Tamil superstar Dhanush's gangster drama film Vada Chennai, the first part of the planned trilogy, went on the floors here on Wednesday.
Dhanush wrote on his Twitter page:
The film, which will be produced by Lyca Productions and Wunderbar Films, will track 30 years in the life of a gangster.
The makers will film the first schedule in a large prison set in Binny Mills.
Dhanush is said to have set aside 200 days to shoot this project, which marks his third time collaboration with Vetrimaaran.
It also stars Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Andrea Jeremiah, Samuthirakani and Daniel Balaji.
