Actor Dhanush’s Vada Chennai directed by Vetrimaaran is expected to release in August followed by Rajinikanth’s Kaala in June. Both the films are produced by Dhanush’s Wunderbar Films. The first part of the three-part series is one of the anticipated releases this year as the director-actor duo has collaborated after hits like Polladhavan and Aadukalam.

Dhanush in March this year unveiled the first look of the film and shared two posters. He wrote that he plays a character called Anbu, whose name goes beyond the character. Going by the two posters, we see two different sides to Dhanush’s character. In a poster that features other actors too, we see Dhanush stepping out of a police van, smiling at Aishwarya Rajesh in distance. In the second poster, we see him with a knife in his mouth and climbing what appears to be a rope.

While it was speculated that Dhanush plays a gangster in the film, Vetrimaaran, in his interview to Tamil magazine revealed that the actor plays an aspiring carom player in the film.

Earlier, the film was expected to release in June, however, according to the latest updates, the first part is being planned for August release. An official update from the makers is expected very soon.

The first part of the film captures the life of Dhanush’s character from age 15 to 30. Vetrimaaran said Dhanush’s effort for the film is unparalleled, and that he had to do two commercial films to raise funds for this project. Apparently, Dhanush had set aside 200 days to shoot three parts of the film.

Produced on a lavish budget of Rs 60 crore, Vetrimaaran said that despite knowing that his market value as a director is around Rs 45 crore, Dhanush had no qualms producing the film on a high budget. The film also stars Andrea, Aishwarya Rajesh, Daniel Balaji and Ameer in pivotal roles. Having recently wrapped up the shoot of the first part in the trilogy, Dhanush is currently busy shooting for Maari 2.

From September, he’s expected to commence work on his second directorial which is rumoured to also star Akkineni Nagarjuna.
