IndiaGlitz [Saturday, October 20, 2012]

This "Kolaveri" lad is indeed being a huge rage in B-town. After bagging Aanand L Rai's 'Raanjhnaa' co-starring Sonam Kapoor, globe wide famed, south star Dhanush said to have got his second Bollywood ticket.

Talks are that Dhanush has been signed in for the lead for the much talked project 'Mountain Man'. To be directed by Manish Jha and produced by Sanjay Singh, the biopic was earlier planned with Manoj Bajpai playing the protagonist.

However, according to sources, the makers felt that Bajpai will be too old for the character; instead Dhanush seems to be perfectly right, physically as well as age wise. So they believe that he will be able to play the part well.

The film is based on real-life character, the famous Dashrath Manjhi who is popularly called as the 'Mountain Man'. Manjhi is known to have single-handedly dug a road in a mountain for 22 years, tediously day and night, through a mountain in Gahlour village in Bihar.

'Gangs Of Wasseypur' famed actor Nawazuddin Siddhiqui was also initially said to have been considered for the lead hero.
