Director Hari, who is gearing up to start working on the sequel to his 2003 Tamil blockbuster Saamy, says the project will only go on the floors after Vikram completes his much delayed project Garuda.
"I'm really happy to be reuniting with Vikram for 'Saamy 2'. However, the project will only roll from next year after Vikram completes shooting for 'Garuda'," Hari told IANS.
Being directed by Thiru of Samar and Naan Sigappu Manithan fame, Garuda will feature Vikram in an interesting role.
In Saamy 2, the Anniyan actor will return as the foul-mouthed police officer, and Hari says that the project will be bigger in terms of scale vis-à-vis the prequel.
"We will definitely make it bigger. We're reuniting after a decade and the expectations will be much higher," he said. The project will be bankrolled by Thameens Films, and Harris Jayaraj has been roped in to compose the tunes.
Vikram, meanwhile, awaits the release of his Tamil thriller Iru Mugan.
