Earlier this week, it was revealed that Vijay Antony will be announcing the sequel to one of his blockbuster films on July 24 on account of his birthday. As said, the project has now been announced and as widely expected, this is the sequel to Vijay Antony’s blockbuster hit, Pichaikkaran. While the first part was directed by Sasi, this sequel is going to be directed by Priya Krishnaswamy who made her debut with the National Award winning film, Baaram. Apart from acting and music composing, Vijay Antony has also written the story, screenplay and dialogues for Pichaikkaran 2 and this movie marks his debut as a writer.

Reportedly, Vijay Antony wrote down the script of Pichaikkaran 2 in the last few months during the lockdown. The shooting is expected to begin when the pandemic ends. The first look poster has been unveiled and it looks quite interesting. We see Vijay Antony facing thousands of people who are gathered to see him and it looks like the film is going to be made on a large canvas. Produced by Vijay Antony Pictures, Pichaikkaran 2 has cinematography by Theni Eswar and art direction by K Arusamy.
