In a recent interview, Vishal said that a hero should not accept films if the director does not come up with a convincing script. “Though Lingusamy is a good friend, we argued a lot and the script we locked for Sandakozhi 2 is his fifth draft”, said Vishal.
Sandakozhi 2 begins with Vishal returning from his seven years stay in a foreign country. Meera Jasmine and Rajkiran from the first part have been retained in the sequel while Keerthy Suresh and Varalakshmi are the new additions to the cast.
“Varalakshmi plays a negative role in Sandakozhi 2. I’m sure the film will be a huge celebration and it will take me to the next level”, said Vishal. Yuvan Shankar Raja is composing the music for Sandakozhi 2 and a large Madurai set has been erected for the film in Chennai.
