One of the landmark films in Dhanush-Selvaraghavanâ€™s career will be Pudhupettai, which was released in 2006. Since then, the fans of both the star as well as the director have been waiting for a sequel to it.
When Selvaraghavan was asked about it in an event, he refused to answer. Much later, some fans got an opportunity to ask Dhanush about the sequel to which he had replied that it is very much on cards. Story discussions for Pudhupettai 2 are on and details will be revealed later, the award-winning actor had said.
Pudhupettai was a gangster flick that was written and directed by Selvaraghavan. The film has Sonia Agarwal and Sneha playing the female leads. Yuvan Shankar Raja composed some chart busting numbers for this film with cinematography handled by Selvaraghavan and Kola Bhaskar editing it.
The film was bankrolled by K Muralidharan, V Swaminathan and G Venugopal under the banner Lakshmi Movie Makers on a budget of Rs 10 crores and went on to earn Rs 15 crores at the box office.
Dhanush, meanwhile, is busy with a slew of films on hands including Enai Nokki Paayum Thotta, which is slated to release in the coming months, and Asuran.
ENPT is a romantic action thriller written, directed and co-produced by Gautham Vasudev Menon. The film has Dhanush and Megha Akash in the lead roles with Sunaina and Sasikumar in pivotal roles.
Rana Daggubati will be making a cameo appearance in the film along with the director Gautham Menon. Santhosh Krishna will be playing the main villain in Enai Nokki Paayum Thotta.
