Samrajyam 2, the much-awaited Unni Mukundan starrer movie, directed by popular Tamil filmmaker Perarasu, will hit the theatres on June 5th. The movie is the remake of 1990 released Mammootty starrer movie Samrajyam, directed by Jomon.
The release of the movie has been put on a halt, prior to the complaint lodged by Mohammed Shafeeq. According to Shafeeq, the script and dialogues of the movie are written by him, but the credits have been given to director Perarasu.
Since the complaint which was filed against producer Ajmal Hassan has been proven to be wrong, the much-awaited project will hit the theatres without any more hurdles.
Samrajyam 2 is the most ambitious project in the career of Unni Mukundan, who is yet to release his first solo hit. The movie was initially offered to some other popular actors including Prithviraj, Dulquer Salmaan and Arya, who turned down the offer.
As per the reports, Perarasu and producer Ajmal Hassan were keen on casting Dulquer Salmaan in the movie. But the actor rejected the offer since he does not believe in the concept of sequels and remakes.
The movie will have Akansha Puri in the female lead. Vijayaraghavan will reprise his role Khadir from the prequel. Devan, Parthiban, Madhu, Manoj K Jayan, Riyaz Khan, Suman etc will appear in the supporting roles.
