Popular comedy-horror 'Chandramukhi' became one of Superstar Rajinikanth's most successful movies of all time. The film directed by P.Vasu was released in 2005 with multi-star casts including Jyothika, Prabhu, Vadivelu, Vinith and many others playing prominent roles. Now decades later, the official announcement regarding the most-awaited sequel 'Chandramukhi 2' was made last month by Lyca Production.

The sequel will be directed by P. Vasu and the film announcement was made by dance choreographer turned actor Raghava Lawrence who'll be playing the lead role in the film. While Raashi Khanna, Andrea and Trisha became the first choice to play the female lead, now reports suggest that 'Kumki' actress Lakshmi Menon has been roped in to star against the actor, and the official announcement is expected to be made very soon.

The first schedule of the film's shooting will be commencing on July 15 in Mysore and the film's music will be scored by MM Keeravani. Comedian Vadivelu who played a significant role in 'Chandramukhi' will be playing a similar role in the upcoming sequel.
