There has been a lot of buzz around the sequel to director Selvaraghavan's Aayirathil Oruvan. Aayirathil Oruvan (2010) was an action adventure, written and directed by Selvaraghavan. The film stars Karthi, Reemma Sen, Andrea Jeremiah and Parthiban in crucial roles. It revolves around a search for a missing archeologist and is partly inspired by the empires of the Pandyas and Cholas. Music for the film was by GV Prakash Kumar and the film features a song sung by Dhanush. The film attained cult status over the years.

When OTTplay quizzed the director if the sequel was on the cards, he said, "If I get a chance to do the sequel of Aayirathil Oruvan, I will be excited, too."

The director, in the meantime, is busy working on Naane Varuven which stars Dhanush in the lead. So, how is it directing someone else's script? "We wrote the script for the film together. It's a collaborative effort. While I wrote one version, he wrote the other."

Selvaraghavan is currently basking in the success of his recent release Saani Kaayidham. Calling the film a dream come true opportunity, Selvaraghavan said, "Getting to work in a film like this itself is a dream. I think films like this should be enjoyed by the audience and they deserve to win. 

When quizzed about the long gaps between the directorial releases in the last few years, Selva tells us, " Seel, I was very clear that I wanted to spend a lot of time with my kids, because those are the things that if you miss, they are never going to come back again. I have three kids. Even today, I love to spend time with the children, and they are everything for me. That's the only reason that there is a gap. There is no conscious decision to delay the releases."
