Netflix India’s Twitter handle shared Dhanush’s first look from the film, in which he is seen on top of a car, sporting an intense look with blood on his face. The post was captioned, “The first look of Dhanush in The Gray Man is here and it’s vera maari vera maari.”
One fan commented, “Proud moment for whole Indian Cinema Industry.” Another one said, “Our hero is back.” While one wrote, “Dhanush doing a superhero landing pose, #TheStickMan,” another one said, “He’s gonna make all of us proud.”
Based on Mark Greaney’s 2009 novel of the same name, The Gray Man is billed as an action-thriller which revolves around freelance assassin and former CIA operative Court Gentry, played by Ryan. The film follows Court as he is hunted across the world by Lloyd Hansen (Chris), a former member of Court’s CIA team. The makers also unveiled the looks of Chris, Ryan, Ana de (as Dani Miranda) and Rege-Jean, who plays Carmichael.
In an interview with PTI last December, Dhanush had said he loved working on The Gray Man and described collaborating with the Russo brothers “a very good learning experience”.
He was last seen in the 2022 Tamil action film Maaran, which also starred Malavika Mohanan. The film, written and directed by Karthick Naren, was released on Disney+ Hotstar, on March 11 in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada.
