While interacting with the media through video conferencing to promote her upcoming film Ponmagal Vandhal, Jyotika said that no one has approached her so far for Chandramukhi 2.
To be produced by Sun Pictures, P Vasu who directed Chandramukhi will be helming the sequel. In an earlier interaction, Vasu said that sequel will be based on the characters of Vettaiyan and Chandramukhi from the original. Instead of Superstar Rajinikanth, Raghava Lawrence will be playing the lead role in the sequel.
When asked who is Jyotika's choice to play Chandramukhi in the sequel, the actress' choice was Simran. Interestingly, Simran was initially roped in for Chandramukhi but she suddenly became pregnant and backed out. In fact, the actress even shot a few scenes in the film. Due to this unavoidable circumstance, the actress had to opt-out of the project and then eventually replaced by Jyotika.
