Dhanush confirmed the news via Twitter.
"Velailla Pattathari", also featuring Amala Paul, will be helmed by cinematographer-turned-director Velraj, who previous handled the camera for films such as "3" and "Pollathavan", featuring Dhanush.
The film is expected to go on floors from Aug 30, and it will be predominantly shot in Chennai and some rural parts of Tamil Nadu.
Meanwhile, Dhanush is busy wrapping up Tamil comedy "Naiyaandi". He will also soon team with filmmaker K.V. Anand for another yet untitled Tamil project.
