National award-winning actor Bobby Simha would be rubbing shoulders with another national award-winning actor Vikram in the upcoming film Saamy 2.
Sequel to the successful Saamy which released 14 years back in May 2003, Saamy 2 will again be directed by Hari who had directed the prequel as well. Vikram and Trisha have been repeated as the lead pair in the sequel which also has Keerthy Suresh to fill up the glamour quotient.
Speaking about his film, Hari said “Vikram has a unique identity of his own as he dazzles equally in action-packed films as well as in performance-oriented films. We wanted an equally good performer as the antagonist in the sequel as the antagonist (Kota Srinivasa Rao) got ‘killed’ in the prequel. We wanted a villain whose acting instincts matched Vikram.
“We have chosen Bobby Simha, whose character in Saamy 2 will be many times powerful than Rao’s ‘Perumal Pitchai’ character in the prequel. It would certainly mean a new ‘avatar’ for Simha who doesn’t have many films despite his immense talents,” Hari concludes.
