Pichaikkaran is an emotional entertainer written and directed by Sasi, produced by Fatima Vijay Antony and starring Vijay Antony and Satna Titus, with Bagavathi Perumal, Muthuraman, and Dheepa Ramanujam in supporting roles. Pichaikaaran happens to be Vijay Antony’s biggest hit to date and it also helped him to establish a market in the Telugu speaking states. The film reaped huge profits for both producers and distributors. The film was dubbed into Hindi as Roadside Rowdy and was remade in Odia as Baby, in Marathi as Bhikari and in Kannada as Amma I Love You. 
During a recent interview to TOI, Vijay Antony revealed that he has been working on the script of Pichaikkaran during the lockdown - “I have been writing Pichaikkaran 2 for the last four months. Sasi sir, who directed the first one, won’t be helming this because he’s committed to other projects. The sequel will have better production quality. The technical crew will be a surprise for many; I might compose music for the film as well.” Now that Vijay Antony has become a writer during the lockdown, we will have to see if Vijay Antony direct this film or not?
