Dhanush hopes to produce more children-based films


Accepting the diminishing trend of children’s movies in the Entertainment industry, actor-producer Dhanush, whose co-production Tamil drama “Kaaka Muttai” grabbed the National Film Award, says he will focus on producing more children-based films.

The film won the honour in the Best Children’s Film category.

“I would focus on producing more children-based films. And this is just the beginning. I hope some good scripts come my way then I can do something about it,” Dhanush told IANS.

Directed by M. Manikandan, “Kaaka Muttai” is the story of two street urchins who set out on a journey to get their first bite of pizza. Dhanush has co-produced the film with filmmaker Vetrimaaran and Fox Star Studios.

Dhanush accepted the award for the film at the 62nd National Film Awards ceremony held at Vigyan Bhavan here.

Talking about the movie, he said: “I got really curious about the script when it came to me. The story about two boys and their urge to eat pizza captivated my interest”.
