female lead of ‘Chandramukhi 2’?

Lyca Productions made the official announcement regarding the most-awaited sequel ‘Chandramukhi 2’ last month.

Raghava Lawrence has announced ‘Chandramukhi 2’, and the film was officially launched a few weeks back. Trisha was said to be playing the female lead.

However, the recent report suggests that Lakshmi Menon will play the female lead in ‘Chandramukhi 2’.

The makers of ‘Chandramukhi 2’ couldn’t rope in Trisha as the female lead due to some reasons, and they have found another tall actress to play the leading lady.

Lakshmi Menon will also be the better option since the actress hasn’t done a horror film yet.

It will be the second installment of Superstar Rajinikanth’s ‘Chandramukhi’. Director P Vasu is set to helm the sequel as well starring Raghava Lawrence and Vadivelu.

Subaskaran of Lyca Productions is funding the project, which has music by M.M. Keeravani aka Maragathamani with R.D. Rajasekhar handles the camera and Thotta Tharani takes care of the production design.

However, the recent report suggests that Lakshmi Menon will play the female lead in ‘Chandramukhi 2’. The official announcement regarding the actress’s participation will be made soon.

The first schedule of the film’s shooting will be commencing next week on July 15 in Mysore, and the schedule will last for 30 days.

The next details about the film’s shoot haven’t been planned yet, and it will be sketched once the first schedule nears completion.

Raghava Lawrence has joined hands with director Vasu for ‘Chandramukhi 2’, a sequel to Rajinikanth’s mega-hit film that was released in 2006.

Vadivelu, who played a comic role in ‘Chandramukhi’ is also part of the sequel, while the film’s music will be scored by MM Keeravani.

The film’s theatrical run lasted 890 days at Shanthi Theatre, beating the 62-year record set by the 1944 film Haridas, which ran for 784 days at the Broadway theatre, also in Chennai.
