Tamizh Padam 2, the sequel to the first film which released in 2010, is already making people laugh with the hilarious promos done by the team.
Directed by CS Amudhan, the first film was a satirical take on popular trends and tropes in Tamil cinema. Keeping in line with the theme, the latest promo for the sequel appears to be taking a dig at Shankar's 2.O (among other films) which has been postponed several times.
Director Venkat Prabhu tweeted the 'reason' behind the delay in Tamizh Padam 2's release. The 'press release' says that because the film requires extensive CGI work in order to make the lead actors look good.
While the CGI work for the hero's 'biceps and shoulder' has been outsourced to a studio in LA, California, the work for the heroine's 'wrinkle-removal and under eye' has gone to a studio in Amsterdam, says the release. And yes, the overused term 'magnum opus' has not escaped the team!

Earlier in the day, Amudhan had announced that Venkat Prabhu would release the 'first look of the press release' which would reveal the delay in his film's release. Clearly, a jibe at Kollywood's penchant for releasing 'first look' promos incessantly.
