One of the critics, Courtney Howard tweeted her review of the film and mentioned Dhanush’s scenes in the film. She wrote that his scenes are sharp and ruthless. Here’s what she tweeted, “[email protected]_Brother’ #TheGrayMan has unrelenting, well-constructed action sequences. Battle of wits, bullets & brawn. Ryan Gosling & @ChrisEvans share excellent repartee (and sleazebag facial hair!). Ana de Armas is badass & beauty. Dhanush’s scenes are ruthless & sharp (sic).”  

Meanwhile, Dhanush in a press interaction revealed how he got the role in ‘The Gray Man’. Dhanush was asked how he got the project and he replied, “I don’t know how I ended up in this film. The casting agency in India told me that they have a Hollywood project for me. They said it is a big film. So I said okay. I asked which film, what film? They said it is a big film. So I said alright, and it can’t get bigger than this.”  

He further added: “I was thrilled and very excited. Of course, I don’t get to say much in the film. I was super thrilled and was looking for an opportunity to learn and explore.”
