Kollywood actor Dhanush is all set to team up with British model-actress Amy Jackson in a yet-to-be titled Tamil film. The film, which is scheduled to go on floors next year, marks the second film of the 32-year-old ‘Raanjhanaa’ star with director Velraj after ‘Vela Illa Pattathari’ (VIP).

“VIP team is getting back again. February shoot. @iamAmyJackson will be playing the female lead. Title will be revealed soon,” Dhanush posted on Twitter. In her four-year-old career, Jackson, 23, starred in two Tamil films - ‘Madrasapattinam’ and ‘Thaandavam’, besides one Bollywood movie ‘Ekk Deewana Tha.’ The actress is overjoyed to work in her next movie. “Very happy to announce my next movie project opposite none other than the awesome @dhanushkraja #Rollon2015,” Jackson tweeted.

Meanwhile, Dhanush-produced Tamil film “Naanum Rowdy Dhaan”, which features Vijay Sethupathi and Nayantara in the lead, went on floors. Being directed by Vignesh Shivan, the film is said to be high on comedy. Dhanush, who turned producer last year with Tamil drama “Ethir Neechal”, recently scored a blockbuster with “Vela Illa Pattathari.” On the acting front, he’s currently busy shooting for Tamil comedy “Maari”, while awaiting release of romantic-drama “Anegan”.
