Vishal’s ‘Irumbu Thirai’ Sequel To Begin Shoot Next Month.

Vishal Starring Irumbu Thirai Movie Stills

Shoot for Vishal’s Irumbu Thirai sequel will begin only next month, official sources say. The film has not been titled yet. This comes after multiple reports said that the actor had already begun shooting for the sequel.


Talking to Silverscreen, an official spokesperson for Vishal said “Vishal is currently in Turkey shooting for the Sundar C film. He will be back only by the end of the month.”  He also denied rumours that the film will be titled Irumbu Thirai 2. “As of now, the movie does not have a title.” The sequel, produced by Vishal, is likely to go on floors by the next month, confirmed the source. It will be directed by newcomer Anand.

“Further details will be revealed only after Vishal returns to the country,” the source added.  The original movie, directed by debutant filmmaker PS Mithran, dealt with cybersecurity. Apart from Vishal, the movie featured Samantha as a therapist, and Arjun as the antagonist. Irumbu Thirai went on to become a hit at the box office.

Meanwhile, production on Sundar C’s film with Vishal began in March. The yet-to-be-titled movie features Aishwarya Lekshmi and Tamanna who will reportedly be playing a negative role. The film made headlines when Vishal suffered an injury while shooting a chase sequence in Turkey. However, he resumed shooting after a few days.


The actor is currently awaiting the release of Ayogya on April 19. The film is directed by debutant Venkat Mohan, a former assistant of AR Murugadoss. Jointly produced by Vishal Film Factory and Tagore Madhu, Ayogya is a remake of the Telugu film Temper which was recently remade into Hindi as Simmba with Ranveer Singh. Raashi Khanna is the female lead in Ayogya. R Parthiepan, KS Ravikumar, Sachu, Vamsi and Pooja play other roles. Sam CS is the music composer, R Karthik is the DOP, and Ruben is the editor.
