Soori at Ippadai Vellum Press Meet

Vetrimaaran may work with actor and comedian Soori for an upcoming film. The director is currently busy with the final stages of shoot for Dhanush and Manju Warrier-starrer Asuran.

Vetrimaaran told Silverscreen that he cannot comment on his next project yet. However, according to a report by India Today, Vetrimaaran has met Soori, who is likely to give his nod. The film will be backed by Elred Kumar for RS Infotainment, the producers of Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya and Yamirukka Bayamen.

With this project, Soori is the next comedian to turn hero after Vadivelu, Santhanam and Yogi Babu, among others. He was recently seen in Vennila Kabaddi Kuzhu 2 and has director Vijay Chander’s Sanga Tamizhan under production.

Meanwhile, the shoot for Vetrimaaran’s Asuran is nearing completion. Dhanush, who stars in a double role as father and son in the film, recorded one of the songs titled ‘Polladha Bhoomi’ last month, and tweeted saying it was a peppy track.

Composer GV Prakash has reportedly completed work on the music for the film. A teaser is expected to release on July 28, on Dhanush’s birthday.

Dhanush and Vetrimaaran will also soon resume work on Vada Chennai 2. There were reports that the film was shelved due to opposition from the residents of North Chennai, where the film is set. However, both the actor and director confirmed that the news was false.

Vetrimaaran has announced a prequel to Vada Chennai titled Rajan Vagaira. The story will revolve around actor Ameer’s character Rajan, and may release as a web series on a digital platform. More details about the project are awaited.

Meanwhile, Dhanush has said that he will reunite with his brother, director Selvaraghavan, for a movie. He has also signed a project with director Karthik Subbaraj, co-starring Aishwarya Lekshmi.  The first look and details of this film may release on Dhanush’s birthday.
