Director Venkat Prabhu has roped in five filmmakers to shoot the climax sequence of Chennai 600028 II Innings. The film is a sequel to the coming-of-age sports drama Chennai 600028 (2007), and will be a continuation of the earlier film’s storyline.
The five filmmakers include VR Nagendran (Kaaval, 2015), and four of Prabhu’s assistant directors – Venkatesh Ramakrishnan (Nalanum Nandhiniyum), Saravana Rajan (Vadacurry), Sripathy (Kanimozhi), and Chandru (Naveena Saraswathy Sabatham).
The film released its motion poster earlier in February this year, with Yuvan Shankar Raja’s music in the background. The ensemble cast includes Jai, Premgi Amaren, Vijayalakshmi, and Nithin Sathya, among others.
Joining the film’s cast are a few known faces like Abhinay Vaddi, Shanthini, Subbu Panchu, Vaibhav Reddy and Mahat Raghavendra. The cast also includes newcomers Anjana, Krithika, and Maheshwari Sana.
Chennai 600028 II is slated to release early next year. Currently, a large set is being designed to shoot the climax sequence.
