After Raanjhanaa,Dhanush waited for about eight months and went through some 33 scripts before Shamitabh happened, which he feels is the toughest role in his career.“A lot of scripts came my way after Raanjhanaa. I think I read about 33 scripts but there was nothing solid to back up my first Hindi film. I kept waiting for about eight months when R Balki called. He is like ‘if you are free for a couple of hours do drop in’.
After a two-hour narration I knew I was doing it,” Dhanush told in an interview. The 31-year-old actor believes Shamitabh is a great opportunity for him to learn from the best.
“It would be my toughest role in my 28 films career. It was mentally very taxing. The character was not easy to play. Hopefully, I have done a convincing job and lived up to the director’s expectations and people’s expectations if they have any,” he said.
