National Award wining director Vetri Maaran will begin shooting with Dhanush for his long pending Vada Chennai from June 15 in the city.
“A huge set that resembles the Central jail has been erected in the city for the shoot. Some major portions of the first schedule will be canned on this set,” sources said.
While there have been rumours that actor Vijay Sethupathi and Jiiva have been roped in to essay important roles, the sources say otherwise.
“The project so far only features Dhanush and Samantha Ruth Prabhu. Contrary to the rumours, Vijay and Jiiva have not been signed on. But this story has scope to include multiple stars,” they state.
This project was supposed to start last year, but because Vetri Maaran and Dhanush were busy with their prior commitments, they couldn’t come together last year.
The film, which will be jointly produced by Dhanush and Vetrimaaran, will chronicle 30 years in the life of a gangster.
