Happy birthday Dhanush

There are actors, then there are superstars, and then there are artistes. And if there is one performer who deserves all of these accolades, it is Dhanush. The actor, who made his debut in Tamil films, has become a household name as a result of his outstanding performances in films of different genres and languages. Dhanush has been able to slip into the garb of various characters with the easiness and poise of a veteran, from the boy-next-door to the menacing gangster you don’t want to mess with. Despite being the son-in-law of superstar Rajnikanth, Dhanush has developed his own identity.

Dhanush is widely regarded as one of the most talented actors in Tamil cinema. Because of his impressive body of work, hard-hitting performances, and wonderful personality, the National Award-winning star has a large fan base. He’s appeared in a number of well-received films and proven that success is his middle name. Today, as ‘D’ turns a year older, here’s a look at some of his most popular films.

Finally, she gives in due to his “consistency.” When Zoya enrols at JNU (Jawaharlal Nehru University), the film shifts cities and introduces us to the university’s idealistic and political culture. As she confronts, then falls for, student leader Akram, she rediscovers a long-lost strength (Abhay Deol). Zoya returns to her hometown after an eight-year absence, only to discover that some things have changed and others, surprisingly, have not.
