Irumbu Thirai directed by PS Mithran starring Vishal and Samantha was a well-made film that was released last year. Dealing with the theme of cyber crimes, Mithran had delivered an intelligent and an engrossing thriller which earned him his next with Sivakarthikeyan, produced by KJR studios. We had also recently reported that Vishal and Shraddha will be doing a film titled as Irumbu Thirai 2 for convenient purposes and that it is directed by debutant Anand.
We have more updates to enlighten our readers on this with further developments. Our sources in the know how state, “Vishal will be essaying the role of an army officer and Shraddha also will be a cop in this film of Anand”. Vishal had donned on the police avatar in quite a few films as his physique and body language are apt for such characters. Shraddha Srinath doing a cop role is something new for the actress and it will be the first police character in her filmography. Apparently, the film will have many action sequences for the Vikram Vedha heroine.
The shooting of this film is expected to start within the next few days. Vishal had recently come back from his Sundar C film for which he was shooting in Turkey where he even had an injury. As we had stated earlier, Irumbu Thirai 2 is just the temporary name (working title) and the similarity of the film with the current one is hero Vishal and his army officer character. All the rest is new in this film whose title will be announced shortly. The unit shot a sequence in a police station in Chennai recently.
