Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut is all set to play the titular role in Chandramukhi 2, the sequel to Rajinikanth’s hit 2005 film that has Raghava Lawrence playing the lead role.

P Vasu, the director of the first film, will return to helm the sequel which also brings back actor-comedian Vadivelu in a key role.

Kangana confirmed the news on Instagram stories. “Excited to be doing another Tamil film with legendary P Vasu ji,” she wrote.

Kangana will play the titular role of Chandramukhi, a dancer in a king’s court in the film. Notably, actor Jyotika played the role in the original.

Other details regarding the plot of the sequel are unknown. It is also unclear if Chandramukhi 2 will take its storyline from the recent smash-hit Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 starring Kartik Aaryan, Tabu and Kiara Advani.

The original Bhool Bhulaiyaa was a remake of Malayalam film Manichitrathazhu as well, just like Chandramukhi.

Bankrolled by Subaskaran of Lyca Productions, Chandramuki 2 will have music by MM Keeravani, cinematography by RD Rajasekar, and art direction by Thotta Tharani.
