Recently, the makers of Sandakozhi had announced that a sequel will be made to the 2005 hit which starred Vishal and Meera Jasmine in the lead roles. The film was directed by N. Linguswamy and produced by Vishal’s brother Vikram Krishna. The film was a great success for Vishal and put him in the top league in the Tamil industry. For the sequel, the original crew has been retained along with the director.
The makers have roped in Keerthy Suresh as the female lead opposite Vishal in this sequel. Besides this, there was not much news about Sandakozhi. Now we hear that R. Sarathkumar’s daughter, Varalakshmi Sarathkumar has been roped in for a key role in Sandakozhi 2. The makers, however, did not reveal what character she would be playing in the film.
Buzz in the industry is that Varalakshmi might be playing a negative character in the film and will be different from what she has done so far in her career. Besides Vishal, Rajkiran, Keerthy Suresh and Varalakshmi, the rest of the cast of Sandakozhi is yet to be announced by the production house which is Vishal Film Factory.
Vishal is currently caught up with his projects Irumbu Thirai and Thuparivalan. He also has the directorial venture of Prabhu Deva which is titled Karuppu Raja Vella Raja which also features Karthi in another lead role.
Besides acting, Vishal is also working towards eradicating issues in the Tamil Film Industry as the President of the Tamil Film Producers Council. Soon, there would be many changes in the way the industry would work.
