Actor Dhanush reportedly asked one adorable question to almost every crew member on The Gray Man that he could find.

Whether you are out and about this weekend or set to spend your Friday evening sitting in front of the TV, Netflix has brought us all a brand new action movie from the Russo Brothers, The Gray Man.

Audiences in India are particularly excited to stream the Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans-led film as it features the one and only Dhanush as Avik San, an assassin known as The Lone Wolf.

However, it turns out that not only did Dhanush have one burning question for the production team on The Gray Man, but he also took on the role with a heavy sense of responsibility for Indian talent.

Dhanush had one burning question for the crew

Whilst the vast majority of Tamil cinema fans will know who Dhanush is, it seems like the actor was initially unsure of how the Russo Brothers knew who he was.

Speaking at a screening event on Wednesday, reported via The Hindustan Times, Dhanush noted how “To be honest, I was very surprised they knew about me” and added how he asked one adorable question to any The Gray Man crew member who he talked to:

“Whenever I had a conversation with any of the team, there were lots of Covid-19 protocols so we would get on zoom calls and they would tell us that you have to take a test on Monday, then Wednesday and then Friday type of things. And then I would be like, ‘haan haan… how do the Russos know about me? They’d be like, ’we don’t know’. And then the stunt team will come in, they will train me that you have to do this and this. I will be like, ‘haan haan… how do the Russos know about me?’ It went on and on and I was very surprised.” – Dhanush, via The Hindustan Times.

Dhanush would then add how “I asked everyone that question except them” to which Joe Russo revealed that they had been watching Dhanush’s action sequences from other roles.

Talking about how they found the Indian superstar, Joe Russo said at the event, “We got a few action sequences with Dhanush in lead and I remember looking at him after the third one and going, ‘Why don’t we just ask Dhanush to do this.’” Reportedly both brothers would then say together, “let’s do that’” and noted to Dhanush’s adorable question that “Well, now you know.”

The pressure of a Russo Bros project weighed heavy

Considering the scale and success of the Avengers movies, the pressure of working with the Russo Brothers certainly weighed heavy on Dhanush’s shoulders as production kicked off.

However, Dhanush has recently revealed to The Indian Express how that pressure was actually a key part of his motivation for the role, noting how he had a responsibility to show off the incredible talent emerging from India.

“I was not nervous at all. I felt I had a responsibility, now that the West is watching talents from India, I felt I had to deliver so that they come for more talent from here, that was the only thing I had in mind. Otherwise I felt no pressure. Working with the Russo brothers was a really simple and smooth process. They talk to you about the characters and they make everything so easy for you. It was really fun working with them.” – Dhanush, via The Indian Express.

ON LOCATION: Where was The Gray Man filmed? Netflix blockbuster filming locations

Dhanush was the coolest dad ever, but his sons stole the show

As The Gray Man is a global blockbuster, the film had several legs of its PR campaign, culminating for Indian audiences at the special premiere event in Mumbai.

There, on the iconic red carpet, Dhanush was notably upstaged by his two sons: posting on social media, “When you realise they have completely stolen the show from you At #TheGrayMan premiere with Yathra and Linga.” 

Dhanush would then reveal how bringing his children to the premiere was a tough, but a worthwhile decision.

“I am the coolest dad in the world, all weekends. They loved the film. They were very excited. They were really chill and cool. They surprised me because I was very nervous. I am very confident in front of the camera but I am very uncomfortable doing everything else. They loved the whole experience and it meant the world to me that they were there.” – Dhanush, via News18.

He would then reveal how “It was exciting for me, but I was very nervous thinking about the red carpet.”

“While they were so cool playing games on their mobile phones, it meant the world to me that they were by my side. There is always a first for everything and it was my first Hollywood project, and it couldn’t have gotten bigger than this. Having them next to me meant everything.” – Dhanush, via The Indian Express.
