Puli director Chimbudevan made his promising directorial debut with the period comedy Imsai Arasan 23-aam Pulikesi starring Vadivelu in a dual role. The film was bankrolled by Shankar’s S Pictures in 2007 and earned the status of a blockbuster at the box office.
Now, the grapevine in K’town is abuzz with reports that Shankar is in talks with Lyca to co-produce a sequel to the hit film. Chimbudevan is expected to call the shots and sources say he has already initiated discussions with Vadivelu, whose waning popularity in on the rise, for a possible collaboration. We have to wait and see if the project materializes.
