SIR/Vaathi is set amid a college backdrop and the visual ambience of the film in the announcement video, filled with nostalgia, had caught the attention of many. The release date of the film has not been announced so far.
Talking about Dhanush, the actor was recently seen in Aanand L Rai’s Atrangi Re which also starred Sara Ali Khan and Akshay Kumar. In the movie, while Rinku (Sara) loves Sajjad (Akshay), she was made to marry Vishu (Dhanush) forcibly. Interestingly, Vishu also loves somebody else and therefore he decides to part ways with Rinku once Sajjad, who is in Africa, comes back to India. However, destiny has something else written for them.
