Earlier in an interview given to a leading online media, director Karthick Naren had stated that Maaran will get a theatre release. The young filmmaker had also suggested that the Dhanush starrer is exclusively made for the big screens. So, the reports regarding the OTT release of the project have left both the Dhanush fans and Tamil cinema-goers, equally shocked.
In his interview, Karthick Naren had also revealed that Dhanush is playing an investigative journalist in Maaran. According to the filmmaker, the movie is a complete commercial thriller, which mainly depicts the role a journalist plays in society. At the same time, the movie also revolves around the deep bonding between a brother-sister duo. The director revealed that the Dhanush starter is not an out-and-out genre-based movie, that goes overboard with the commercial elements.
Malavika Mohanan appears as the female lead opposite Dhanush in Maaran. The Karthick Naren directorial marks the Tamil debut of the acclaimed Malayalam scriptwriter duo Sharfu and Suhaas, who has scripted some popular films including Virus and Fahadh Faasil starrer Varathan. GV Prakash Kumar has composed the music for the project. Maaran is bankrolled by the prestigious banner Sathya Jyothi Films.
