Vishal’s long-in-the-waiting Sandakozhi 2 finally kicked off yesterday with an auspicious pooja in the city. The movie is directed by Lingusamy and produced by Vishal’s home banner Vishal Film Factory.
The team has constructed a Madurai set worth Rs. 6 crores resembling a temple festival in Binny Mills. Important scenes of the first schedule of the movie will be canned here before the makers head to Karaikudi and Theni for the next leg of shooting.
Keerthy Suresh plays the lead heroine and Varalaxmi Sarathkumar plays a pivotal role. Rajkiran has been retained from the first part, alongside comedian Soori who is new to the franchise. Yuvan Shankar Raja will compose music for the film.
