In The Gray Man, Dhanush plays an assassin named Avik San. He hardly has any dialogue in the film. In a virtual press conference with foreign press in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Dhanush opened up about the challenges the film presented. He said he felt like a newcomer all over again while shooting for The Gray Man.

“I had a great time understanding how Hollywood to work. I have made about 50 films – 22 years working in the Indian film industry. You often don’t get the chance to feel like a newcomer. The first time it all happens in a blur. You don’t realize what is happening. This time I got the chance to look at myself as a newcomer. It was really magnificent.” said Dhanush.

Dhanush shared his experience shooting the action scenes, saying he sprained his neck while filming. “It’s funny. A week before the shoot I sprained my neck. So I trained for a month and a half and a week before we started filming, I sprained it and was like, ‘What am I going to do?’ The physio just had a week to get me ready to match Ana’s speed [laughs]† But somehow they found a way to fit me into the stunt scene,” he said.

Not so long ago, the director duo Russian brothers talked about Dhanush in a Twitter Spaces chat. “We are big fans of him. We wrote the character with him in mind. You can expect a new movie soon with his character in the lead,” said the duo. Speaking of his role, the duo added: “He plays one of the best killers in the world and has two big fighting blocks in the film. Dhanush has a great camera presence and we loved seeing him perform.”
