Jigarthanda DoubleX, the second installment of Karthik Subbaraj’s hit action comedy Jigarthanda, is gearing up for a release this Diwali season. Raghava Lawrence, who was last seen in Chandramukhi 2, and SJ Suryah play pivotal roles in the film produced by Kaarthekeyen Santhanam and Kathiresan under Stone Bench Films.

Given the credibility of the director and actors, the Telugu distribution rights were sold for a good sum. Suresh Productions and the Asian Cinemas group, which have jointly released many dubbed films this year, have acquired the distribution rights of the film’s Telugu version in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. The leading production houses enjoy a long-lasting legacy in the distribution arena, and Jigarthanda Double X is expected to have a grand release in Telugu.

“#JigarthandaDoubleX will have a grand release in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana by @sureshprodns and @AsianCinemas_. A @karthiksubbaraj film, in theatres this Diwali!” the makers confirmed the news this noon. Telugu actor Naveen Chandra, last seen in director Srikanth Nagothi’s drama Month of Madhu, is cast as a cop in the film. Santhosh Narayanan scores the music.

Sherif M, Baba Baskar have choreographed the songs in the film, while Dhilip Subbbarayan is the stunt director. T Santanam is the production designer, and Shafique Mohamed Ali is the editor. Revered cinematographer S Thirunavukkarasu cranks the camera. Ashok Narayanan M is the executive producer. Kal Raman, S Somasegar, Kalyan Subramaniam and Alankar Pandian are the co-producers. Kunal Rajan is the sound designer.


Besides Jigarthanda DoubleX, Karthik Subbaraj has also written the story for Ram Charan’s upcoming political drama, Game Changer. He produced films like Ammu, Penguin (that was released on Amazon Prime Video), Boomika (direct release on Netflix, Star Vijay), the web series Triples (Disney+ Hotstar), and Kallachrippu (on ZEE5). His last release as a director was Vikram-Dhruv Vikram’s Mahaan.
