P Vasu is coming up with a sequel to the superhit Tamil movie Chandramukhi, a remake of the hit Malayalam movie Manichitrathazhu. Earlier the news was doing the rounds that P Vasu was desperately trying to rope in Rajinikanth in the sequel as well. Rajinikanth had essayed the role of the doctor in the prequel. However, as per latest sources, Mammootty has been offered that role by P Vasu.
P Vasu who has been making the sequel with Vishnuvardhan in Kannada had earlier approached Rajinikanth for the same role in the Tamil version. Rajinikanth who was overwhelmed by the script decided to convey his information within two weeks time. However when Vasu called him after two weeks, Rajinikanth politely refused on the pretext that he has no dates for the next two years. Sources attribute it to the debacle of Kuselan at the box office.
P Vasu who realized that Rajinikanth had politely avoided him decided to go ahead with the project in Tamil and so approached Mammootty, who has considerable star value in Tamil as well. However Mammootty has not responded to that till now and it needs to be seen whether the superstar would concede to P Vasu's request.
