There's no denying the fact that Mammootty is one of the biggest names in South cinema today. The living legend is held in high regard thanks to his good looks, remarkable versatility as an actor, charismatic personality and simple nature. Over the years, he has starred in several successful films and this has helped him become a force to be reckoned with. Now, the Megastar is in the limelight for an awesome reason.
Mammootty To Play The Villain In Thani Oruvan 2?
According to reports in the Tamil media, Mammootty might be roped in to play the antagonist in Thani Oruvan 2 which is a sequel to the 2015 hit Thani Oruvan. The reports further state that the team is in talks with the Thalapathi actor and things are heading in the right direction
He Might Be The Perfect Choice
Thani Oruvan was one of the most critically-acclaimed films of 2015 and it redefined the tenets of commercial cinema. In it, Jayam Ravi played the protagonist while Arvind Swami played the villain. The Roja star's effective portrayal of the heartless Siddharth Abimanyu was the biggest highlight of the film. In fact, many in the industry felt that Arvind Swami overshadowed Jayam Ravi. As the antagonist is going to be the focal point of Thani Oruvan 2 as well, many in the industry feel that Mammootty is the best choice for the role.
Mammootty Is No Stranger To Kollywood...
Interestingly, Mammootty is no stranger to Tamil cinema. He has previously delivered commendable performances in films such as Thalapathi and Makkal Aatchi and carved a niche for himself in Kollywood. As such, if he agrees to play the villain in Thani Oruvan 2, it might add a new dimension to the buzz surrounding the film.
About Thani Oruvan 2
On a related note, just like the first film, Thani Oruvan 2 too features Jayam Ravi and 'Thalaivi' Nayanthara in the lead role. It is going to be helmed by Mohan Raja and might feature the Vanamagan girl Sayyeshaa as the second lead. Needless to say, this is going to be a big film and one is likely to get some more clarity on this in the days to come.
