Chennai, Jan 31 (IANS) The sequel to Dhanush-starrer Tamil entertainer “Maari”, which released last year in cinemas, is in the pipeline and will go on the floors later this year, a source said.
“Director Balaji Mohan has been working on the script of ‘Maari 2’ over the last few months. The project is expected to go on the floors around October this year. By then, Dhanush will be relieved of all his commitments, including his Hollywood project,” a source close to Dhanush told IANS.
In “Maari”, Dhanush played a lungi-clad, moustache-twirling local don.
“He will reprise the same role in the sequel. The team is waiting for Dhanush to grow back his handlebar moustache for the film,” the source said.
Meanwhile, Dhanush is wrapping up for Tamil political thriller “Kodi”. From June, he will start working on his international project “The Fakir”.
The source added that he also has a film with “Raanjhanaa” director Anand L. Rai in the offing.
