Dhanush in "Anegan"Twitter/ Dhanush

The much-awaited "Anegan", starring Dhanush and Amyra Dastur, is all set to hit the screens on 13 February, a day ahead of Valentine's Day.

"Anegan" shooting has been wrapped up and the film was expected to hit the screens this month. But it did not materialise and now the makers have officially announced the film's release on 13 February.

"Is there an END to everlasting LOVE? #Anegan on FRIDAY The 13th FEB15," tweeted "Anegan" director KV Anand.

There are huge expectations on "Anegan" as it stars Dhanush in the lead role. The film's teaser, trailer and the songs have received positive response from the fans. It needs to be seen if its content will impress the audience and fare well at the box office.

"Anegan" is a romantic entertainer with Dhanush reportedly appearing in different looks. Newcomer Amyra Dastur plays the female lead opposite Dhanush, while other cast members including Karthik, Aishwarya Devan, Ashish Vidyarthi, Atul Kulkarni, Mukesh Tiwari and Thalaivasal Vijay are also part of the film's cast.

Harris Jayaraj has composed the songs, while cinematography is handled by Om Prakash and editing by Anthony. AGS Entertainment has produced the film, which is deemed as the costliest ever in Dhanush's film career so far.

Box Office Clash with Dhanush's "Shamitabh"

"Anegan" is hitting screens just a few days after the release of Dhanush's second Hindi film "Shamitabh," which is set to hit theatres on 6 February. The national award winner's Hindi debut "Raanjhanaa," which hit the screens in 2013, was both a critically-acclaimed and a commercially successful film.

In his second Hindi project, the actor will be sharing screen space with the legendary Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan. "Shamitabh," directed by Balki of "Paa" fame, is expected to have good openings even in the South, considering the presence of Dhanush in the film.

Although "Anegan" is releasing a few days after "Shamitabh" hits theatres, the romantic entertainer might end up clashing with the Bollywood flick. It will be interesting to see if Dhanush manages to strike gold with both the films.
