Its straight form the horse's mouth this time. It is neither Jayapradha nor Sri Devi, but Manisha Koirala who would play Dhanush's mother-in-law in 'Mappillai'.
Speaking to reporters in Chennai Tuesday, the actor said the Bollywood big gun would sign on the dotted line in a day or two. "She has accepted the offer thanks to the role's weightage," he said.
Produced by Nemichand Jhabak and V Hitesh Jhabak for Sun Pictures, the film directed by Suraaj has Hansika Motwani opposite Dhanush. It has musical score by Mani Sharma.
On his Pongal release 'Kutty', Dhanush said, "I am happy with the film's outcome. It is bringing audience to cinema halls as families. All credits go to the entire cast and crew of the movie."
