Binu S who made 'Ithihasa' would also direct the sequel, which appears to follow the 'magical' thread in the first film, involving a pair of rings.

There is going to be a sequel to the film Ithihasa, which had released four years ago, and was a massive hit at the time. According to reports, director Binu S, who made Ithihasa, would direct the sequel too, and Indrajith Sukumaran would play the lead role. The rest of the cast and crew are yet to be revealed.

Ithihasa had been the first directorial of Binu, and he brought with him a bunch of new actors in the cast.  The film was a fantasy comedy, that seemed to be an adaptation of the 2002 Hollywood film The Hot Chick. In place of  a teenage girl and criminal in the English film, the Malayalam movie revolved around a female software engineer and a petty thief. They both unwittingly wear one each of a pair of rings with magical powers which results in their bodies getting swapped. The sequence of events that follows are told hilariously.

From the title poster of the sequel, which also has a ring, it appears that the director may continue the thread.

Ithihasa saw actors Anusree, Shine Tom Chacko, Swapna Menon, Balu Varghese, and Divya Prabha in the cast. Deepak Dev had scored the music for this venture while Sinoj P. Ayyappan had cranked the camera and Jovin John had edited it. The film was produced by Rajesh Augustine and Arun Sol under the banner ARK Media. Made on a budget of Rs. 2.5 crore, Ithihasa collected Rs. 4.35 crore at the box office.

Indrajith is currently busy with the Malayalam film Lucifer, which is being directed by his sibling, actor Prithviraj. He plays an important role in it and is sharing screen space with actors Mohanlal, Manju Warrier, Tovino Thomas, Vivek Oberoi and Mamta Mohandas. Lucifer is slated for release in April next year and the shooting is currently in progress.
