Filmmaker Hari and Vikram are reuniting for the sequel to their highly successful 2003 blockbuster Saamy. With the project slated to go on the floors later this year, the makers are busy finalising the rest of the cast. While Trisha from the first part has been retained, the recent addition to the team is Keerthy Suresh, and she will apparently be playing the main lead. Trisha, according to reliable sources, will only be part of the film for 15-20 minutes.
â€śTrisha will only appear for approximately 20 minutes. She will be replaced by Keerthy, who was signed on recently after the makers were impressed with her career graph and her ability to act as well. She will finish her Pawan Kalyan project and join the sets of Saamy 2, most likely from July or August,â€ť a source said.
Having teamed up with leading heroes such as Vijay, Suriya and Pawan Kalyan, the Remo actress is on a roll and is currently the toast of the town. It is not sure whether Vikram will retain the same look for the sequel or will undergo a makeover.
Speaking at the audio launch of Iru Mugan last year, Hari said that he had plans to make Saamy 2 much earlier but things somehow didnâ€™t fall in place. He even said that the sequel will be bigger than the first part, both in terms of scale and vision.
