Varalaxmi Sarathkumar’s role in last year’s sleeper hit Sathya, a Tamil remake of Telugu hit Kshanam, came up for much praise.

It has already been revealed that Varalaxmi Sarath Kumar, last seen playing a pivotal role in last year’s sleeper hit Sathya, plays a crucial role in Dhanush’s Maari 2. The latest update is that she plays a grey character and the makers are keeping it a secret. However, Varalaxmi has clarified that she plays a powerful and it isn’t necessarily grey.

Talking to Deccan Chronicle, she said: “I never told anyone that I am playing a grey character. It’s a powerful role and that’s it.” After playing a slightly grey-shaded character in last year’s suspense drama Sathya, Tamil remake of Telugu film Kshanam, Varalaxmi will be seen in a full-length negative character in Vishal’s Sandakozhi 2. After being cast in Sandakozhi, she was signed for Maari 2 and everybody automatically assumed she might be playing another negative character.

In Maari 2, Malayalam actor Tovino Thomas plays the antagonist. The film marks his Tamil debut and he’s really looking forward to the release because this opportunity will establish his market in Kollywood. Being directed by Balaji Mohan, Maari 2 also stars Sai Pallavi as the leading lady and she teams up with Dhanush for the first time.
