Dhanush, who is shooting for Karnan in Tirunelveli, took to Twitter on Tuesday and posted a picture of himself holding television director Ravi Rai’s debut novel The Tattoo on my Breast.
He captioned the image saying, “Splendid !! Mind blowing. A must read. @Raviravirai‘s the tattoo on my breast transports you into the era of partition to a level where you can feel it, (sic).” In an earlier interview to DT Next, the actor-producer said that he is an avid reader. “When I’m not shooting, I read a lot. I have finished close to 1,000 books. It is Aishwaryaa, who introduced me to reading books. Jeffrey Archer is my favourite author.” He also said that he doesn’t resort to apps when it comes to reading. “I need to feel the paper with my fingers and apps do not provide that satisfaction that books do. I have a clip-on book reading lamp and I use it when I read books in dark or in places where there is no electricity. There are even a couple of books that I want to adapt into films,” he added.
