Dhanush, who is basking in the success of his recent films 'Thiruchitrambalam' and 'Vaathi/SIR', is gearing up for his next big release 'Captain Miller'. The film, directed by Arun Matheswaran, is a period action thriller set in the 1940s and revolves around the revolution of an LTTE activist.
The shooting of 'Captain Miller' has been going on in full swing in the forest region of Tenkasi, Tamil Nadu. Recently the film has faced its share of challenges during its shoot for allegedly causing harm to the wildlife and environment. Now the next trouble has came in the form of leaked videos of film's pivotal scenes on social media.
The team has erected a grand set for the film and is currently shooting some high-octane war sequences. A video of the same was leaked online recently, caused an uproar among the fans, and the production team was quick to take action. In the aftermath of the incident, the production team has strengthened the security arrangements on the sets, and cell phones and video cameras have been strictly banned to avoid any further breaches of privacy.
The team is expected to wrap up the shooting by mid-April and start the post-production work. The film features Priyanka Mohan as the female lead and also stars Shiva Rajkumar, Sundeep Kishan, Nivedhithaa Sathish and others in pivotal roles. The music is composed by GV Prakash Kumar.
Meanwhile, Dhanush's 'Captain Miller' is set to face a tough competition at the box office as Karthi's 'Japan' is also planning for a Diwali 2023 release. The stage is set for a big clash as Dhanush takes on Karthi in what could be the biggest tier 2 face-off of the year.
Both 'Captain Miller' and 'Japan' are highly anticipated films of 2023 and have a huge fan following. It will be interesting to see how they fare at the box office and which one will emerge as the winner. This Diwali 2023 will surely be a treat for moviebuffs as they will witness the biggest clash of tier 2 stars - Dhanush vs Karthi.
