Maari 2 will be one of many releases of actor Dhanush this year. As he awaits the release of Vada Chennai first part on 17 October 2018, director Balaji Mohan's Maari 2 aiming for release on December 21 this year.
Maari is one of the biggest hits in Dhanush’s career, was released in the year 2015. Ever since then, there have a lot of expectations on its sequel, in which he returns as a dhoti-clad, mustache-twirling rowdy. The project was supposed to materialize much earlier but due to Dhanush’s multiple commitments, including his directorial project Power Paandi, the film had to be pushed.
While the prequel had Kajal Agarwal as Dhanush’s lead pair, in the sequel it will be Sai Pallavi and Varalaxmi Sarathkumar sharing the screen space with the actor. Reports are that Varalaxmi may be seen in a negative role in the film.
Maari 2 is being bankrolled by Dhanush’s home production Wunderbar Films. Yuvan Shankar Raja is composing the music for Maari with Om Prakash cranking the camera, GK Prasanna editing it and Silva for choreographing the stunts.

Meanwhile, Dhanush’s second directional project has been officially announced by Thenandal Studios. The production house recently announced that the project started rolling and that it also stars Akkineni Nagarjuna, SJ Suryah, Srikanth and Aditi Rao Hydari.
