Uriyadi, one of the most underrated movies of 2016, touched upon the issue of caste politics under debutante Vijay Kumar's direction, who also went on to deliver a hard-hitting performance as the male lead.
That said, an exciting news is now out that a sequel to the film under the title Uriyadi 2 is happening with filming taking place near Courtallam where shoot for Dhanush’s second directorial movie produced under Thenandal Films is also happening.
Meanwhile, our sources have informed us that Uriyadi 2 is being produced by actor Suriya under his 2D Entertainment banner and it also reportedly marks his first production film that will not include him or any of his family members.
Uriyadi 2 will feature a new heroine as the female lead with Vijay Kumar reportedly retaining his technical team from the first film, which will not be a proper sequel, but will feature a story that will be on the same lines of the original with an official announcenment expected to be made soon.
