Dhanush has been one of the most gifted talents from the South Indian film Industry that Bollywood surely cherishes with the release of each of his films. In and as Maaran in his latest film, Dhanush dons the role of a moody, violent but well-known journalist. His character sketch arcs as a superstar journalist who is known for his violent strikes and one of the scenes from the trailer left a lasting impression where he is seen piercing the tip of a ballpoint pen through a sack of goods. The film also has Malavika Mohanan as the bubbly female lead opposite Dhanush. Together they take on the world as they head towards an adventure of revealing questionable truth that makes the powerless go meek.
Recently with the release of the trailer, Malavika shared a tweet, saying, “Happy Valentine’s Day from us to you! #Maaran. See you soon on isdisneyplusHSTam, “the 28-year-old actor wrote.”
Written and directed by Karthick Naren, produced by TG Thyagarajan, Sendhil Thyagarajan, and Arjun Thyagarajan of Sathya Jyothi Films – the film is slated to release on March 11 on Disney + Hotstar. It is a multilingual film that will be released in Tamil, Malayalam, Telugu, and Kannada. The stellar cast also includes Samuthirakani, Smruthi Venkat, Krishnakumar Balasubramanian, and Mahendran.
Dhanush was last seen in Atrangi Re opposite Sara Ali Khan which had also had a direct-to-digital release on Disney + Hotstar. Maaran is his first project post his divorce from Aishwarya Rajinikanth. The duo gracefully parted ways as they shared the news on their official handles, the post said – “18 years of togetherness as friends, couple, as parents and well-wishers to each other. The journey has been of growth, understanding, adjusting, and adapting. Today we stand at a place where our paths separate. Aishwaryaa and I have decided to part ways as a couple and take time to understand us as individuals for the better. “
