Dhanush is known for juggling between two or more films at the same time and it looks like it is that time of the year for the star actor as he will soon be working in two films simultaneously.
Even as his film with director Velraj, which is tentatively titled as VIP 2,
is in its post production mode, Dhanush will begin shooting for
Prabhu Solomon's yet to be titled flick and Vetrimaran's
While the shooting for Prabhu Solomon's movie is expected to
begin by the end of this month, Vetrimaran's Vada
Chennai will take off from October, according to a
This effectively means that Dhanush will be shooting for two
films at the same time. But what's really fascinating is the report
that the Aadukalam director has already penned the sequel
to Vada Chennai.
Which means, Vada Chennai will follow the latest
trend of dividing a story into two parts. Films like Kamal Haasan's
Vishwaroopam and SS Rajamouli's Baahubali

Why Divide A Movie?
In the olden days, an average run time of a movie would range
from three to three and a half hours but today the length of movies
has reduced with an average run time of two and a half hours. Hence
filmmakers are left with no options but to segregate a movie into
two or more parts if the entire story cannot be narrated in two
hours or so.
Box Office Gain
If the first part of such movies goes on to become a hit and if
it leaves the audience guessing about its sequel, then chances are
that second part too might go on to become a box office hit. This
theory could prove itself correct if Vishwaroopam 2 and
Baahubali 2 gains box office success.
More On Vada Chennai
Samantha, who is playing Dhanush's wife in 'VIP 2' would pair up
with the National Award winning actor yet again for Vada
Chennai. Anirudh is most likely to be signed in as the film's
Vada Chennai Release Date
Even before the release of Maari, Dhanush had confirmed
that the team of Vada Chennai is planning to release
the movie in 2016. He had also said that the story of this film was
narrated to him during the shoot of Polladhavan.
Simbu's Loss Is Dhanush's Gain
Vetrimaran had initially zeroed in on Simbu to be Vada
Chennai's main protagonist. But when the film failed to take
off for various reasons, the project was temporarily dropped before
it was revived with Dhanush in the lead.
Dhanush's Villain In Prabhu Solomon's Project
It was recently reported that Gujarati girl Pooja Jhaveri will
play the role of an antagonist in Dhanush's next being directed by
Prabhu Solomon of Mynaa and Kumki fame.
This film sure promises to be an unique flick in which the story
unfolds inside a train.
