Now that Ilayathalapathy Vijay's Theri is declared a blockbuster, director Atlee might start working on its sequel. Theri 2, if materializes, will have Vijay's daughter Divya playing his on-screen daughter.
Though Divya was seen in Theri, she will play a
full-fledged role in the sequel. In the first part, Divya just
makes a brief appearance on screen.
Atlee had reportedly penned the script of Theri 2 much
before the release of its prequel.
"The second part will revolve around actor Vijay and his
relationship with his daughter, who will, to keep the continuity
alive, be more grown up. Vijay's real-life daughter, Divya, will
play his reel-life daughter in the sequel, too," a source close to
the star actor had told a leading daily.
Atlee too, had revealed that Theri 2 is likely to
happen as he had the script ready. But the young film-maker was
apprehensive about it as he was not sure how Theri will be
received by the audiences. He had also said that he will decide on
Theri 2 based on the success of Theri.
Since Theri is a superhit now, collecting well over 150
Crore rupees worldwide, Atlee might work with the Kaththi
star yet again. In fact, chances are Theri 2 might go on
floors right after the completion of Vijay's next.
Talking about Vijay's next, the second schedule of Vijay
60, the star actor's upcoming film to be directed by
Bharathan, begins today (May 3rd).
According to a report, Vijay's introduction song will be shot in
this schedule. Dance choreographer Dinesh has been assigned the
task of making the song enjoyable with cool dance moves.
While Keerthy Suresh is already on board, speculations are rife
that the film might have another actress, playing an important
Actress Aparna Vinod is said to have been roped into the
project. Official confirmation regarding the same is awaited from
the team of Vijay 60.
Stay tuned for further updates.
