After the super-successful film Maari, director Balaji Mohan and Dhanush are once again coming together for its sequel- Maari 2. Balaji took to Twitter to update fans about the film.
“Happy that Maari 2 shoot is progressing at a brisk pace and is 40% done. Will resume after the strike and targeting release in the second half of 2018 @dhanushkraja @ Sai_pallavi92 @Actor_Krishna @ttovino @varusarath @thisisysr”
The movie will release later this year and the pending shoot will commence after the strike of Tamil film producer’s council against the digital service providers ends. The bilingual movie is simultaneously being shot in Tamil and Telugu. Dhanush will be seen pulling off stunts and dance numbers in the much-awaited film. Fida fame Sai Pallavi stars in the movie as the leading lady opposite Dhanush.
About the film, Dhanush had earlier said, “Maari 2 will definitely be better than the first part of both content and emotions side.”
The first installment of Maari was a thriller starring Dhanush and Kajal Aggarwal, which garnered a positive response from the audience. Dhanush essayed the role of a local goon in the movie. The film had done stupendous business at the box-office but had received mixed reviews. About this Dhanush had said, “The mixed reviews for Maari didn’t affect me. It was one of my best-collected films. I generally feel that a major number of commercial movies get mixed reviews. Only a few proper commercial films escape that. It’s just my observation.”
In Maari 2, Malayalam actor Tovino Thomas will be seen playing the antagonist and will also mark his debut in Tamil film industry. Varalaxmi Sarath Kumar, Kreshna, and Robo Shankar will be playing pivotal roles in the movie.
For now, Dhanush is busy with director Vettrimaran’s Vada Chennai opposite Andrea Jeremiah. He is also the producer of Superstar Rajinikanth starrer Kaala.
Happy that #Maari2 shoot is progressing at brisk pace & is 40% done. Will resume after the strike & targeting release in the second half of 2018 🙂 @dhanushkraja @Sai_Pallavi92 @Actor_Krishna @ttovino @varusarath @thisisysr pic.twitter.com/YXCSoaOw0C
