Dhanush all set for South Indian Pad Man?

R Balki's latest offering Pad Man, starring Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte in the leads had quite a successful run at the box office in the first week of its release. However, the film is casting its spell at the box office with each passing day, and is unstoppable. Akshay's Valentine's week release past year, Jolly LLB 2, had fared worse than Pad Man, earning Rs73.58 crore in its first week. The film collected 2.10 crores on its Friday which takes its total to 64.97 crores.
