Born on July 28, 1983 in the household of director-producer Kasthuri Raja, Dhanush was pressured to enter films on insistence of his director brother Selva Raghavan. He was named as Venkatesh Prabhu at the time of his birth, but later adopted the stage name Dhanush. He was launched into Kollywood by his director father in Thulluvadho Ilamai in which his performance was lauded by the critics.
Later on he starred in his brother’s directorial venture Kadhal Kondein, which turned out to be a blockbuster hit. After starring in lots of commercial films and tasting success in Tamil, he went on to carve a niche for himself as a singer and terrific dancer. He married superstar Rajinikanth’s daughter Aishwarya and the couple have two kids now. ALSO READ: Dhanush injured on the sets of Maari 2, assures fans he is fine – read tweet
Dhanush is very well known for his kuthu steps, so on his birthday we bring 5 best kuthu dance songs of VIP star:
Enga Area Ulla Varadhey – Pudhupettai
Dancing to the amazing fusion of fast paced western beats along with old Tamil songs, Dhanush’s Enga Area Ulla Varadhey has some amazing steps to look out for. Despite his thin frame, the Mayakkam Enna star showed great screen space and owned the song with some amazing kuthu steps. He proved that he can pull off dance numbers with his sheer charisma.
Otha Sollaala – Aadukalam
Dhanush’s careless moves on the crowded street sets up for a visual delight as we witness a local wastrels mojo as he celebrates success in love. Dhanush’s energy is infectious as he lifts his lungi and dances while biting it. He made sure that the song was never low on tempo, playing his part with absolute conviction.
Why this kolaveri di – 3
The song that captured the nation’s imagination,Kolaveri Di sung by Dhanush himself has some hard hitting dance moves from the star. Dhanush pulled off some weird yet crowd pleasing steps at the beach backdrop to a song slow in tempo. The star showed that dance does not mean heavy steps but it is an art of body language and Dhanush is certainly the master of the art.
Variya – Pudhupettai
This is a proper kuthu song from Pudhupettai in which Dhanush shines and how. While his crazy moves may not attract everyone but his charisma and energy transcends from the screen making you want to break into a dance of your own. Though the star may be criticised for doing same shades of role, he has proved that he is brilliant at what he does.
What a Karvad – Velai Illa Pattadhaari
This film had songs which were on everybody’s lips. But the way fans reacted when Dhanush danced to What a Karvad is sight not to miss. Whistles blew, colour papers were thrown in the air as the VIP actor broke into a dance after too much drinking. The step where he turns his back to us and lifts his shirt a little set a new trend in the world of kuthu song.
Bollywoodlife wishes Dhanush a very happy birthday and hopes the lanky star continues to enthrall us with his entertaining moves.
