In a surprise addition to 'Saamy 2', makers of the film have announced Aishwarya Rajessh as the latest addition to their team. Latest set of posters from the movie show the actress and Vikram as husband and wife. A tweet from the film's Twitter handle said, “Happy to announce that the most performing, promising, and the busiest actress @aishu_dil joining #SaamySquare and shoot on progress #ChiyaanVikram #DirectorHari @ThisIsDSP @ShibuThameens #BobbySimha @SonyMusicSouth”.
It seems that Aishwarya will replace Trisha, who played Vikram's wife in the first instalment of the movie. Trish had exited the project citing creative differences. She had also wished the team the best in a social media post. “I haven't had proper commercial release yet in my career. Being a part of Hari sir's film got me really excited. This will be a proper commercial action film,” Aishwarya said. She has already begun shooting for her parts in the film. The film will also see Keerthy Suresh in a leading role and Bobby Simhaa as the villain. Directed by Hari and produced by Shibu Thameens, the movie is expected to release later this year.
