Actor Regina Cassandra, who is basking in the success of Telugu thriller Evaru, is said to have been signed for a crucial role in Vishalâ€™s Irumbu Thirai 2, which also stars Shraddha Srinath as an army officer. While the makers are yet to make an official announcement, reliable sources have confirmed that she has already given her nod for the project. Vishal is bankrolling the sequel which is expected to go on the floors later this year. The rest of the cast and crew are yet to be finalised.
Irumbu Thirai, which released last year, was a cyber-thriller that featured Vishal and Arjun in the lead roles. The sequel is being directed by Anand, an erstwhile assistant of director Ezhil. Vishal will also soon work on the sequel to Thupparivaalan with filmmaker Mysskin.
Both of them met recently at Cappadocia in Turkey where Vishal was shooting for the Sundar C directorial. Apparently, discussions were held regarding Thupparivaalan 2, slated go on the floors later this year. Vishal has confirmed that the film will be produced by him and will roll from November after the completion of pending commitments.
Recently, Mysskin was in London scouting locations for Thupparivaalan 2, and pictures from the filmmakerâ€™s visit to the Sherlock Holmes museum in London went viral. In a statement, Mysskinâ€™s publicist confirmed heâ€™s in 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 Sherlockâ€™s partner Dr Watson. Vishal confirmed he will be reuniting with Mysskin for the sequel even before the release of Thupparivaalan. Vishal also has Sundar Câ€™s Action in the pipeline. The film also stars Tamannaah Bhatia and Aishwarya Lekshmi as the leading ladies.
