Minnal Murali, the first superhero movie to be ever made in Malayalam, has been striking all over the Internet since its release on Netflix. With the blockbuster hit of the Tovino Thomas starrer, audiences are expecting a sequel soon, and are waiting with open ears to get any hint about the same.

Amidst all the expectations, producer Sophia Paul has now hinted about the sequel, which adds confirmations to the rumoured news earlier. In an interview with The Federal, she said the team will soon be announcing the second part. Though it is too soon to talk about what lies ahead, she has spilled more beans and revealed that the project is going to be a bigger extravaganza. “I can’t talk about what we have in mind, but it is going to be a hell of a ride,” she said.

The Basil Joseph directorial has amused everyone with its extraordinary storytelling and amazing performances. The movie revolves around Jaison (Tovino), a tailor who gets superpowers after getting struck by lightning. Besides Tovino’s marvellous superhero, actor Guru Somasundaram has also been praised all over for his massive supervillain character. The actor has showcased an amusing performance, which gained him a separate fan base within days of the release of the drama.

When asked about the cast and crew, Sophia expressed hesitation to talk about Somasundaram’s character. However, she affirmed that her entire team including Basil and Tovino will be executing their plans together, having been given a red carpet reception now. She also thinks of this as the license given by the audience to take the franchise to a next level.

Minnal Murali premiered on December 24 on Netflix, and is available to stream online in Malayalam, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and English as well.
