Actor-politician Sarathkumar, who keeps himself very active despite his 62 years of age, has launched the shoot of his second film in five days. Days after launching Rendhvadhu Aattam, Sarathkumar held the ‘muhurat’ of his upcoming film titled as Chennaiyil Oru Naal 2 yesterday in Coimbatore.
Debutant JPR would be directing the film which is not a sequel to the 2013 hit film Chennaiyil Oru Naal which had Sarathkumar, Cheran and Prasanna in lead roles. Popular author Rajesh Kumar, who has written more than 2,500 stories so far, pens the story and dialogues of Chennail Oru Naal 2 which is produced by Ram Mohan on behalf of his banner named ‘Kalpatharu Pictures’.
The script reportedly is full of incidents which occur in 24 hours’ time. “It’s a crime thriller set in the backdrop of Coimbatore and Sarathkumar plays an under-cover agent,” informs JPR. Deepak is the cinematographer while Ron Ethan Yohaan (of Maya fame) scores the music. Muneeshkanth, Anjana Prem, Rajasimhan and child artiste Sathanya would be playing prominent roles in the film.
The crew plans to shoot non-stop for a month before moving out to shoot the second schedule outside Coimbatore.
