Vada Chennai, the Dhanush starrer directed by Vetrimaaran which hit the theaters in 2018, is one of the most acclaimed Tamil films of recent times. The gangster thriller, which marked Dhanush’s sixth collaboration with Vetrimaaran, was originally planned as a trilogy. Now, the filmmaker has revealed a very exciting update about the sequel of Vada Chennai.
In a recent interview, Vetrimaaran revealed that Vada Chennai 2 might go the OTT way and get released as a web series. According to the director, he is considering the possibilities of making a series that will have 2 seasons, as there is enough content. It might not be possible to narrate the entire story in a single feature film.
However, Vetrimaaran has also added that Vada Chennai 2 might not happen anytime soon. The director is planning to finish all his current commitments before beginning the works of the Dhanush starrer. This means that it will take at least a couple of years for the highly anticipated project to go on floors.
The National award-winning filmmaker is currently working on an anthology film for NetFlix. The movie, which is said to be having four segments will bring together some of the finest talents of the Tamil film industry including Vetrimaaran, Gautham Vasudev Menon, Vignesh Shivan, and Sudha Kongara. The segment which is helmed by the Vada Chennai maker will feature Prakash Raj and Sai Pallavi in the lead roles.
After finishing the untitled anthology, Vetrimaaran will begin the works of his upcoming Soori starrer, which is said to be based on the novel Ajnabi, written by Meeran Mitheen. After completing the Soori starrer, the filmmaker will collaborate with Suriya for a project titled Vaadivaasal, which is based on the popular novel of the same name, written by CS Chellappa.
