Tamil cinema is not new to the concept of sequels anymore. In fact, in the last few years, numerous sequels have hit the big screen consistently, encouraging film-makers to dish out many such movies.
While some sequels narrate the remainder of the story that needs to be told, some begin with a fresh story while keeping the characters intact.
Here are 5 such sequels we can't wait to watch:
Starring superstar Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson in the lead, 2.o is the sequel to Enthiran, which released in 2010.
Directed by Shankar, 2.o is being made with a budget of 350 Crore rupees. Being captured in the 3D format, 2.o is expected to be a high quality sci-fi movie, on the lines of Hollywood flicks.
