Actor-filmmaker Samuthirakani, who shot to fame with his 2009 hit friendship-based action drama Naadodigal, has announced a second part in the franchise and the project will reunite him with actor Sasikumar, who played a pivotal role in the first part. Apparently, the film won’t be a sequel but will carry forward the flavor of Naadodigal. Currently busy with the script work, Samuthirakani, who is looking forward to helming the project, has said that love and friendship will be the recurring theme of Naadodigal 2.
While Sasikumar is confirmed to play the titular role, Anjali and Atulya will play the leading ladies. Talking to Times of India, Kani has said that either Sasikumar or Anjali could bag National award. “This might sound clichéd, but both Anjali and Sasikumar have such strong roles that either of the two could be contenders for the National Award.” Bharani and Namo Narayana, who were part of the first, have been brought on board as well. “The story’s focus is not on who is paired opposite whom, but on each of these characters, and how they become linked. I usually take inspiration for my characters from the society, and these characters, too, will be closer to real life. They will be representative of contemporary youngsters.”
Slated to go on the floors from March, the film will have music by Justin Prabhakaran. Samuthirakani will take break from his acting assignments to complete this project. On the acting front, he will be seen playing a pivotal role in Rajinikanth’s Kaala.
