After Sai Pallavi, Varalaxmi Is Also Now Part of Dhanush’s Maari 2

Actress Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, who has been exploring variety of roles in the past few releases of hers, has been included in a ‘pivotal’ role in national award-winning actor Dhanush’s upcoming film Maari 2.

Sequel to the 2015 hit film Maari which had Dhanush and Kajal Aggalrwal in the lead (not necessarily as the romantic couple), Maari 2 will again be helmed by Balajee Mohan, who made the prequel. As reported earlier, ‘Junior Maestro’ Yuvan Shankar Raja has replaced Anirudh Ravichander, the chart-busting music director of the prequel, as Dhanush and Anirudh don’t seem to have patched up as yet.

Sai Pallavi, the ‘darling’ of South Indian audiences who is to make her debut as an actress in Tamil films by playing the female protagonist in A.L. Vijay’s Karu, gets back to playing the heroine opposite frontline heroes by pairing up opposite the talented Dhanush for the first-time on screen. Another mightily talented heroine Varalaxmi Sarathkumar has also been wrapped up by the crew to play a pivotal role in the film.

“The Maari franchise welcomes the super-talented Varalaxmi Sarathkumar on board playing a solid pivotal role in Maari 2,” said an announcement by Maari 2 crew!
