It is now official that silambarasan aka STR and director Vetrimaaran will get together for 'Vada Chennai' which will be produced by Dhayanidhi Alagiri under the Cloud Nine Movies banner. However 'Vada Chennai' seems to be only the working title of the movie and the project might see a name change later.
Confirming this, Simbu said, "I am happy to announce an untitled movie with National Award winner Vetrimaaran and Cloud Nine Movies. It's a gangster movie and will be a first of its kind in my career. Shooting starts from March 2012".
'Vada Chennai', director Vetrimaran's next project after the National Award winning 'Aadukalam', will bring together two hot and happening personalities of Kollywood and Tollywood. They are STR aka Simbu and Rana Daggubati.
Rana Daggubati who is carving a pan India image for himself will be seen in an important role in the film. Andrea Jeremiah will play a pivotal role as well however the hunt for the lead lady is still on. GV Prakash will score the music.
It is said that the movie will be an action entertainer set in the backdrop of North Chennai. Remember Vetrimaran is known for his penchant towards the northern parts of the metropolis and his debut film 'Polladhavan' was set in the backdrop of the same area.
