Not very long ago it was announced that Madhavan would be playing the lead role in the sequel of Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya which had Simbu in the original. However, latest reports reveal that Madhavan couldn’t come onboard for the film due to unknown reasons. And now apparently, Gautham Menon has approached Simbu himself to play the role in Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya sequel. Reports reveal that Simbu has agreed to play the part but the project will have to wait till next year since the actor has 4 movies this year lined up including the multi-starrer with Mani Ratnam. The sequel will have Karthik, the protagonist, reuniting with his buddies and traveling to the US for a wedding and would be a light-hearted plot.
Another interesting aspect about the sequel of Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa is that Karthik – the central character – will have three friends from Trivandrum, Bangalore and Hyderabad who will be a part of his story in the film. And the filmmaker has revealed that Puneeth Rajkumar and Tovino Thomas will be playing the characters from Bangalore and Kerala respectively.
However, what remains unknown that the character from Hyderabad is yet to be confirmed by Gautham. A while ago, there were reports doing rounds that Gautham Menon may team up with actor Nani again and these news reports are now being linked to the sequel of Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa. Speculations are that the character from Hyderabad will be played by Nani.
A while ago, there were many reports doing rounds that Gautham Menon is in discussions with various actors from different languages for a multi-starrer which included stars like Puneeth Rajkumar, Anushka Shetty, Tamannaah Bhatia and Nani. And with the news getting confirmed that there will be a sequel to Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa, all these dots are now getting connected. Gautham Menon is yet to confirm the title of the sequel, however, it is most likely to be titled Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa 2.
