The most anticipated sequel to the 2003 release, Saamy, started rolling from today in Chennai. Featuring Vikram in the same role of a cop and Trishna and Keerthy Suresh as the leading ladies, Saamy 2 will be directed by Hari who has directed the original too. The sequel is being made after 14 years of the release of the original Saamy which was a super hit film in the career of Vikram and is one of the milestones in the actor’s career. The official launch of the film happened today in Chennai with the cast and crew of the film which includes Vikram, Keerthy Suresh and director Hari.
“Trisha is not playing an extended cameo, contrary to rumours. Both the heroines have very important parts to play and their characters are crucial from the story’s perspective. We will definitely make it bigger. We’re reuniting after a decade and the expectations will be much higher,” a source from the unit had recently said.
Saamy 2 will have music composed by Devi Sri Prasad while the original had music by Harris Jayaraj. Saamy 2 wil be produced by Thameens Films. Interestingly, Bobby Simha will be playing the antagonist in Saamy 2, which is one of the biggest moves in his career.
