When Dhanush revealed that he was body-shamed on the sets of Kaadhal Kondein

In 2002, Dhanush made his acting debut in his father Kasthuri Raja's sleeper success movie Thulluvadho Ilamai. He went on to deliver a number of popular movies, including 3, Maryan, Anegan, Kodi, Vadachennai, and Asuran. Dhanush, one of the most well-known actors in the south, has disclosed that he was once severely teased by members of his own film crew, which caused him to have a breakdown. Dhanush is now a star in the Hindi cinema industry as well. In 2015, during a conversation with Vijay Sethupathi, Anirudh Ravichander, and Sathish, Dhanush spoke candidly about how in his early years, people would make fun of his appearance and physique.

He said, “While shooting for Kaadhal Kondein, I was asked who the hero was. I pointed at someone else from the cast as I was not ready to face any more insults. However, later when they came to know that I was the hero, everyone on the set laughed at me. They said, ‘hey look at the auto-driver, he is the hero’ and so on. I went to my car and cried out loud as I was a young boy and did not have composure back then. There is not even one person who has not trolled and body-shamed me. Why can't an auto driver be a hero?”

Meanwhile, Dhanush is all set to make his Hollywood debut in the film The Gray Man. Directed by the Russo Brothers, the film also stars Chris Evans, Ryan Gosling, and Ana de Armas.
