Vijay Antony is a well-known actor and music composer who had taken a new avatar recently as the director of his film Pichaikkaran 2. The film has created excitement among fans as it is its sequel to the hit film that was released in 2016. The actor had said Pichaikkaran 2 will have an entirely new story and will not be a continuation of the first part. The film also has Kavya Thapar playing the female lead and has a star cast that includes Mansoor Ali Khan, Y Gee Mahendran and so on. It is set to release in theatres on May 19.
Vijay Antony gave an exclusive interview with national award-winning critic Baradwaj Rangan, The editor in Chief of Galatta Plus and shared some interesting insights about Pichaikkaran 2. The film marks the first Pan-Indian release for the actor as it is to be released in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada and in Hindi in a week or two. When asked how he feels about that, the actor candidly said “it’s nothing for me, sir, It's what we do usually do. All my films will be dubbed in Telugu. After that, we sold the satellite rights to Hotstar Vijay TV, and they have asked me to do the film in all south Indian languages, If I finish dubbing it early, we can release it in all languages, that is what I am trying. I think, in Andhra the film is to release in 700 theatres, the same in Tamil. Kannada and Malayalam are new to me but what they have said is they will watch it in Tamil itself. it's just released as an option in 50 theatres or so. Hindi is the challenging part. Kodiyil Oruvan was dubbed and telecasted on the Hindi in television and has received positive comments, I have heard. So it's become a Pan-India film, sir. Even if you release a film normally, they will dub it in other languages, we are just doing it in advance by one week or 15 days. I believed people will receive the same content well in all languages."
