One of the biggest blockbusters in Vishal's career is his 2005 film Sandakozhi, which gave his career a big boost and also helped its director Linguswamy to leave a mark in the commercial league. Twelve years later, its sequel finally got launched today after months of dilly-dallying and the makers will commence shooting from today.
The film reunites Vishal and Linguswamy after a decade and the pressure of delivering another blockbuster is riding on them. On Wednesday, the sequel was launched in the presence of the cast and crew.
A huge set has been erected in the outskirts of Chennai where most of the shooting will take place. Vishal and Raj Kiran, who played a crucial role in the first part, will return as soon and father in Sandakozhi 2, and it's believed both of them will shine together in action scenes.
Also starring Keerthy Suresh, the film will feature Varalaxmi Sarath Kumar as the antagonist and she will be seen in a never seen before avatar. Meera Jasmine who played the leading lady might return to do a cameo in this film, which will have a simultaneous dubbed release. Yuvan Shankar Raja has been roped in to compose music.
Sandakozhi 2 will be wrapped up by December. After that, Vishal might start work on Thupparivaalan 2, a sequel to his latest film Thupparivaalan, a Sherlock Holmes-style detective drama. In the film, he plays a hot-headed detective called Kaniyan Poongundran and Prasanna played his partner called Mano, modelled after Dr. Watson.
