Aadu 2 debuts on Netflix
The film is a sequel to the cult hit starring Jayasurya
The sequel to the cult hit Aadu starring Jayasurya is now available for viewing on Netflix. Directed by Midhun Manuel Thomas and produced by Vijay Babu, Aadu 2 is a rare example of a sequel that got made owing to public demand.

Dude makes a comeback in Aadu 2 as well.
Vijay Babu plays the role of a cop named Sarbath Shameer. A sequel titled Aadu 3 has been announced with an aim to release it in December 2019. It will be in 3D.
The film's director-producer duo is also working on the sequel to the hit Mammootty-film Kottayam Kunjachan, which released 20 years ago.
