Neeya 2 features Jai, Raai Laxmi, Varalaxmi and Catherine Tresa in the lead roles
With his first film this year, Kalakalappu 2 turning out to be a hit, Jai is currently busy with Neeya 2, which is touted to be a remake of the 1979 film Neeya starring Kamal Haasan. As we had previously reported, the film will also star Varalaxmi, Raai Laxmi and Catherine Tresa. It's now known that Varalaxmi will reprise the role of the shapeshifting snake which was played by Sripriya in the original film.
The film will also feature a 22 ft snake in an important role and the makers travelled to different destinations in India and Thailand before finding the right snake in Bangkok. The first schedule of Neeya 2 has been completed in Pondicherry and the subsequent ones are scheduled to be shot in Talakonam, Chennai, Madurai and Chalakudi. Made on a budget of Rs 10 crore, the film is being directed by L Suresh, who has also penned the story, screenplay and dialogues.
Jai will next be seen in Party and Jarugandi.
