tell more stories with our characters. We want to keep our options open, and thus do not want to talk much about the story.”
Dhanush was also asked about the reactions of his sons Yatra and Linga at the premiere and whether he felt like the coolest dad at the event, he went, “I am the coolest dad of all weekends.”
About their reactions, the Tamil star said, “They (Yatra and Lingaa) loved the film. They were so chill and so cool. It was exciting for me, but I was very nervous thinking about the red carpet. While they were so cool playing games on their mobile phones, it meant the world to me that they were by my side. There is always a first for everything and it was my first Hollywood project, and it couldn’t have gotten bigger than this. Having them next to me meant everything.”
For Dhanush, The Gray Man marks the second big international film. He played the lead in The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir (2018), which opened to a decent response. Dhanush was last seen in the Tamil film Maaran, directed by Karthick Naren. Thiruchittrambalam, Naane Varuven, and Vaathi are some of his upcoming projects.
