Kangana Ranaut to star in Chandramukhi 2
The film stars Raghava Lawrence as the male lead and will be directed by P Vasu
Kangana Ranaut is said to play the titular role in the upcoming sequel Chandramukhi 2, which will be directed by P Vasu.
The film’s prequel released in 2005 and starred Rajinikanth, Jyothika, Vadivelu, Nayanthara, among others. It was the Tamil remake of hit Malayalam film Manichitrathazhu and was remade in several Indian languages.
According to IANS, Kangana will be essaying the role of a dancer in a king’s court. The sequel will have Raghava Lawrence play the male lead, with costumes designed by Neeta Lulla.
"To create a character who is the epitome of grace in every adaa, her looks, her hair, her stance and walk exude and portray the spirit of dance. To me, that is Chandramukhi. The film is going to be a beautiful yet challenging experience. I'm very excited to be working again with Kangana in this project, her sheer strength as an actor lies in the ability to lose herself to the character she is playing. Can't wait to see what amalgamates in Chandramukhi 2,” the costume designer was quoted as saying.
As per the report, Kangana will begin shooting for the film in the first week of December. While she is also working in her second directorial Emergency, the second schedule of Chandramukhi 2 will start in January.
