"What is more special is that Sandakozhi 2 has become my landmark 25th film. As Shanmugarajan said, we always wanted to act in a series of films like God Father, I guess Sandakozhi has the scope of churning out a series of films", added Vishal.
The actor said that Keerthy Suresh will soon win National Award for Mahanati. "I'm sure Keerthy will soon direct a film. Even before my directorial debut, Keerthy will make her debut as a filmmaker", said Vishal who also heaped praise on Varalakshmi.
"First, I wanted to keep Varalakshmi's role as a top secret but with Lingusamy's permission, I'm revealing that audiences will forget all our roles but Varu's character will stay in their minds forever", revealed the actor who also added that Sandakozhi 2 will be his biggest release that the film will hit the screens in Tamil and Telugu around 2000 screens.
"I was tensed when Lingusamy approached me for Sandakozhi 2 because, in the first part, the way Meera Jasmine madam performed her role was incredible. But after the narration, I felt confident because the character is on par with Meera Jasmine's role. After Mahanati, I really enjoyed working in Sandakozhi 2", said Keerthy.
The film's director Lingusamy said: "Both Vishal and I waited for nearly thirteen years because we needed a strong script. In thirteen years, Vishal has improved a lot as a performer. Vishal doesn't prepare much for the shoot because he is a natural performer. As I had also worked with top performers like Mammootty, Suriya, Vikram, and Ajith, I can say that Vishal has given a commendable performance in Sandakozhi 2. I believe that the sequel will get the same respect and reception as the first part".
"I never felt working with a young actress in Sandakozhi 2. After watching Keerthy's performance in Mahanati, I felt like working with Savithri in Sandakozhi 2. I almost became a PRO to Keerthy, she is a very sharp actress and everyone who has seen the film raved about her performance. Some of the biggest challenges in writing the script of Sandakozhi 2 is to find a right actress in place of Meera Jasmine, intermission block and the climax", added Lingusamy.
Sandakozhi 2 is all set to release on October 18.
