“I have nothing to lose in Bollywood”: Dhanush

MUMBAI: R. Balki’s upcoming movie, Shamitabh will feature Amitabh Bachchan, Dhanush and Kamal Haasan's daughter Akshara Haasan in lead roles.

Dhanush, who has always played larger-than-life roles in his south flicks, has picked an unconventional role this time round. He feels motivated to experiment with roles in Bollywood as according to him, he has nothing to lose here.

Last seen in the romantic drama Raanjhanaa opposite Sonam Kapoor, Dhanush said, "I have been trying to mix my characters as much as possible down south. There, one image is stuck, so I am restricted. Here in Bollywood, I have nothing to lose. So, I experiment with my characters. I am thankful to Balki who has given me this film.”

Talking about his experience of working with Amitabh Bachchan, he said, “I don't know if I have done enough work to deserve to be working with Mr Bachchan. God has blessed me with this film.”

Akshara Haasan, who will be making her Bollywood debut with Shamitabh, added, “I really look up to Amitabh Bachchan and Dhanush but when we got on the sets, they made me feel very comfortable and made things easier for me."

Shamitabh, which also stars Rekha, is set to release on 6 February 2015.
