Maari 2 is the sequel to the 2015 hit-flick Maari, starring Dhanush and Kajal Agarwal. Maari was a gangster film where Maari (Dhanush) plays a local ruffian who troubles everyone in his locality. The film created its own cult with the attire and the look of Dhanush and the film’s popular catchphrase ‘Senjiruven.’
The sequel will have new actors Sai Pallavi, Tovino Thomas, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar and Krishna. Robo Shankar and Kalloori Vinoth, sidekicks in the original movie, will also be in the sequel, according to the film’s crew.
Maari was Balaji Mohan’s first gangster film after his Vaaya Moodi Pesavum, which failed at the box-office. The film was made under Wunderbar Films — Dhanush’s production house. The major change in the sequel is that the director has replaced Anirudh Ravichander with Yuvan Shankar Raja.
