It was recently announced that Mysskin and Vishal will reunite for the sequel to their highly successful Tamil crime thriller, Thupparivaalan. Not long ago, Mysskin met Vishal at Cappadocia in Turkey where he was shooting for Sundar C’s upcoming film, Action.

A picture from their meeting was shared by Vishal’s publicist on social media and it immediately went viral. The latest update is that Mysskin is in London scouting locations for Thupparivaalan 2, and pictures from the filmmaker’s visit to the Sherlock Holmes museum in London have gone viral. In a statement, Mysskin’s publicist confirmed he’s London scouting locations for his next project.

In Thupparivaalan, Vishal played a detective called Kaniyan Poogundran, modeled after Sherlock Holmes. Actor Prasanna played his sidekick, a character very close to Sherlock’s partner Dr Watson.

Even before the film’s release, Vishal confirmed he will be reuniting with Mysskin for the sequel. Soon after its release, Thupparivaalan was panned by a section of critics and audience for being heavily inspired by Sherlock Holmes.

Mysskin had said only his lead characters were inspired by Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. “Everyone gets inspired from something or the other. Edgar Allen Poe came up with the first detective story and then came Sherlock Holmes. There is a thin line between inspiration and plagiarism,” Mysskin had said in a statement.

“My story has nothing related to Sherlock Holmes or other detective movies. Thupparivaalan has anecdotes from Subramaniya Bharathi, Mahatma Gandhi; there is love, friendship and ego. This is something I always wanted to write,” he added.

It has already been confirmed that Prasanna will return to play his character from the first part. The rest of the casting, however, is yet to be finalised for Thupparivaalan 2. A source close to Vishal confirmed that the film will be produced by the actor and will roll from November after the completion of Sundar C’s project.
