Watch Rowdy Baby from Maari 2 here:
2018's Maari 2 was the second instalment in Balaji Mohan's action-comedy series Maari. Dhanush reprised his role as an annoying goon in Maari 2 with Tovino Thomas playing the antagonist. To sum up Dhanush's role in Maari 2, he returned as the "naughtiest don." Sai Pallavi was cast as a rowdy rickshaw driver - Aanandhi - who is head over heels for Maari and addresses him as "Rowdy baby."
