It has been quite some time since the fans saw Lakshmi Menon in a Tamil film and her last release was Rekka which released in September 2016. She has already completed Yung Mung Sung with Prabhu Deva, but the film has not seen the light of day due to various financial issues. The fans are eagerly waiting for the talented actress’ comeback film. There were reports that she would be acting in director Muthaiya’s next venture, but there were no official confirmations. However, it has now been revealed that Lakshmi Menon would play the female lead in an upcoming sequel film. Yes! She has been signed to act in the sequel of Dindigul Sarathy that will feature Karunaas in the lead role.

Karunaas took to his official Instagram page to share a picture with Lakshmi Menon and he captioned that picture, ‘Dindugul Sarathi 2’, implying that the project is on. However, in a few minutes, he deleted that post and re uploaded the picture without any caption. So, it looks like the makers want to be tight lipped about the project for now. Due to his political commitments, Karunaas has not been actively involved in films and we have been seeing him on and off in a few films. Up next, he would be seen in an important role in Suriya’s Soorarai Pottru which is set to be released on October 30 on Prime Video platform.

With Dindigul Sarathy 2, Karunaas will be returning as a lead hero and we will have to wait for a few more days to get more details. Dindigul Sarathy was a comedy drama which was released in 2008. The film was a remake of the 1989 Malayalam film, Vadakkunokkiyantram. The film was released through the banner of Sun Pictures and hence the film was widely popular among the mainstream audience. Directed by Siva Sanmukam, Dindigul Sarathy had music by Dhina and cinematography by S Thaj. Karthika, Saranya Ponvannan, Nassar, MS Bhaskar, Livingston, Anu Mohan, Shanmugarajan formed the supporting cast.

Dindigul Sarathy was a commercial masala comedy film which got a fair reception from the mainstream audience. We will have to wait for a few more months to know how the sequel shapes up. Actors and filmmakers have been marching towards sequels for the past few years and Karunaas is the latest addition. Stay tuned to this space for more updates.
