Chandramukhi 2 started rolling
Chandramukhi was the blockbuster Tamil film starred by Super Star Rajnikanth, Jyothika, Nayan Thara etc and it was directed by popular South Indian director P Vasu in 2005. It was the official Tamil remake of Malayalam blockbuster named Manichithra Thazhu directed by Fazil and starred by Mohanlal.
Now, P Vasu is coming with another remake which is said to be the sequel of Chandramukhi. But there will not be Rajnikanth in it. This film will have Raghava Lawrence and Irudhi Sutru fame actress Ritika Singh in lead roles. The film had already started rolling from July 14.
The film which titled as Chandramukhi 2 as of now is a remake of the Kannada movie named Shivalinga which was directed by P Vasu himself. In Kannada version, the lead role was played by Shivaraj Kumar. Shivalinga is based on a detective who tries to crack a murder case whose only witness is a dove and the film tells how the murder case was resolved by the detective.
P Vasu said that he wanted a fresh face to do the female lead in this movie and that is why he chose Ritika Singh. She is relatively fresh here in Kollywood as she had done only one movie, which had won her the national award as well. P Vasu told her to make her dancing skills better to match up to Raghava Lawrence who is a terrific dancer.
