Buzz: MM Keeravani to be brought on board for Lawrence, P Vasu's Chandramukhi 2

For a long time, there have been reports of Lawrence and P Vasu joining hands again for Chandramukhi 2. According to a trusted source, MM Keeravani will be roped in to compose music for the ambitious project which will be bankrolled by Lyca Productions.

An announcement on the same is expected to happen later this year. Along with the official update, makers are likely to open up whether it will be a sequel to the 2005 film Chandramukhi (streaming on Disney+ Hotstar) as well. The Rajinikanth-starrer helped him bounce back after the debacle of Baba which was released in 2002.

Though Chandramukhi was the remake of Malayalam classic Manichitrathazhu (streaming on Disney+ Hotstar and YouTube), it was more similar to the latter's Kannada remake Apthamitra. Interestingly, both Kannada and Tamil remakes of the Mollywood version were helmed by Vasu. As Chandramukhi went on to become a big hit in Telugu, makers weren't keen on a Tollywood remake.

After a few years, a sequel to Apthamitra was made in Kannada, titled Aptharakshaka. It was further remade into Telugu as Nagavalli.

With Vasu planning to make Chandramukhi 2 now, movie lovers are curious to know what the veteran filmmaker has in store for them. The project brings together Lawrence and Vasu after Shivalinga, which was also a remake of a Kannada movie helmed by the latter.

After Lawrence himself directing and starring in a few installments of the popular Kanchana franchise, film buffs wonder what more is left to explore in the horror-comedy genre. Keeravani, who had composed music for a few Kollywood projects in the 90s, took a long hiatus from Tamil cinema to return with Rajamouli's Naan Ee. Inji Iduppazhagi was the last Tamil movie for which he composed music.
