The actor-director duo is teaming up for the sequel of Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu their 2006-released popular movie. The Kamal-Gautham project, which has been titled as Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu 2, is expected to go on floors by mid-2020.

The Kamal Haasan project will also mark the reunion of Gautham Menon and Harris Jayaraj, one of the most-celebrated filmmaker-music director combos of the Tamil film industry. The songs of Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu, which were composed by Harris are still loved by the Tamil cinema music fans.
Jyothika, the actress who played the female lead in the first installment, is expected to reprise her role in the sequel. Anushka Shetty, the Baahubali actress is reportedly roped in to play a pivotal role. Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu 2 is produced by Isari K Ganesh under his home banner Vels International.
