Sameera Reddy will be playing Chandramukhi in ‘Vettaiyan’, the sequel to Rajnikanth blockbuster ‘Chandramukhi’, say rumourmills in Kollywood.
It is reported that director P Vasu has been talking to Sameera Reddy about the film. In the original, Jyothika played the title role.
’Aptha Rakshaka’, a sequel to the ‘Aptha Mithra’ (a remake of ‘Chandramukhi’ in Kannada) has been breaking all collection records in Sandalwood. The film, starring late Vishnuvaradhan in the lead, was shown to Rajnikanth recently. It is heard that the superstar was very impressed by the film. Vasu had made the sketches of Rajni as Vettaiyan and Sameera as Chandramukhi also.
Post the ‘Kuselan’ fiasco (Vasu was the director of this film), Rajni has shown disinterest in ‘Chandramukhi 2’, it was rumoured then. Vasu went forward with his project in Kannada and struck gold there. Now, it seems, it is only a matter of time before ‘Vettaiyan’ goes on floors. Incidentally, ‘Chandramukhi’ was the remake of Malayalam superhit ‘Manichitrathazhu’, written by Madhu Muttom.
