The makers of Dhanush's upcoming directorial venture, Raayan, have released a captivating character poster featuring actor-director Selvaraghavan. The poster showcases a monochromatic theme, with Selvaraghavan delivering an intense gaze while wearing his signature glasses. An intriguing backdrop of polluted factories adds to the poster's enigmatic appeal, hinting at a possible connection between the character and the mysterious setting.

Selvaraghavan's inclusion in Raayan marks a special collaboration, as he is also Dhanush's brother. The two have previously worked together on several successful films, including Thulluvadho Ilamai (2002), Pudhupettai (2006), Yaaradi Nee Mohini (2008), and Mayakkam Enna (2011). Sharing the poster on social media, Dhanush expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to direct his brother in his film, stating, "Never thought I'll direct you someday @selvaraghavan."

Earlier, rumors circulated that the film's script was a reworked version of a script written by Selvaraghavan. However, Selvaraghavan clarified that he had no involvement in the scriptwriting process for Raayan, emphasizing that it was purely Dhanush's creation.

Raayan, also known as D 50, marks Dhanush's second directorial project and the 50th film of his acting career. The film is reportedly a gangster drama set against the backdrop of North Madras, with Dhanush rumored to play the role of a former gangster who is now a cook.

Apart from Dhanush and Selvaraghavan, the film also features an ensemble cast including SJ Suryah, Kalidas Jayaram, and Sundeep Kishan in pivotal roles. Actress Dushara Vijayan will be seen opposite Dhanush as the female lead. Academy Award-winning composer A R Rahman has provided the music for the film. The release of the intriguing character poster of Selvaraghavan has further piqued the audience's interest in Raayan, raising expectations for this highly anticipated gangster drama. Excitement is increasing over Raayan among fans and they are waiting eagerly to watch Dhanush and Selvaraghavan on the big screen.
