Dhansika has played a number of powerful roles and established herself as an actor of repute. Her role as Superstar Rajinikanth's daughter Yogi in Kabali, came in for a lot of praise. When the title of her upcoming movie was announced as Yogi Da, people began thinking that it would be a spin-off on her character from Kabali and many theories were running amok. However, the movie's makers announced that the title had nothing to do with her character from Kabali and that this would be an altogether new movie.
Now, we have news from a source close to the Yogi Da unit, about the movie's update. The source said, "The movie is heroine-centric and will revolve around Dhansika. 4 fight masters play important characters in the movie which has 4 action sequences. 3 action sequences have already been shot. The next schedule which will be the last, will begin on February 20th." The source also adds that the remaining fight sequence and a couple of other pivotal scenes would be shot in this last schedule.
Yogi Da starring Dhansika in the lead, also has Kabir Singh as the antagonist and Sayaji Shinde, Manobala and Dishyum Soman in important roles. Directed by Gowtham Krishna, this movie has music by AR Rahman's youngest sister Isshrath Quadiri and stunt choreography by Siruthai Ganesh. Reports state that Dhansika underwent intense stunts training with stuntmaster Pandian, who has also trained Vikram, Suriya and Arya.
