Wednesday 18th March 2020 05:57 EDT

If reports are to be believed, Kamal Haasan and Gautham Menon will team up on a sequel to their blockbuster cop film 'Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu', which was released in 2006. While an official confirmation is awaited, reliable sources said that Menon has already begun writing the script. They added an announcement on the collaboration will be made soon.

'Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu' saw Kamal Haasan don the khaki after 'Soorasamharam', 'Vetrivizha' and 'Kuruthipunal'. The movie was a profitable venture at the box office, and traces the journey of Raghavan who sets off to nab the killers of his friend's daughter Rani. The original starred Jyotika, Kamalinee Mukherjee, and Daniel Balaji in key roles.

In a recent interview, Gautham Menon had hinted the same. He added, “I am revisiting some of my earlier films because people are asking me to. I am open to doing sequels, but it should not look like I am capitalising on the success of films. Suriya says I should never do a sequel to 'Kaakha Kaakha'. As for 'Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu', Raghavan is at the stage of life where he has a daughter. Maybe, she is 15, and there could be wife Maya.”
