Dhanush is currently in the US shooting for his upcoming film, The Gray Man, which is a Netflix Original. Recently, he won the Best Actor for his performance in Asuran at 67th National Film Awards. On March 23, Dhanush took to social media to share a statement in which he thanked Asuran team and a lot of people.
In a statement, he wrote, "I woke up to this amazing news of being honoured with the prestigious national award for ASURAN. To win one best actor award is a dream, to win two is nothing short of a blessing. I never imagined I would come this far. There are a lot of people to thank, but just gonna state a few. As always I thank my mother and father, my guru, my brother first. I thank Vetri Maaran for giving me 'Sivasami.' Vetri, never thought when I met you at Balu Mahendra sir's office that you would become a friend, companion and brother. I am so proud of the four films we have worked on together and the two films we have produced together. I am very glad you chose to believe in me so much and I chose to believe in you. Now can't wait to hear what you have written for me next. A big hug. I sincerely thank the National Award jury for this award. I thank my producer Thanu sir for all the support. I thank my entire ASURAN team especially my family, my dear Pachaiyamma Manju, my Chidambaram Ken and my Murugan Teejay. Thank you, GV for 'Vaa Asura.' The blood bath song."
