Mafia: Chapter 1, known simply as Mafia, was an intense action-crime film written and directed by Karthick Naren. The film starred Arun Vijay and Priya Bhavani Shankar in leading roles with Prasanna playing the film's antagonist. It was released back on 21 February 2020 and opened to mixed reviews from both the audiences and critics alike but was overall a sleeper hit.

The film was initially planned to be a two-part film and following the reception of the first film, the sequel of the action thriller film Mafia is in the talk and will reportedly start rolling soon. Recently, actor Arun Vijay shared a photo from a certain Mafia photoshoot on his Instagram and attached a caption to it which read, “One of my favorite photoshoot with @venketramg for #Mafia !!💪🏽 #Aryan vs #Dexter 💥 @karthicknaren_m ???? #Mafia2”. The actor also tagged director Karthick Naren on the post asking him for an update on the sequel of the film.

Responding to the post, director Karthick Naren replied, "Viraivil bro", which translates to 'Soon bro'. Earlier, actor Arun Vijay on his official Twitter handle stated that the second part of the film is in the discussion. There has been no other confirmation regarding the film's plot, cast and crew members of the movie, etc. but some of the old cast is expected to come back. With so little detail revealed, it is highly expected that more information regarding the film Mafia 2 will be out soon.

Director Karthick Narren is currently working on his film Nirangal Moondru at the moment which wrapped up its shooting last month. The film is currently in its post-production phase and is speculated that the director will begin work on Mafia 2 sometime later this year after the release of Nirangal Moondru this year.
