Ramesh Aravind and Nassar in Shivaji Surathkal 2

The cast of director Akash Srivatsa’s Shivaji Surathkal: The Mysterious Case of Mayavi, the sequel in the detective franchise starring Ramesh Aravind in the title role, is getting bigger and more exciting by the day. The film, which has Radhika Chetan, Raaghu Ramanakoppa and Vidya Murthy from the original, had already added Meghana Gaonkar, Rakesh Maiya and Vinayak Joshi to the cast, all three of who are playing police officers.

The latest onboard is veteran actor Nassar, who plays Ramesh’s father, as Vijendra Surathkal, a retired police officer. The actor recently shot a 10-day schedule for the film, one of the major story arcs of which explores the relationship between Vijendra and Shivaji, beside the case that the latter has to solve, of course. The duo shares a dysfunctional relationship, the intricacies of which will be explored in this instalment of the film. Interestingly, although Ramesh and Nassar have known each other for a very long time, this is their first-ever onscreen collaboration in front of the camera. Ramesh has earlier directed Nassar in Uthama Villain. In Shivaji Surathkal 2, Nassar will have two distinct looks, one as a younger version while still in the police force and the other, an older one.

Produced by Rekha KN and Anup Gowda, Shivaji Surathkal is a franchise written and directed by Akash. The film has cinematography by Advaitha Gurumurthy and music by Nakul Abhayankar. Currently in production, Akash is looking at finishing principal photography by the end of January. This edition of the film is supposed to be Case No.103, given that it is Ramesh’s 103rdfilm. The film was officially launched on September 10, 2021, on lead actor Ramesh’s birthday, although Akash was still fine-tuning the script at that point.
