As we all know, Raghava Lawrence is going to act in Chandramukhi 2 and the news got the fans super excited. It also created a huge buzz on social media. The announcement about the project was made a few months back, during the initial days of the lockdown. Recently, there were wide speculations that this film will have actress Kiara Advani playing the female lead. Considering the fact that Lawrence and Kiara Advani have worked together in the former’s Hindi directorial - Laxmmi Bomb (starring Akshay Kumar), these rumours started spreading on social media. Before Kiara Advani, there were also rumours that Jyotika or Simran might do the female lead.

However, Lawrence has now made an important clarification and termed all the rumours to be baseless and fake. He said that the makers are currently working on the script and added that the production house will officially announce the female lead after finalizing. Lawrence wrote on his official page, “Hi to my media friends, Many rumours about Chandramukhi 2 Female lead is being spread that Jyothika madam, Simran madam or Kiara Advani might be seen in the lead role but it’s all just fake news. The script work is going on, once the covid situation settles and The production confirms the female lead, We will officially announce it🙏”. Well, we hope this clarification from Lawrence puts the rumours to rest.

Chandramukhi 2 will be directed by ace filmmaker P Vasu who directed Chandramukhi. Kalanithi Maran will be bankrolling this horror thriller under the banner of Sun Pictures and the film is being planned to be shot on a huge scale. Lawrence has already donated the advance money (Rs 3 crores) he would get for Chandramukhi 2 to Corona Relief Funds. Chandramukhi is one of the most celebrated films in Tamil cinema’s history and it is indeed going to be a challenging task for Vasu and Raghava Lawrence to recreate that magic.

Reports state that Chandramukhi 2 will deal with the story of Vettaiyan Raja and his relationship with Chandramukhi which was only briefly told in the Rajinikanth starrer. Details regarding the rest of the crew is also not known and we can expect the announcements to be made post the pandemic.
