Actor Dhanush and Telugu director Sekhar Kammula are collaborating for a film, which will be the 51st movie of the Tamil star. A day ahead of his 40th birthday celebration, the film was formally announced by Dhanush on Twitter with a concept poster. The poster highlights a huge bundle of old hundred rupee notes with a rambling metro city in the background. The dated money could be a potential clue that D51 is a period film.
