Gautham Vasudev Menon, Simbu and AR Rahman, the popular trio from Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya and Achcham Yenbathu Madamaiyada, are all set to join hands for a project. The news emerged earlier this week on social media and it is yet unknown if the project has been officially signed.
A picture featuring Simbu, Gautham Menon and Rahman has been doing the rounds on social media. Ever since the picture got leaked, fans have been going gaga over the reunion. Could this project be the sequel to Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya which Gautham confirmed not very ago in a television interview?
In a recent video interview, Gautham confirmed that he will rejoin hands with Simbu for the sequel. Not long ago, Gautham had also said that he plans to make the sequel with R Madhavan, however, the plan didnâ€™t materialize.
The latest update is that Anushka Shetty is likely to play Simbuâ€™s love interest in this sequel. According to the latest industry grapevine, Gautham Menon has convinced Anushka to be part of Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya 2 and the latter is expected to give her nod very soon.
Menon had signed Anushka for a multi-starrer project which never took off, and hence, has approached her with an offer to work in his next project.
In another earlier interview, Menon had said that the sequel will follow events eight years after Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya in its protagonist Karthikâ€™s life. â€śThisâ€™ll be a story of four friends who meet and decide to go to the US for their fifth friendâ€™s wedding. Itâ€™s not a Hangover type movie but itâ€™ll be light-hearted. Maddy has agreed to come on board and heâ€™ll be reprising Karthikâ€™s role which was originally played by Simbu. We are in the process of finalising someone from Telugu soon,â€ť Menon said.
However, the sequel most likely wonâ€™t happen this year as Simbu has signed four new projects. Simbu's next film is political thriller Manaadu with Venkat Prabhu. He also has the Tamil remake of Telugu blockbuster Attarintiki Daredi.
