Director Vetrimaaran has given the reason for the delay in the shooting of Vada Chennai. The shooting of the film Vada Chennai commenced with Dhanush, Amala Paul and Andrea in the cast. Velraj is handling the camera while Santhosh Narayan is composing the music. Lyca Productions is producing the film on first copy basis.
The shooting of Vada Chennai was stopped in a short span of time. After this, Dhanush started concentrating on P Pandi and Velai Illa Pattadhaari 2. The reason for this was unknown.
For the first time Vetrimaaran has explained that why there is delay in the shooting of Vada Chennai. Vetrimaaran said, “I asked Dhanush that I needed some more time to ready the film Visaranai for Oscar recommendations. No other producer would have allowed this. But Dhanush who was generous started concentrating on his other two films.”
