Shirts with daring and bold prints, large gold chains and the cool "murukku meesai" (moustache) - These were fashion trends that Dhanush's 'Maari' brought in 2015. The trends are still sticking around and will ensure that 'Maari 2' will also be a hit.
On Friday, the makers of Dhanush-starrer 'Maari 2' has released the first look of the film and has confirmed that it would be released in December this year.
In the first look, Maari has retained the same swag as in the previous film, and he is seen throwing a firecracker in style.
Instead of Kajal Aggarwal, we will be seeing 'Premam' fame Sai Pallavi in the female lead. Other new cast members include Varalaxmi Sarathkumar and Tovino Thomas. Robo Shankar and Vinod, who played Dhanush’s sidekicks in the first part, will also be a part of this film.
Although the 2015 film 'Maari' saw the best hits from Anirudh Ravichander, we will hear the tunes from Yuvan Shankar Raja. In fact, one of the songs have been sung by Yuvan's father and music maestro Ilaiyaraaja. The Yuvan-Dhanush collaboration is happening after almost 10 years after the 2008 film 'Yaaradi Nee Mohini'.
The dance choreography for the film was done by Prabhudheva.
