Dhanush-Hansika Motwani starrer Mappillai, a remake of Tamil superstar Rajinikanth’s yesteryear blockbuster with the same title, is all set to grace theatres on April 8.
Mappillai is directed by Sooraj, who earlier made Dhanush’s Padikadhavan. Mappillai will have the same team of technicians as Padikadhavan working together. Mani Sharma scores music while Venkatesh cranks the camera. Shiyaji Shinde is the villain.
The film also marks the Kollywood comeback of Manisha Koirala, who will play the role of Dhanush's mother-in-law.
