After the dismal performance of Vishwaroopam 2, it looks like actor-filmmaker-politician Kamal Haasan won’t hang his boots without a fight. While it has already been confirmed that Haasan will soon join hands with Shankar for Indian 2, which is expected to start rolling towards the end of this year or early 2019, reports emerged over the weekend that he has announced a sequel to his cult hit Thevar Magan.

The announcement has taken everybody by surprise, including his fans who can’t seem to contain their excitement. However, one wonders if the project will take off, given the actor’s recent decision to plunge into full-time politics. 

Kamal made the announcement about Thevar Magan 2 when asked his upcoming project at 'Kelvikenna Bathil', a television chat show that was held in Salem. Thevar Magan, released in 1992, was directed by Bharathan and it starred late Sivaji Ganesan, Kamal Haasan, Gauthami, Nasser, Revathy and Vadivelu in crucial roles.

The story revolves around two warring brothers and how their fight against each other affects the villages they stay in.  The film won five national awards and featured music by Ilayaraja.

Interestingly, this will be the third sequel for Haasan in a row after Vishwaroopam 2 and Indian 2. Not long ago, the news about Indian 2 was announced in Tamil Bigg Boss. There are also reports that Kamal might revive Sabash Naidu, the spin-off based on the character Balram Naidu  in the 2008 hit film Dasavatharam which had Kamal playing 10 different characters.

The project went on the floors couple of years ago and the team even shot a schedule in the US. Following an unfortunate incident where Haasan fell from his office stairs and sprained his leg, the project was put on the back-burner.
