In 2015, the charismatic Dhanush added another feather to his cap when he delivered a solid performance in ‘Maari ’ and left his fans asking for more. In fact, fans liked his massy portrayal of a gangster so much that they even drew parallels between his performance and the ones synonymous with the legendary Rajinikanth. Nearly three years later, D is set to reprise this rustic character in ‘Maari 2’. And, as expected, this film has already created a buzz amongst fans. Now, there is some good news for those who are looking forward to its release. In an exciting development, Dhanush just took to Twitter and confirmed that ‘Maari 2’ went on floors earlier today. While making the announcement, he said that he needed everyone’s wishes for the new journey.
“With all your blessings and love ‘Maari 2’ shoot starts,” tweeted the much-loved actor.
Well, we wish Dhanush good luck and hope that ‘Maari 2’ does well at the box office. In case you did not know, ‘Maari 2’ is an action-comedy and will be directed by Balaji Mohan. Veteran music director Ilaiyaraaja had recently recorded a song in his own voice for ‘Maari 2’. While the first part featured Kajal Aggarwal as the female lead, the sequel will see the fast-rising Sai Pallavi do the honours.
On a related note, this is a busy time for Dhanush. Besides ‘Maari 2’, he also has ‘Vada Chennai’ and ‘The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir’ in his kitty. ‘Vada Chennai’ is touted to be a gangster-drama and has been directed by Vetrimaaran. In it, he will be seen alongside Andrea and Aishwarya Rajesh. It is going to be made/released as a trilogy
As far as ‘The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir’ is concerned, it is the first Hollywood film of D’s illustrious career and is based on a popular book of the same name.
