The report also stated that Subbaraj had his eyes set on Morgan Freeman, but things didn't go as planned and the idea was dropped. Then the makers turned to Al Pacino; and the team is now discussing the script with him.  Subbaraj's last film, Jigarthanda, was dubbed as a musical gangster film and was well received by the audience and critics alike.

Earlier this year, director Shankar had wanted to rope in Hollywood action star Arnold Schwarzenegger to play the antagonist in his upcoming movie Enthiran 2, starring Rajinikanth, but things didn't go as planned.

Nonetheless, Dhanush will be foraying into Hollywood after making his Bollywood debut with Raanjhana and then Shamitabh. Dhanush will be starring in The Fakir along with the likes of Uma Thurman and the film will behelmed by Iranian-French director Marjane Satrapi.
