The Tamil film industry is all set to have a bunch of sequels in 2020. The makers have already announced sequels to several popular films from the past decade, including Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu and Thuppakki. Now, the acclaimed movies Soodhu Kavvum, Thegidi, and Maayavan are all set to get sequels very soon.
Recently, producer CV Kumar, who bankrolled Soodhu Kavvum, Thegidi, and Maayavan, had conducted a poll in his production banner's official Twitter page, asking the audiences to choose the most awaited sequel. Soodhu Kavvum, the Vijay Sethupathi starrer topped the polls after around 62 percent fans voted for it.
