At an awards night held in Chennai on Sunday night, popular commercial filmmaker Lingusamy marked his presence as one of the chief guests. There was a huge gathering of Suriya fans at the event and they cheered him on enthusiastically. It must be noted that Lingusamy had directed Suriya in the much-hyped Anjaan back in 2014. At the event, when the hosts asked the director about which film he would like to make a sequel, fans started screaming ‘Anjaan 2’.
Lingusamy spoke at length about the risk of doing sequels and also about Suriya and Anjaan. “A sequel is a risky proposition. Even when it comes to making a standalone film, the first half is easier compared to the second half, as the audience build up certain expectations about the second half during the interval. They get into a film comparatively fresher and we can engage them in the first half. Coming to Anjaan, it was a film which I did with a lot of sincerity and dedication. I feel I’m not responsible for that film misfiring. Suriya sir is a hero whom I really adore and respect. I would love to make a fresh film with him if given the chance again. He is someone who submits himself to a film completely, " said Lingusamy.
When Lingusamy was saying all this about Suriya, Jyotika couldn’t stop clapping and cheering. Her face was glowing with pride when she heard such positive words about her husband.
