28 year old Dhanush won the National Film Award for his role in Aadukalam. He became a household name with Kolaveri Di from his Tamil film 3.

"For the past six months, I've been looking for a simple boy to play the lead in Raanjhnaa. My requirement was a man who could look vulnerable on screen. When I saw Dhanush in the Tamil film Aadukalam, I liked him immediately. He looks very ordinary and honest, and that was the demand of the character," Rai said.
