In an interview with Silverscreen, Amala Paul elaborated on her role Agalvilakku.


“It’s one of the most honest characters I’ve done. Usually, the hero and heroine are all positive. But, in real life, we display various shades, from white to grey to dark, depending on the situation. I love that I’m no Sathi Leelavathi in the movie; I’m real.”

Director Susi Ganeshan, tells Silverscreen about the film:

“I like to break predictability; Thiruttu Payale 2 has mostly been shot in green and yellow. And, while the original was a dark commercial film, this one’s all bright and stylish, because it is ultimately about a white collar crime.”

Apart from its lead cast, the film also stars Sanam Shetty, Vivekh and Robo Shankar in supporting roles. Vidyasagar is the composer for this one, and the film is being bankrolled by AGS Entertainment.

“I am playing an underdog Monga who falls in love with a girl. Unemployed youths have a tendency to fall in love anyway, but his marriage seems difficult because he doesn’t do anything.
