Dhanush and Sai Pallavi's viral hit song 'Rowdy Baby' (from Maari 2) has become the title of a new Tamil film that was officially launched this morning (October 6). The shooting of the film commenced today after the pooja and the first schedule is expected to take place for the next few weeks. Rowdy Baby will feature Hansika Motwani in the lead role and this will be her next film as the solo lead after Maha. The main cast and crew of the film took part in the launch ceremony and pictures from the event are now doing rounds on social media. Produced by Ramesh P Pillai under the banner of Abhishek Films, this new film will have music scored by Sam CS.

Debutant JM Raja Saravanan will be wielding the megaphone for Rowdy Baby which will have cinematography by P Chelladurai and editing by Deepak S Dwaraknath. Vairamuthu will be penning the lyrics for the songs in the album. The star cast of Rowdy Baby features several other prominent actors including the likes of Sathyaraj, Meena, Ramki, Soniya Aggarwal, Lakshmi Rai, and others. John Kokken who impressed one and all with his performance as Vembuli in the critically acclaimed super hit film, Sarpatta Parambarai, will also be seen playing a crucial role in this film.

From what we see, it looks like Rowdy Baby will be an interesting film to watch out for. Hansika is currently awaiting the release of Maha which happens to be the actress's 50th film. Maha is directed by debutant UR Jameel and has music composed by Ghibran. The film will have Silambarasan TR playing an extended cameo and his combination scenes with Hansika are said to be one of the major highlights of the movie. The film is also expected to showcase Hansika in a completely different dimension. For now, check out the latest official announcement on Hansika's new film, Rowdy Baby here:
