Southern actor Vaibhav Reddy has been roped in to play the lead in the upcoming Tamil film Pizza 2: Villa, a sequel to Tamil horror-thriller Pizza.
Pizza starred Vijay Sethupathi and was one of the biggest low-budget hits of 2012. Directed by Karthik Subbaraj, the film's story revolved around the escapades of a pizza delivery boy.
"Vaibhav and Sanjitha Shetty will play the lead in Pizza 2: Villa, which will be directed by debutant director Deepan Chakravarthy," producer CV Kumaran said in a statement. "The rest of the cast will be finalised soon. The film will go on the floors in April," he added.
Made on a shoestring budget of Rs 1.5 crore, Pizza reportedly garnered over Rs 5 crore at the Box-Office. Filmmaker Bejoy Nambiar has already bought the Hindi remake rights of the film.
