CHENNAI: At a time when lines between film industries are fading, superstar Dhanush believes people should not attach regional identities to actors.

The National Award winner, who features in director duo Joe Russo and Anthony Russo’s much-awaited action spectacle The Gray Man, said efforts must be made to produce movies as a united ‘Indian film industry’.

“It doesn’t make sense at this time to refer to me or anyone else as south actors... I would appreciate it if we are collectively called as Indian actors, and not south actors or north actors. The world has shrunk and the lines at the borders are fading. This is the time to come together and make one big Indian film industry,” Dhanush, who predominantly works in Tamil films, told reporters here.

“It will be great if we function together and make movies for everyone, not just south or north audiences. Today, every film is a national film and especially with the digital platforms, people have access to watch everybody’s work,” he added.

He was speaking at the promotional event of the Netflix film The Gray Man on Thursday. He was joined by the Russo Brothers.
