P Vasu has confirmed that he is planning to do a sequel to the blockbuster ‘Chandramukhi‘ with Ajith playing the lead role.
“It was Rajinikanth sir who recommended Ajith for the role. He asked Ajith to play the protagonist in the sequel when the two met during the kumbabhishekam of a temple inside Sivaji Ganesan’s house”, the director says.
He adds: “Rajini immediately asked me to send a print of ‘Aptha Rakshaka’ (the Kananda version starring Vishnuvardhan) to Ajith. After watching the film, the actor was impressed”.
Saying that he is now waiting for a confirmation from Ajith, Vasu, who is currently busy with ‘Puli Vesham’ starring RK and Sadha, adds: “Ajith is at present busy with ‘Mankatha’ and one more project. Once he gives his nod, I will immediately start Chandramukhi-2”.
‘Chandramukhi 2’ is currently being made in Telugu by P.Vasu with hero Venkatesh. It is titled as ‘Nagavalli’.
