Lyca Productions will be producing the film Vada Chennai which will have Dhanush in the lead role. The film is to be directed by Vetrimaaran.
Vetrimaaran started directing a film which had Dhanush and Parthiban in the cast. Dhanush also came forward to produce the film but the shooting was suspended in between.
After this Vetrimaaran directed the film Visaranai which was produced by Dhanush. Apart from bagging 3 National Awards, the film won laurels. After this, Vetrimaaran had mentioned that he will be directing Vada Chennai which will have Dhanush in the lead role.
Vetrimaaran had readied the story of Vada Chennai long time ago. Initially Simbhu was supposed to don the lead role but now Dhanush has been confirmed. Since Dhanush was committed in Kodi and Ennai Nokki Paayum Thotta, it was not known that when the shooting of Vada Chennai will commence. At this juncture, Lyca Productions have come forward to produce the film.
Moreover the film which was supposed to be in 2 parts is now condensed to one.
