After months of delay, the Dhanush-Vetrimaaran collaboration Vada Chennai began shooting recently.

The three-part ambitious project, based on a gangster's life, is believed to be inspired by a real life story and will be set in North Chennai.

Dhanush was to romance his Thanga Magan co-star Samantha in the film, but speculation is rife that Amala Paul is being considered for the part.
