The National Award winning star Dhanush has a slew of films in his kitty including Maari 2, which will start rolling very soon. And with this film, he will have paired up with all the three Premam girls. While Anupama Parameswaran played one of the leading ladies in the Dhanush starrer Kodi, it was Madonna Sebastian in Power Pandi. The latest is Sai Pallavi, who will be seen pairing up with the star in Maari 2.
Maari was a gangster comedy film that was released in 2015. The film turned out to be a massive hit prompting Dhanush and team to go ahead with the sequel. Directed by Balaji Mohan, Maari was produced jointly by Listin Stephen, R. Sarathkumar, Raadhika Sarathkumar and Dhanush under the banners Magic Frames and Wunderbar Films. The sequel will also be helmed by Balaji Mohan, who had been working on the script for several months now.
Tipped to be a bilingual, the film will be made in Tamil and Telugu, confirmed its director. While Kajal Agarwal played Dhanushâ€™s love-interest in Maari, she will not feature in the sequel, he added. Robo Shankar and Vinod who were part of Maari have been retained and the new addition to the star cast happens to be the Malayalam actor Tovino Thomas who will be seen playing the villain.
Interestingly, Anirudh had scored music for Maari but it needs to be seen if he would join the team again for the sequel following his fallout with Dhanush. It may be noted that Sean Roldan had composed music for Dhanushâ€™s VIP 2 and Power Paandi.
To be bankrolled by Dhanushâ€™s Wunderbar Films, the groundwork to get this project onto the floors has begun already and the shooting will begin later this month, we hear.
