Thani Oruvan 2 is the sequel to Mohan Raja-directed 2015 film, starring Jayam Ravi, Nayanthara and Arvind Swamy
Thani Oruvan 2, the sequel to Jayam Ravi starrer Thani Oruvan, will reportedly start rolling from April 2024. According to sources, the Mohan Raja directorial will tentatively commence shooting from the second week of April next year. Earlier this year, the filmmaker had announced the sequel to the 2015 action thriller movie. On the film’s eighth anniversary, the makers released a promo video of the sequel, announcing that both Jayam and Nayanthara will reprise their roles.
The upcoming film is expected to be an extension of the first part, and the team is currently in discussions regarding the antagonist for the sequel. Hip Hop Thamizha, who had scored music for Thani Oruvan, will be onboard for the new project as well. Jayam, who is currently shooting for Brother and Genie, also has Kadhalikka Neramillai with Nithya Menen in the offing. So, he is likely to begin shooting for Thani Oruvan 2 after wrapping up the other two projects.

Arvind Swamy too will reprise his role in the sequel?
Arvind Swamy - who made a smashing comeback with Thani Oruvan as the cold-blooded, conniving scientist Siddharth Abhimanyu - has wished the team behind the second instalment. Now, fans are hoping that he too reprises his role in the sequel as a twin brother. However, other than an update about the lead actors, there have been no announcements about the rest of the cast and crew.
