Dhanush - Balaji Mohan film titled 'Maari' [First Look]

The title of director Balaji Mohan's next film and the first look of actor Dhanush in it are both out!

Director Balaji Mohan who had earlier directed films such as Kadhalil Sodhapuvadhu Yeppadi and Vaayai Moodi Pesavum is now directing a film which has Dhanush in the lead role.

Kajal Aggarwal is pairing with Dhanush. The film has been titled Maari. Radhika Sarathkumar is producing the film under the banner Magic Frames.

Says director Balaji Mohan, "The title of the film is Maari and yes, that is the name of Dhanush's character in my film. We have been shooting for it for the last four days in the city."

While the film has music by Anirudh, the camera is being handled by Om Prakash. "Kajal Agarwal plays the heroine in the film. However, it is too early to disclose anything about either her character in the film or that of Dhanush. All that I can say about the film at this point in time is that this will be a wholesome entertainer that will be completely different from my earlier films, both of which had generous doses of comedy in them," the director says.

Dhanush is on a roll with the success of his last release "Velai Illa Pattathari", which turned out to be a blockbuster at the box office. The actor is currently awaiting the release of his upcoming film "Anegan".

It will be interesting to see if "Maari" will impress the audience. Kajal Aggarwal will play the female lead role opposite Dhanush. The duo was supposed to team up for Vetrimaran's "Polladhavan" but missed out the opportunity. But, now they will be seen sharing screen space in Mohan's "Maari."

The film's shooting kicked off recently and is progressing well. It is expected to be wrapped up soon and hit the screens next year. Robo Shankar, who tickled the audience's funny bones in the Dulquer starrer will be seen playing an important role in this upcoming film.

Music composer Anirudh has once again joined hands with Dhanush for this film after the stupendous success of their albums "3" and "Velai Illa Pattathari". Radhika Sarathkumar's Magic Frames will be producing the project, and it is expected to be different from Mohan's other romantic flicks.
