Maanaadu 2 is on cards, hints Venkat Prabhu.
As ‘Maanaadu’ crossed the break-even mark within a week of its release, the makers organized a thanksgiving session in Twitter Spaces last day. It was attended by the main cast and crew members including Simbu, director Venkat Prabhu, SJ Suryah, Kalyani Priyadarshan, composer Yuvan Shankar Raja and Premgi Amaren.
During the session, when asked about the possibility of a sequel, director Venkat Prabhu revealed that it is definitely on cards and that the film’s antagonist, Dhanushkodi, played by SJ Suryah, is still alive and will return in the sequel.
‘Maanaadu’ ends with SJ Suryah’s character getting shot and killed by security forces. But the film’s time-loop concept ensures that if the protagonist Abdul Khaliq, played by Simbu, is alive then the villain, Dhanushkodi will also be alive.
‘Maanaadu’ is a political thriller with a fascinating time loop concept. It is a first such attempt in Tamil cinema and the film has been getting overwhelming response from both critics and the common audience.
