Dhanush’s home-production Thanga Magan, which is scheduled to release in theatres in Chennai and all over the State this Friday, has been awarded an ‘U’ certificate by the Regional Censor Board in Chennai.
Sequel to last year’s super-hit Dhanush-Amala Paul-Samuthirakani-Saranya starrer Velaiyilla Pattathaari, Thanga Magan has had three major changes in its cast.
Amala Paul has been replaced by not one but two heroines: Samantha and Amy Jackson, who had never starred with Dhanush in the past. Samuthirakani and Saranya have been replaced by K.S. Ravikumar and Radhika.
Cinematographer Velraj, who has forged a successful and close association with Dhanush, debuted as director with Velaiyilla Pattathari.
Dhanush, Velraj and music director Anirudh Ravichander come together for the second time for Thanga Magan which is scheduled to release in theatres on 18th December (Friday). Its Telugu-dubbed version Nava Manmathadu is also releasing simultaneously.
In what is considered as a ‘boost’ to the film’s pre-release billing, Thanga Magan has been awarded an ‘U’ certification by the Censors which means it could be viewed by school-going students below 18 years as well.
Incidentally enough, Amy Jackson and Samantha have been paired up opposite Vijay in his upcoming film Theri (to release next month) as well!
