Tovino Thomas will be making his debut in the Tamil film industry with the BR Vijayalakshmi directorial Abhiyum Anuvum and the Dhanush starrer Maari 2, which is in progress. Tovino, who is playing the baddie in Maari 2, confirmed recently that he was on the sets of the film for a day and will be working with the team for some more days to complete shooting his portions.

On working in Maari 2 and sharing screen space with Dhanush, the actor has said that he has a meaty role to essay in the film and will be seen appearing in two different get-ups.

Directed by Balaji Mohan, Maari, which released in 2015, is one of the biggest hits in Dhanush’s career. Ever since then, there have been a lot of expectations around its sequel, in which he returns as a dhoti-clad, moustache-twirling rowdy.

While the prequel had Kajal Aggarwal as Dhanush’s lead pair, in the sequel it will be Sai Pallavi and Varalaxmi Sarathkumar sharing screen space with the actor. Reports indicate 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 with Om Prakash cranking the camera, GK Prasanna editing it and Silva choreographing the stunts.

Tovino has a number of films lined up for release this year. His Abhiyum Anuvum, a bilingual in Tamil and Malayalam, is set for release soon. This film’s post-production is going on and the release date is expected to be announced soon. The film has Pia Bajpai playing the female lead with Suhasini, Rohini and Prabhu in pivotal roles.

Tovino’s next Malayalam film lined up for release is Theevandi which will be a Vishu release this year. Directed by TP Fellini, Tovino reportedly plays a chain smoker in the film. He also has Oru Kuprasidha Payyan, Luca and Maradona slated for release this year and the films are in various stages of production.
