Dhanush is currently on cloud nine after the immense success of his latest film 'Vada Chennai'. The film has given him a superstar status and the actor has some really impressive projects in the works. One of them is the sequel to the 2015 hit film 'Maari'. Titled as 'Maari 2', the actor had revealed recently that the film's first look will be unveiled on November 2. Now, he has finally released the highly anticipated poster for his fans as promised.
The first look shows Dhanush in his trademark Maari avatar. Sporting a colourful red shirt and blue inner with gold chains dangling from his neck, he can also be seen sporting a pair of shades. Other than that he has also retained his hairstyle and moustache from the original film, which will definitely be a source of delight for his fans. Moreover, he can be seen bursting a firecracker with a mischievious grin on his face. Overall, the poster is explosive, to say the least, and the theme is perfect with Diwali right around the corner.
Another interesting information that can be gleaned from the first look is the film's release date which turns out to be in December 2018. The actor, who had unveiled this poster via his Twitter handle, also had a really cool caption which read, "The naughtiest don is back. #Maari2FirstLook #Maari2 #tharalocal #senjuruven". The caption is another throwback to the first film for it contains his character's famous punch dialogue "senjuruven", which he used throughout the movie.
'Maari 2' is directed by Balaji Mohan, who also helmed the original. However, there has been a bit of a change in the supporting cast. Kajal Aggarwal has been replaced by Sai Pallavi, whereas Tovino Thomas, Krishna Kulasekaran, Vidya Pradeep and Varalaxmi Sarathkumar are new additions. Meanwhile, Robo Shankar and Kalloori Vinoth have been retained as Maari's faithful sidekicks and will act as comic relief in the sequel. The film marks the second collaboration between Dhanush and Balaji Mohan.
