It’s time again for floral shirts, handlebar moustache, flashy gold jewellery and the ‘Senjiruven’ catchphrase.
Wunderbar Studios have announced the return of Dhanush as the street smart Chennai ruffian in Maari 2, hitting cinemas worldwide on December 21, 2018.
The sequel to Balaji Mohan’s megahit Maari features Sai Pallavi, Varalaxmi Sarath Kumar, Tovino Thomas and Krishna, in its star-studded ensemble.
Earlier last year, an official announcement was made on the Maari 2 Twitter account on Yuvan Shankar Raja’s role as the film’s music director. The much awaited YSR-Dhanush combo returns on screen with kuthu-worthy songs after 10 years and has received much love for the recently released ‘Rowdy Baby’ with over 9.7million views on Youtube.

Dhanush will be going up against the film’s antagonist played by Tovino Thomas. The Malayalam actor and heartthrob was recently in Dhanush’s first Malayalam production Tharanga has since been roped for this film for the role of Beeja AKA Thanatos.
December 21 is also the day that Vijay Sethupathi’s ‘Seethakathi’, Jayam Ravi’s ‘Adanga Maru’ and Vishnu Vishal’s ‘Silukkuvarupatti Singam’ will be hitting cinemas.
This only means one thing for us. Movie Marathon time!!!
