Directed by Balaji Mohan, “Maari 2” also stars Sai Pallavi. The Tamil action-comedy film marks Balaji’s second collaboration with Dhanush after “Maari”. Veteran music composer Ilaiyaraaja has sung a song for “Maari 2”. In “Maari”, Dhanush played a dhoti-clad, moustache-twirling local rowdy and he was paired with Kajal Aggarwal. Actors Robo Shankar and Vinod, who played Dhanush’s sidekicks in the first part, will be part of “Maari 2”. Malayalam actor Tovino Thomas is playing the antagonist.
