There was an overwhelming response for the film Maari which had Dhanush in the lead role. Balaji Mohan had directed the film. After the stupendous success of the film, Balaji Mohan decided to make part 2 of the film. Dhanush is producing the film under the banner Wunderbar Films.
The announcement regarding this was made recently. Sai Pallavi will be pairing with Dhanush. Tovino Thomas will be donning the dreaded villain role. Kreshna has been signed for the second lead role.
Anirudh had composed music for the part 1. All the songs were great hits. Hence it was expected that Anirudh will compose music for the part 2. Now there is news that Yuvan Shankar Raja has been signed to compose music for part2. Yuvan Shankar Raja had earlier composed music for Dhanush’s films Kadhal Kondein and Pudhupettai.
But according to the other sources, it has been denied as baseless rumors that Yuvan Shankar Raja is not composing music for this film.
