Vikram's Saamy 2, a sequel to his 2004 blockbuster Saamy, has been on the floors for the last few months.

The project reunites Vikram with Hari after a long hiatus. The film originally starred Trisha, who played Vikram's heroine in the first part, in a crucial role. However, in October last year, she revealed that she is no longer part of the project and that she opted out due to creative differences. In a tweet, she confirmed her exit and wished the team good luck.

Trisha’s exit came as a shocker to the team which had to reschedule dates for the shoot. Following her exit, producer Shibu Thameens is said to have filed a complaint against her over "non-cooperation" with the Tamil Nadu Producers’ Council. Apparently, Thameens has given Trisha an ultimatum – either be part of the film or compensate for the alleged heavy losses incurred due to rescheduling of shooting dates.

Trisha is yet to officially comment on the issue. However, on Wednesday, she tweeted a picture which read – don’t care. She further wrote ‘yawn’. Many believe this is her response to the complaint.

Vikram returns as the foul-mouthed cop Aaru Saamy in the sequel, which also features Keerthy Suresh in the leading role. Apparently, the principal shooting began from last week and the makers plan to shoot the film across various locations such as Delhi, Noida, Agra, Jaipur, Nainital and Kathmandu among other places. The supporting cast includes Prabhu, Delhi Ganesh and Soori. Harris Jayaraj, who was originally roped in, was later replaced by Devi Sri Prasad as the composer for the film.

On his career front, Vikram awaits the release of Sketch, which is an out-and-out commercial flick and is slated to hit the screens on Friday. He plays a spy in Dhruva Natchathiram, which was originally planned with Suriya and later with Jayam Ravi. For Saamy 2, he sports a twirled mustache and has already been spotted shooting in smart formals.
