Fans of national award-winning actor Dhanush, who plays the lead role in his upcoming sequel to his 2015 hit film Velaiyilla Pattathari, wonder as to what significance the talented actor would have in his role in the film which is full of stars.
Success of Velaiyilla Pattathari was a huge bonus for Dhanush who had been writhing under back-to-back failures in the form of Naiyaandi and Maryaan. The low-budget film, produced by Dhanush himself and helmed by debutant Velraj (cinematographer), struck an immediate emotional chord with millions of movie-goers as well as youths who were either unemployed or were forced to take up professions which were not in tune with their educational/technical qualification.
Velaiyilla Pattathari sequel, however, is not directed by Velraj but by Soundarya Rajinikanth, Dhanush’s sister-in-law. ‘Kalaipuli’ S. Thanu is the producer of the film which has music by Shaan Rolden. Amala Paul is repeated as Dhanush’s heroine in the film which also has Monal Gajjar and Bollywood’s mightily talented Kajol Devgn in significant roles.
Yet another frontline actress is said to be in talks to dance for an ‘item number’ song in the film which leaves Dhanush’s fans with the question of whether he would enough scope in the script to perform!
