We had earlier reported that Kamal Haasan has approached Makkal Selvan Vijay Sethupathi to play an important role in his upcoming film Thalaivan Irukkindraan. Reliable sources say that the film is a sequel to Thevar Magan and we hear that actors like Revathi and Vadivelu who played pivotal characters in the original have been retained in Thalaivan Irukkindraan.
We now hear that Sethupathi will be seen playing Nassar's son in the film. In the original, Nassar gets killed in the climax so the sequel will see both Kamal Haasan and Vijay Sethupathi locking the horns with each other.
While Ilaiyaraaja composed music for Thevar Magan, Rahman is scoring the music for Thalaivan Irukkindraan.
Earlier, Lyca was supposed to bankroll the film but now, industry insiders murmur that Raaj Kamal Films International will be producing Thalaivan Irukkindraan.
