The colossal negative reviews AAA1D received in theaters led to a rumor that director Adhik Ravichandran and STR has no plans to make the sequel for the movie. The director denies them all and says plans are on.

“I was never aware of the claims that Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan 2 is never happening. People based on reviews and industry talks assumed it wouldn’t but we are in the pre-production stage for the movie. It is too soon to talk about it but we are planning Pongal 2018 release. The sequel will have another Simbu in a new getup and more characters to make it interesting,” said Adhik.
