Dhanush Becomes the ‘no.1’ Actor in South in Terms of Twitter Followers

National award-winning actor Dhanush, who dons various hats of a producer, lyric writer, playback singer, director, etc., has added one more feather to his cap by becoming the ‘No.1’ South Indian actor in terms of number of followers of his Twitter account.

Dhanush released on his Twitter account the ‘first-look’ posters of his upcoming film Vada Chennai directed by Vetrimaaran. The film is a first on a triology of films and pits the talented Aishwarya Rajesh and the playback singer-turned-actress Andrea Jeremiah opposite Dhanush for the first time. Dhanush set a new benchmark on Friday when the number of his Twitter followers crossed the 7-million mark.

Star of Enai Nokki Paayum Thotta, Maari 2 and the Hollywood venture The Extra-Ordinary Journey of a Fakir, Dhanush is also producing his father-in-law and superstar Rajinikanth’s upcoming film Kaala directed by Pa. Ranjith. Very active on social networking sites, Dhanush is habitual of regularly updating his well-wishers, fans and friends on Twitter about developments on personal/professional fronts.

He now has the most number of followers on Twitter among South Indian actors; superstar Rajini is second with 4.58 million and is closely followed by Kamal Haasan with 4.31 million followers. Vijay lags at a distant spot with a mere 1.44 million followers while Ajith Kumar doesn’t have any official Twitter account at all!
