Dhanush leaves for the US with family for his Hollywood film

Pictures of Dhanush waiting at the airport last night have gone viral. The actor is heading to the US to shoot for his Hollywood film, directed by Anthony and Joe Russo (of Avengers fame). Now, we have learnt that this will be a working vacation of sorts for the star, who has also taken his family with him.

A source says, “Dhanush has been working round the clock for the past few months and hadn’t even taken a break to spend time with his family. So, he decided to mix work and pleasure, and has taken wife Aishwaryaa and their two kids along. The four of them left Chennai early morning, around 2am – they will be reaching Dubai first and then take a connecting flight to the US. Aishwarya, Yatra and Linga are expected to be there for a few weeks, before heading back to Chennai.”

Dhanush will be sharing screen space with Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans, among others, in the Hollywood film. The source adds, “The idea was to return to Chennai in time to shoot for Karthick Naren’s film by May, but it’s likely that the US schedule may get extended further. Dhanush might be in the US for three months, and once he returns, he will start work on his film with Selvaraghavan first. He will join Karthick’s set later. However, things are very fluid right now, and we’ll get clarity only after a few weeks.”
