Sigappu Rojakkal is a 1978 Tamil classic film directed by P. Bharathiraja starring Kamal Haasan and Sridevi in the lead roles. The film was not only considered to be a trend setter in an era of over-dramatised acting in Tamil films but also, it went on to become a blockbuster completing a 175 day run at the box office.
For the past few days, media and social networking websites were
filled with news about a possible sequel to this cult film and that
Bharathiraja will be associated in Sigappu Rojakkal 2 as
well. The latest news about the project is that G.V. Prakash has
been approached to score music for the film. While his inclusion in
the project is still not clear, another news doing the rounds is
that Bharathiraja's son Manoj Bharathiraja might debut in this film
as a director.
Manoj Bharathiraja, who's career as an actor never took off might actually don the director's hat for the first time to prove his mettle in the industry among others. For now, it is being said that the father-son duo are busy working on assembling the cast and crew for the film and the decision of who will be taking up the responsibility of directing the movie will be decided later.
