Speaking about his role in ‘Maari’ and why it is his favourite movie Dhanush had told BT in an interview, “My favourite is a Tamil film, ‘Maari’, that I did a couple of years ago. I played a notorious don, who beats up everybody and bosses them around. However, there was certain silliness and playfullness about him. We all have some notions about gangsters, but this film broke all such stereotypes. I wore shirts with flower pat terns and John Lennon sun glasses.” (ALSO READ: Vada Chennai actors Dhanush, Ameer, Samuthirakani to sport multiple looks in the film)
