The year 2018 is said to be the year of sequels in the Tamil film industry with Vishal’s Sandakozhi 2 one among the many slated to hit screens. Being directed by Lingusamy under the Vishal Film Factory banner with music by Yuvan Shankar Raja, the film had been announced for an April release.

Actor Keerthy Suresh is said to be playing the female lead in the sequel to the 2005 blockbuster, Sandakozhi.

Varalaxmi Sarathkumar too has been cast in a vital role in the film.

Veteran actor Rajkiran also reprises his role from the original film.

In the midst of this, reports now state Sandakozhi 2 will feature Varalaxmi as an antagonist. If she is indeed playing one of the bad guys, it will mark the second time that a Vishal film will feature a villainess after Thimiru in 2006 had Sriya Reddy.

Actor Arjai, who delivered a notable performance in last year’s Pandigai and had a short role in Theri is also said to be playing a baddie.

In addition, actor Hareesh Peradi, whose fame shot up after playing crucial roles in Vikram Vedha, Mersal and the recent Sketch has apparently been cast as one of the villains.

We will now have to wait for a teaser or a trailer to be released to arrive at a conclusion on their roles in the film.
