Sequel to Amrutha Varshini in the making

Director Dinesh Baboo is set to helm film produced by Jayashree Devi, and Ramesh Aravind is likely to play the lead once again

Published: 06th August 2018

Dinesh Baboo's 1997 directorial Amrutha Varshini was a box-office hit upon its release. And now, over two decades later, serious work is in progress for a sequel. While the first part starred Ramesh Aravind, Suhasini, Sharath Babu and Niveditha Jain, the second part, which is in the last leg of scripting, is also likely to have Ramesh back on board.

The film will be produced by Jayashree Devi, who has previously bankrolled Mukunda Murari. Our sources tell us that the producer-director will soon begin pre-production work. “As in the first part, Ramesh Aravind is likely to play the lead again. However, the team still has to approach the actor. A few youngsters, who are yet-to-be finalised, are also expected to be part of the romantic drama,” sources say.

Ramesh played the role of Abhishek, who is obsessed with Veena (played by Suhasini), and even goes out his way to kill her husband Hemanth (played by Sharath Babu). Amrutha Varshini won accolades and was even dubbed in Telugu and Tamil, and remade in Malayalam. The songs in the film, composed by Deva, were all chartbusters.
