It must be noted that Dhanush was introduced as a playback singer in 'Pudhukottaiyilirundhu Saravanan'.
The film co-stars Aishwarya Lekshmi, Kalaiyarasan and Joju George, and marks the Indian debut of Scottish actor James Cosmo.
Karnan is on the lengthier side as far as reels are concerned, but when you are narrating the turbulent lives of a village as a whole, that is pardonable.
Also starring Sara Ali Khan, the film also features Akshay Kumar in a 'special role'.
The 37-year-old actor had earlier won the honour for his 2011 action thriller Aadukalam.
Jagame Thandhiram will be premiered by Netflix worldwide in over 190 countries and in multiple languages simultaneously.
Dhanush announced that his upcoming Tamil film Karnan will have a worldwide theatrical release in April.
According to the government, the decision was taken as the number of COVID-19 infections was coming down in the state.
The director is also yet to update whether the lead actors of Aayirathil Oruvan will be part of the sequel too.
This is Dhanush's second international outing.
