Actor Vishal, who is currently basking in the success of Ayogya, has already commenced work on his next project, tipped to be a sequel to his blockbuster film Irumbuthirai. The industry grapevine is that Shraddha Srinath has been roped in to play the leading lady.

Last seen in Tamil thriller K 13 in which she played a writer, Shraddha pairs with Vishal for the first time in this action-thriller. Shraddha also has Nerkonda Paarvai, the Tamil remake of Pink starring Ajith, in her kitty. She reprises Taapsee Pannu’s role from the original in the remake. The film is slated for release on August 10.

Vishal is producing the sequel which is expected to go on the floors later this year. The rest of the cast and crew are yet to be finalised. Irumbuthirai, which released last year, was a cyber thriller that featured Vishal and Arjun in the lead roles.

Vishal will also soon work on the sequel to Thupparivaalan with filmmaker Mysskin. Both of them met recently at Cappadocia in Turkey where Vishal was shooting for the Sundar C directorial. Apparently, discussions were held regarding Thupparivaalan 2, slated go on the floors later this year. Vishal had confirmed that he will produce the film which will roll from November after the completion of pending commitments.

In Thupparivaalan, Vishal played a detective called Kaniyan Poogundran, modeled after Sherlock Holmes. Actor Prasanna played his sidekick, a character close to Sherlock’s partner Dr Watson. Vishal confirmed he will be reuniting with Mysskin for the sequel even before the release of Thupparivaalan.
