During a recent chat with a leading daily, director Roopesh Peethambaram confirmed that a sequel to this popular film ‘Theevram’ –which featured Dulquer Salmaan in the lead–is indeed on the cards. He went on to add that the sequel will feature a fresh cast while retaining the core theme of the original.
“It’s not a sequel of Theevram exactly but will be a movie adhering to the theme of the franchise — which is about people taking the law into their hands to get justice for their victims. That’s why we didn’t want to repeat the same cast,” he added.
Interestingly, will not be going on the floors until 2019 as Roopesh will soon be beginning work on the film with actor Prithviraj. Talking about his film with Prithvi, he said that that it will be a mass affair and will start rolling only once the Mollywood heartthrob wraps up his pending films.
“It’s a crime thriller and the audience can expect a mass film. I am currently re-working the script. The movie will take time to go on floors though as Prithviraj is expected to be busy with Aadujeevitham and Lucifer for major part of next year, and will join the film only after he’s done with his commitments,” he said.
Well, we wish Roopesh the very best and hope that his film with Prithvi turns out to be a hit. So, are you looking forward to the ‘Theevram’ sequel and Roopesh’s film with Prithviraj? Comments, please!
