Dhanush and Vetrimaaran to collaborate again after Vada Chennai
This will be the fourth collaboration between the actor and director
With Dhanush’s dream project Vada Chennai hitting the screens on October 17, the principal cast and crew met the press yesterday to promote their film. Speaking in detail about the origin of the project, the actor said, “Vetrimaaran and I were supposed to do Vada Chennai much before Aadukalam. But we chose to postpone it as we knew that I didn’t have the market value to shoulder such a big project. A few years after that Vetrimaaran called me and said that he was going to do Vada Chennai with Simbu in the lead, and asked me to play an important character with a screen time of 30-40 minutes. I declined the offer as I wasn’t generous enough to do a supporting role. The film didn’t materialise due to various reasons and after so many years, we’ve finally finished the project with me in the lead. I guess I was destined to play this role. Vada Chennai is the kind of film an actor can’t afford to miss.”
Vada Chennai will be released as a trilogy due to its excessive runtime. Dhanush, who said that the second instalment is almost 20 per cent complete, went on to surprise the audience by revealing that he will begin shooting for a new project with Vetrimaaran from next week to take a break from the Vada Chennai franchise.
Also starring Aishwarya Rajesh, Andrea Jeremiah, Ameer and Daniel Balaji, Vada Chennai has music by Santhosh Narayanan.
