National award-winning actor Dhanush’s upcoming film Velaiilla Pattathari 2 is all set to release in more than 1,500 halls across the world in its Tamil and Telugu versions.
Sequel to the 2015 hit film Velaiyilla Pattathari, the film has Dhanush, Kajol Devgn, Amala Paul, Ritu Varma, Saranya , Vivek, Hrishikesh, Samuthirakani, Meera Krishnan and Raiza Wilson (of Bigg Boss fame) in lead roles. The film, which was to release on 28th July on Dhanush’s birthday, faced a last-minute hiccup and is now releasing this Friday (11th August) in theatres across Tamil Nadu and elsewhere.
Sean Roldan has scored the music of the film which is cinematographed by Sameer Thahir. GK Prasanna has edited the film which has its story, screenplay and dialogues penned by Dhanush himself. His sister-in-law Soundarya Rajinikanth has directed the film while ‘Kalaipuli’ S. Thanu has produced it in association with Dhanush’s Wunderbar Films.
For the first time in Dhanush’s 15-year long film career, a film starring him in the lead is getting released in more than 1,500 halls the world over. It may be noted that Dhanush has already entered the Rs.100 crore club when his debut Bollywood film Raanjhanaa collected more than Rs.100 crores a few years back. Dhanush, however, counts a lot on the success of Velaiilla Pattathari 2 to make it a Rs.100-crore collecting film!
