It seems the news on Vetrimaran's Vada Chennai refuses to die, as the film has continued to hit the headlines despite being in cold storage for over a year now. Of late, there were buzz that the film was put on the back burner, as the director went ahead with another project featuring Dhanush. But Vetri has denied it claiming that the project has not been dropped.
Speaking to a daily, Vetrimaran has said that he would do Vada Chennai with Silambarasan aka Simbu in the lead. The filmmaker claims that he is currently busy writing script for Dhanush's next project and it is an entirely different kind of story. The upcoming project will take off in October, which means the delayed film is pushed for at least next 12 months.
Recently, Dhayanidhi, who was supposed to produce the film, announced, “Due to unavoidable reasons we are postponing the shoot of Vada Chennai. In the meantime, Cloud Nine Movies joins with the magic combo of Vetrimaaran and Dhanush... Hoping to produce another awesome movie...”
The delay of Vada Chennai was largely put on Silambarasan, who left to the US for his international album Love Anthem, thereby making the makers of the film to wait for his arrival. Adding to that Rana Daggubati's decision to opt out of the film came as a blow for the film.
