In the history of Indian cinema, we have heard of instances where actors keep their directors and producers waiting, be it for dates or on the location.
But Dhanush was apparently faced with a different situation while shooting in Namibia for Bharathbala’s Mariyaan. The actor was all prepped up and waiting to shoot, but Bharathbala was preoccupied with canning sequences with other artists. And he seems to have kept Dhanush waiting!
A source close to the unit claims, “The unit was shooting outdoors in Namibia, and according to the original schedule, Dhanush had to shoot for his portions that day. He got ready and came to the location on time. But the director was busy and didn’t inform Dhanush about the change in plan. After a long wait, the actor stomped off the sets.”
We hear that Dhanush then told the unit hands that he needed to be informed by Bharathbala himself about the schedule for the day. The source adds, “He then told the director that he was an equally big star in Tamil Nadu!”
Meanwhile, the next schedule of the film will be held in a village (Neeradi) in Kanyakumari, for which Dhanush has to grow a thick handlebar moustache. Neither the actor or his spokesperson were available for comment at the time of going to press.
