Actor Dhanush celebrates his birthday today, the South Indian sensation turns 34 today and will be seen next in his big release Velaiilla Pattadhari 2 (VIP 2). The celebrations are set to be grand for his fans as VIP 2 is set to release in August. 

The talented actor, who made his Bollywood debut with a memorable performance in Ranjhana, has since witnessed an unprecedented growth in his career. Shamitabh was another worthy assignment for Dhanush, which he claims gave him wider exposure to Hindi-speaking audience. He has also expressed his desire to direct hindi films in future.

His acting skills have been widely recognized and appreciated by audience worldwide but the actor is not just limited to performing on screen but also has a great taste for writing. His upcoming project Velaiilla Pattadhari 2 (VIP 2) is written by the actor himself.

Dhanush is also gearing up for his Hollywood debut alongside Erin Moriarty, Barkhad Abdi, Berenice Bejo and Sarah-jeane Labrosse in ‘The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir’. The actor in an interview has also revealed his regard for superstar Rajnikanth, and said the legendary actor’s biopic will be a project he would most likely want to be a part of.

VIP 2 will have Kajol starring alongside him, the movie was stated to release today but the release date has now been postponed for inevitable reasons. ‘VIP 2’ is a sequel to Velraj-directed 2014 film Velai Illa Pattadhari. Vivek, Samuthirakani and Saranya Ponvannan who played pivotal roles in the prequel will play their roles in the second part too.
