Dhanush and Yuvan have worked in films like Thulluvatho Ilamai and Kadhal Kondein in the past.

It is already known that Dhanush and director Balaji Mohan are joining hands again for the sequel to their Tamil film Maari. It has already been announced that the film will also star Sai Pallavi, Krishna and Tovino Thomas, who will play the antagonist. Ever since the sequel was announced, one question that everybody has been asking about is whether the project will mark the reunion of Dhanush and composer Anirudh Ravichander. Having worked together in films such as 3, VIP and Thangamagan, the duo had a fallout post Maari and stopped working together. Amidst rumours that they might rejoin for Maari 2, it has been learnt that Dhanush has opted for Yuvan Shankar Raja.

Son of maestro Ilayaraja, the collaboration of Yuvan and Dhanush goes back films such as Thulluvatho Ilamai and Kadhal Kondein. They last worked together in 2008 film Yaaradi Nee Mohini, a remake of Telugu film Aadavari Matalaku Arthale Verule. While an official confirmation is awaited from the makers, sources close to the team have confirmed the news. It’ll be an interesting combination to look forward to as the duo has given several chartbusters over the years.

In Maari 2, Dhanush will return as a dhoti-clad, mustache twirling local rowdy. Actors Robo Shankar and Vinod, who played Dhanush’s sidekicks, have been retained in the sequel. It has also been confirmed that the film, to be bankrolled by Wunderbar Films, will be made as a bilingual and will be simultaneously shot in Tamil and Telugu.
