‘Kanchana’, the second instalment in the ‘Muni’ franchise, revolves around the series protagonist Raghava and a transgender ghost.

In the Hindi version, Akshay Kumar is reprising the role played by Raghava Lawrence. Kiara Advani is the female lead. Though the makers are yet to reveal who will be essaying the transgender part, names like Amitabh Bachchan, Madhavan and Sanjay Dutt are doing the rounds in social medias. Let’s wait for an official word.
