Mercurial Vetrimaaran, basking in the box-office glory of his latest directorial venture Visaranai (which he also co-produced along with Dhanush), has informed the press that he would commence the shoot of his upcoming film Vada Chennai in May.
Vada Chennai was earlier to star Simbu in the lead but Vetrimaaran confirmed that Dhanush would be essaying the lead role, his third Vetrimaaran film after Polladhavan and Aadukalam. Samantha and Andrea Jeremiah have been finalized to play Dhanush’s heroine sin the film.
In the meantime, Dhanush said that he would be starring in Gautham Vasudev Menon’s Ennai Nokki Paayum Thotta and in a Hollywood venture. This put to question whether the shoot of Vada Chennai would commence as per schedule with some sections of the press reporting that the shoot of the film would commence only by the end of the year.
Setting to rest all such speculations, Vetrimaaran has said that he would be launching the shoot of Vada Chennai as per schedule in May. To be made as a 2-part sequel, Andrea plays a call-girl while Samantha plays a typical slum-bred girl.
