Actor Dhanush, who recently completed shooting for R. Balakrishnan-directed “Shamitabh”, Sunday said that he could be part of the project because filmmaker K.V Anand allowed him to take out time to shoot for it while working on his upcoming Tamil film “Anegan”.

“I was working on ‘Anegan’ when I got the offer to work in ‘Shamitabh’. I was amazed by the film’s script but didn’t know how I would take out time to shoot for it. But K.V Anand sir was kind enough to adjust his dates for me to work in ‘Shamitabh’. I need to thank him for that,” Dhanush told reporters here.

He was speaking at the audio launch of “Anegan”, which was unveiled here amidst the film’s cast and crew.

Anand, who is known for lacing social issues in his stories, has for the first time attempted a full-length romantic film that is set against the backdrop of different time zones.
