In his recent interview with the Vikatan, actor Jayam Ravi said that the antagonist in Thani Oruvan 2 will be powerful than the first part. "My brother Mohan Raja has finished the script work but due to my prior commitments, the project is getting delayed. The antagonist in the sequel of Thani Oruvan will be powerful than the original", said Ravi.
There were rumors that Mohan Raja has approached Mammootty to play the antagonist in the sequel but things are yet to be confirmed.
Ravi also added that he is using the lockdown period to pen his script. "My directorial debut will not happen anytime soon but it will happen for sure. Maybe when I turn 40 or 50 but will definitely direct a film", said the actor.
Jayam Ravi has Mani Ratnam's Ponniyin Selvan and Ahmed's Jana Gana Mana in the pipeline.
