Actor Dhanush and director Balaji Mohan had recently announced that they will be starting the sequel to their 2015 film Maari which starred Dhanush and Kajal Aggarwal in the lead roles. And as they had suggested, recently the sequel – Maari 2 – was officially launched by director Balaji Mohan. The film will go on floors in October. And post the launch, the makers had roped in Malayalam budding star Tovino Thomas as the antagonist of the film. And now, the makers have now roped in top South Indian actress Sai Pallavi who is on a roll in her career.
Confirming the development, director Balaji Mohan took to social media and wrote a message which read – “The vibrant @Sai_Pallavi92 is the #HeroineofMaari2 Its a character thats right at the heart of the story of #Maari2 #SaiPallavi #Bilingual.” Sai Pallavi has been having a great run in her career with her Telugu debut film Fidaa turning out to be a super hit film. Sai Pallavi is also working on a film with Nani which is titled MCA.

Mari 2 will be made as a bilingual in Tamil and Telugu, and will be released simultaneously. Dhanush and Sai Pallavi, both, enjoy huge admiration in the Telugu states and the makers would want cash in on the following. Sai Pallavi also has another Tamil-Malayalam film titled Karu which is being currently shot.
Dhanush, on the other hand, just wrapped up the shoot of his Hollywood debut film and will soon start shooting for his portions in Maari 2.
