Director Hari, whose full name is Hari Gopalakrishnan, has said that his forthcoming film Singam 2 starring Surya Sivakumar is not a sequel to his earlier blockbuster film Singam. Surprised? Well, according to the filmmaker it is an extension of the first instalment and not a sequel!
The second part is a continuation of the first with additional
characters. In a statement, director Hari said, "I have retained
all the characters from the first part and I have also added a few
more actors in Singam 2, which makes it a continuation of
the first part. Probably for the first time in Tamil cinema such a
feat is attempted,"
The director claims that he had written the Singam 2
story even before its first instalment. The success of
Singam made him to develop the complete script of
Singam 2. "I had developed the story for the second part
even before Singam was released. Following the success of
Singam, I decided to work on Singam 2 and I have
received lot of encouragement from my team," he said.
