Filmmaker Gautham Vasudev Menon and Ajith teamed up in 2015 for action-thriller Yennai Arindhaal. Despite the film’s not so great run at the box-office, critics lauded Gautham’s work and his efforts to showcase Ajith’s acting prowess.

In a recent interview with Sun TV, Menon revealed that he has plans for a sequel to Yennai Arindhaal. “In the next five months, I plan to approach Ajith sir with a bound script for Yennai Arindhaal 2. Let’s see what happens” Gautham said.

Yennai Arindhaal marked the end of Menon’s police trilogy of films that include Suriya’s Kaaka Kaakha and Kamal Haasan’s Vettaiyaadu Villayadu. It has to be seen if the sequel will materialize in the near future because Ajith’s next film Viswasam is with Siva and there’s no information yet regarding his subsequent projects.

Menon, on the other hand, is struggling to wrap up two projects – Dhanush’s Enai Noki Paayum Thota and Vikram’s Dhruva Natchathiram – which are stuck at various junctures of production.

Menon also has the highly-anticipated multi-starrer Ondraga in his kitty. This will unite stars from all the four southern industries. It has so far been confirmed that Prithviraj, Puneeth Rajkumar, Anushka Shetty and Tamannaah Bhatia are already on board.

The project was supposed to take off last year but for reasons unknown, it never went to the sets. Amid rumours that the project has been shelved, reports emerged from Gautham's camp that the project will roll from next year.

"The project was never shelved but it had to be postponed because all the four stars were not available at the time when it was planned to be shot. The shoot will finally commence from mid next year. Simbu and Sai Dharam Tej will be the two other stars but they're yet to officially come on board. Two more heroines have to be finalized and we can expect the whole cast and crew to be locked by this year-end," a source from the film's unit told TNM.
