Dhanush is on track to break that record again, since his latest film, Captain Miller, has just attracted international attention.

Dhanush gained worldwide recognition after playing a crucial part as an assassin in the Russo Brothers' film The Grey Man. The film earned him international renown. Dhanush is on his way to continue that record, as his newest film, Captain Miller, has just received international notice. 

Captain Miller has been nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the UK National Film Awards, which is a major achievement for Dhanush and the entire Captain Miller crew.

Whether Captain Miller advances to the next level and wins the prize remains to be seen, which would be a significant triumph for the picture.

Arun Matheswaran directed Captain Miller, which stars Dhanush, Sundeep Kishan, Priyanka Mohan, Nivedhithaa Sathish, and Edward Sonnenblick. The period drama takes place in the pre-Independence era and focuses on an important episode in Indian history. The story follows a militant who protests against British colonial power in order to defend and help the people of his town, emphasising themes of resistance and solidarity. 

The film's soundtrack, created by GV Prakash Kumar, contributes significantly to its effect. Kumar's strong background soundtrack is important to the tale, adding emotional depth to the film's climactic scenes.
