Dhanush, who made his Hollywood film debut with ‘The Gray Man’, has left his co-stars impressed with his craft. After Ryan Gosling, Regé-Jean Page and Jessica Henwick could not stop praising Dhanush in an interview.
Regé compared the actor to Batman and said even the superhero has a long way to go before he can become as ‘bad***’ as Dhanush. The Tamil actor stars as Avik San, a powerful assassin, in the upcoming action-thriller directed by The Russo Brothers. Regé stars as CIA director Denny Carmichael, while Jessica plays Suzanne Brewer, a clever and merciless CIA agent.
“He is incredible. He is such a great actor. He has such an amazing presence on screen. He is so precise. He never made a mistake…And he is just so funny and charming. The biggest difficulty was pretending like we were enemies or something because I just liked him so much.”

Regé then said, “Also, close second – Dhanush, while Jessica added, “Dhanush was amazing”.
Regé said about Dhanush, “The grace and style and bad***ery of that man, is something to behold and that’s going to be a thunderbolt in the film”. Jessica added, “He has a quiet power and I want that”. Regé further compared Batman and Dhanush, saying, “If Batman was twice as bad***, then he might get halfway to where Dhanush is in this film”.
