About Chandramukhi 2
The film is slated to be released on Ganesh Chaturthi this year in Tamil, Hindi, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada languages. Helmed by P Vasu, Chandramukhi 2 is the sequel to the blockbuster Tamil horror comedy Chandramukhi, which starred Rajinikanth and Jyothika in the lead roles.
The chemistry between Rajinikanth and Jyothika, as well as Rajinikanth's portrayal of the character in the film gave it a cult following. Chandramukhi itself is reportedly a remake of the Kannada hit Apthamitra, which was originally inspired by the Malayalam classic Manichithrathazhu.
In Chandramukhi 2, Kangana will portray the role of a dancer in the king's court, who was known for her beauty and dance skills. Raghava Lawrence will play the lead role opposite Kangana in the film. Oscar-winning music composer MM Keeravani has composed music for the upcoming film.
