According to sources in the industry, Vada Chennai will be the costliest film in Dhanush’s career. “The first schedule of Vada Chennai cost us more than the entire budget of Visaaranai”, said director Vetrimaaran in a recent interview.
Vetrimaaran has also explained why the project got delayed. “I was the one who asked Dhanush to give me more time as we were getting ready for Oscar nomination process of Visaaranai. Any other producer wouldn’t have allowed me but Dhanush was magnanimous enough and started working on his other two projects “, said Vetrimaaran.
Recently Dhanush has resumed the shoot of Vada Chennai in the outskirts of Chennai city. Touted to be a gangster trilogy, Vada Chennai has Samuthirakani, Andrea and Amala Paul in important roles.
Vada Chennai is being jointly produced by Dhanush’s Wunderbar Films and Lyca Productions.
