The Nayanthara starrer Aramm was one of the biggest hits in her career. This heroine-centric film, which was directed by Gopi Nainar, was released a couple of years ago. Since then, there have been speculations that the director may go ahead with a sequel. 

So, when the announcement came that Gopi Nainar will be associating with Samantha Akkineni for a new project, rumours started off that the sequel will star Samantha instead of Nayan.

But, the director has refuted it outright in an interview to In.com. He has said, “Talks have been on and discussions are happening. But, it is not the sequel of Aramm. This is a fresh script and it is a women-centric film. Aramm 2 will happen only with Nayanthara and no one else. She is very busy right now, so that project will take some time to shape up.”

In Aramm, Nayan played a district collector. Kotapadi J Rajesh bankrolled the film under his banner KJR Films. Ghibran had composed music for this film with Om Prakash being its cinematographer and Gopi Krishna editing it. The star cast of Aramm includes the Kakka Muttai fame Vignesh and Ramesh, Sunu Lakshmi, Vinodhini Vaidyanathan, Ramachandran Durairaj and PV Anandakrishnan.

While Aramm 2 is still in the initial stages, the director is busy making a film with Bobby Simha in the lead. Reports are that he will be making a biopic on the tribal leader Birsa Munda very soon.

In the meantime, Nayanthara will be completing the Vijay starrer Bigil, directed by Atlee Kumar in addition to the AR Murugadoss directorial Darbar in which she pairs up with the Superstar Rajinikanth. Besides these Tamil biggies, she will also be seen in the Telugu magnum opus Sye Raa and the Malayalam film Love Action Drama.
