The film, which will have Thambi Ramaiah and Yogi Babu in pivotal roles, has three heroines and four antagonists
VZ Dhorai and Sundar C
Actor-filmmaker Sundar C is ready with his next directorial project Aranmanai 3, which features a bevy of stars. It was announced recently that the horror-comedy flick will hit the screens on October 14. Movie buffs were in for a surprise when an announcement was made on Thursday on his next movie as an actor.
The film, to be directed by VZ Dhorai, has been titled Thalai Nagaram 2. Sundar and Dhorai had last teamed up for Iruttu. Thalai Nagaram, which released in 2006 under the direction of Suraaj, was recently in the news when Vadivelu's character Naai Sekar in the film was announced as the title for another movie.

However, Dhorai informs that Thalai Nagaram 2 isn't a sequel to the 2006 film. In a chat with OTTplay, he says, "We have retained only the protagonist's character in this film which will will go on floors from next month. The story, which will be set in Chennai, required a ruffian and we felt Sundar sir's character, 'Right', from Thalai Nagaram will be apt for the sequences in it. I can't reveal much details now, but all I can say is that no other character from the one-and-a-half decade-old movie will be retained in my film."
Dhorai adds, "The project will have three heroines and four antagonists. Thambi Ramaiah and Yogi Babu will play pivotal roles in the movie." The director's political thriller Naarkaali, which stars actor-filmmaker Ameer in the lead, was wrapped up a while ago. Ask him about it and he says, "I'm done with my part. It is the producer's call to make announcement on the film's release. He has to decide if he plans to release it in theatres or go the OTT way." Naarkaali had hit headlines earlier this year when the filmmaker alleged that he was upset with the unnecessary interference of many people in his work which lead to delay in its production.
