The first single from Dhanush's upcoming film Maari 2 was released on Thursday. The song titled Rowdy Baby is a slow but peppy song composed by musician Yuvan Shankar Raja. In addition to writing the lyrics, Dhanush has sung it together with Dhee.
Multi-page Prabhudheva has choreographed the steps for the fun song. The song will contain Sai Pallavi-matching steps with Dhanush. "… very happy to join hands with @dhanushkraja we had so much fun working on this track (sic)," tweeted Yuvan while sharing the song.
Maari 2 is the sequel to Dhanush's 2015 mobster drama Maari. Director Balaji Mohan has helmeted the upcoming film. The film is currently in the post-production stage.
Actors Robo Shankar and Vinod, who played Dhanush's sidekicks in the first part, have been retained for the sequel. Dhanush will share the screen room with Tovino Thomas for the first time. Interestingly, Dhanush had produced his first Malayalam movie Tharangam last year with Tovino in the lead role. The upcoming film will also star Varalakshmi Sarathkumar and Kreshna in pivotal roles.
Dhanush will soon join the National Award winning film maker Vetrimaaran next. After completing the project, Dhanush and Vetrimaaran will start working on the second part of critically acclaimed Vada Chennai.
