Director AL Vijay has confirmed that he has plans to make a sequel to the Vijay starrer Thalaivaa, which released amidst controversies in 2013. While promoting his latest release Diya, a psychological horror thriller starring Sai Pallavi, Vijay told entertainment portal Behindwoods that Thalaivaa 2 is on the cards.

“Wherever I go, the only question that people ask me is when will I direct Thalaivaa 2? It is surprising to see so many people asking me that question over and over again. Vijay sir knows when to do a film like Thalaivaa 2. We have talked about it once, I have a story idea and I believe the movie will happen someday,” Vijay said.

Thalaivaa faced stiff political opposition during its release, courtesy the strong political undertones in the story. Threats from an unknown student group had warned of bomb attacks in theatres if the film was shown. The film released in Tamil Nadu, 11 days after its worldwide release. It featured Vijay as a gangster fighting for oppressed Tamils in Mumbai. 

Meanwhile, Vijay’s Diya has hit the screens. It explores the relationship between a mother and her unborn child. On taking up the subject of pregnancy and abortion, Vijay had told Firstpost in an interview: “It’s been my long-time desire to make a film on a social cause. I wrote the script of Diya way back in 2012 after I came across a survey that over 7 million abortions take place in a year. Over a staggering 50 percent of these abortions are unsafe. I was absolutely shocked when I read this and I wanted to address this issue through a story. That’s how the idea of Diya was born.”

Vijay’s next release would be the dance-based film Lakshmi, which features Prabhudheva in the titular role. The film marks the second time collaboration between Vijay and Prabhudheva after the horror-comedy Devi
