Anushka Shetty is primarily known for her Telugu films. She has, however, worked with GVM before, playing Thenmozhi in his film Yennai Arindhaal starring Ajith, Trisha and Arun Vijay.
VTV 2 will also feature Madhavan, someone GVM has worked with in Minnale, the filmmaker’s debut film. The sequel will follow events eight years after Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya in its protagonist Karthik’s life. “This’ll be a story of four friends who meet and decided to go to the US for their fifth friend’s wedding. It’s not a Hangover type movie but it’ll be light-hearted. Maddy has agreed to come on board and he’ll be reprising Karthik’s role which was originally played by Simbu. We are in the process of finalising someone from Telugu soon,” GVM said in a statement months ago.
AR Rahman is roped in to do the music for the project. Reports also suggest that Vijay Deverakonda, who was supposed to star in the Telugu version of Gautham’s Enai Nokki Paayum Thota, might also be part of the project. The film will be a multi-lingual taken in 4 regional languages.
