Maari 2 just got bigger! The makers have announced that it will be a bilingual, shot in Tamil and Telugu and also, Fidaa girl Sai Pallavi will be the heroine for the project. In a tweet, director Balaji Mohan revealed that Sai Pallavi will be playing a character that is essential to the movie. “The vibrant @Sai_Pallavi92 is the #HeroineofMaari2😊Its a character thats right at the heart of the story of #Maari2😊 #SaiPallavi #Bilingual (sic),” he tweeted. This will be Sai Pallavi’s second movie in Tamil after AL Vijay’s Karu. Sai Pallavi’s grace will be an interesting match to charisma of Dhanush, making it an onscreen pair to watch out for.
Earlier, the cast and crew had also announced that Mollywood A-lister Tovino Thomas will be the antagonist in Maari 2. Interestingly, this will be his second Tamil movie as well after his debut movie Abhiyum Anuvum. Excited on being part of the project, Tovino had tweeted that he was a fan of Dhanush. “Extremely excited to be a part of ‘Maari 2’ !!!!Keep supporting!Love and cheers.#Maari2 @WunderbarFilms_ #DhanushTovino.

Maari 2 will be produced by Dhanush’s Wunderbar Films. The movie will be a sequel to the 2015 film that also starred Dhanush. While Vijay Yesudas played the antagonist, Kajal Aggarwal was the leading lady for the film. Anirudh Ravichander had composed music for the film. With rumours of a rift between Anirudh and Dhanush, it would be interesting to see who composes music for Maari 2.
