Former love-birds are coming together in Vishal’s upcoming film Sandakozhi 2 which is to be directed by Lingusamy.
Lingusamy made rookie Vishal an action hero by casting him in an action-packed film Sandakozhi (2005) in what was only the second film in the actor’s career.
The film, which had the national award-winning actress Meera Jasmine opposite Vishal, went on to become a super-duper hit film. 12 years later, Lingusamy is now planning to make a sequel to it.
Rajkiran’s acting and Yuvan Shankar Raja’s music/songs besides Meera and Lal’s screen presence resulted in the film’s huge success. This time around, though, there won’t be Meera Jasmine opposite Vishal. Keerthy Suresh has stepped into Meera’s shoes while Vishal’s former real-life ladylove and actress Varalaxmi Sarathkumar has been cast in an important role.
Varalaxmi, busy with her projects in Tamil and Malayalam, might play the film’s antagonist, it is reported. This would be the first time that Vishal and Varalaxmi would be coming together on-screen after their much-publicized split some time back.
