Filmmaker Mohan Raja, best known for helming films such as Thani Oruvan, Santosh Subramaniam and Velaikkaran, is equally popular for directing actor Vijay in Velayudham. For months, rumours have been doing the rounds that Raja is all set to reunite with Vijay for another project and at a recent college event in Chennai he confirmed the project is on.

However, the director didn’t spill any beans on when will the project materialise. Vijay is currently shooting for Atlee’s film tentatively titled Thalapathy 63. Mohan Raja, on the other hand, is expected to commence work on Thani Oruvan 2, which he announced making with his brother Jayam Ravi last August on the occasion of the third anniversary of Thani Oruvan.

Mohan Raja took to Twitter to announce that he and his brother are joining hands once again for Thani Oruvan 2, which is slated to go on the floors later this year. Raja shared the news about the project via a video and said that he’s excited to be teaming up with his brother.

In a recent media interaction, Raja said Thani Oruvan 2 was on his mind for the longest time. “Following the overwhelming response for Thani Oruvan, Ravi and I were certain that we didn’t want to do a sequel just for the heck of it. We had planned it as his Ravi’s 25th film, and hence, it took time to materialize.”

Raja had said in a statement that the sequel will be a thriller set against social backdrop. “Just like the first part, Thani Oruvan 2 will have similar premise of a social backdrop. It’ll be an engrossing cat and mouse thriller between the protagonist and antagonist.” He also confirmed that talks have been initiated with several actors for playing key roles in the film.
