While it’s raining sequels in Tamil cinema lately, the one that a lot of people are eagerly awaiting is the sequel to CS Amudhan’s Thamizh Padam, starring Shiva. The latest update is that Amudhan has written the lyrics for the opening song of the film.
Amudhan says, “This track will not be similar to Pacha Manja (the introduction song of Thamizh Padam). But it will also be a spoof song. The concept behind it is different though.” This isn’t the first time Amudhan is writing lyrics for a song. In the past he’s written Maddy Maddy in Minnale, Oh Mahazeeya in Thamizh Padam, and YOLO in Anegan.
“We’ve registered the film as TP 2.0, but might change it in the next few days,” says the director, who confirms that Shiva and the rest of the cast from the original will return for the sequel. “It’ll be a sequel, but there aren’t any story elements that are being taken from the first film,” he adds. While the heroine is yet to be finalised, the shooting is scheduled to commence from November 27.
