Nine years after they made the successful Nadodigal, actor-director-producer Sasikumar and his close friend national award-winning actor Samuthirakani are coming together for making a sequel to the film.
Starring Sasikumar, Vijay Vasanth, Bharani, Ananya, Abinaya, Ganja Karuppu and Samuthirakani himself in prominent roles, the film was a runaway hit thanks to its fast-paced script, thrust on comedy and values of friendship and established Sasikumar as an actor to reckon with in Kollywood.
Sasikumar and Samuthirakani later worked together in Poraali (2011) too. The friends have treaded different paths and have proved to be successful. While Sasikumar has cut down his directorial instincts and is concentrating only in acting/producing films, Samuthirakani has been dabbling in all three departments and even won the national award for ‘best supporting actor’ for his role in Vetrimaaran’s Visaranai.
Sasikumar plays the hero in Nadodigal 2 which is directed and produced by Samuthirakani. Whether or not Samuthirakani would play a prominent role in the film hasn’t yet been revealed. Title, heroine and other cast members and technicians haven’t been finalized yet but the film’s shoot is to commence in the first week of next month (February).
