Selvaraghavan officially announces AO2 with Dhanush

Even as fans were enjoying the re-release of director Selvaraghavan’s Aayirathil Oruvan, the film maker officially announced the making of Aayirathil Oruvan 2.

Aayirathil Oruvan which released in 2010 had Karthi and Parthiban playing the lead roles. Music for the movie was by G V Prakash.

Dhanush will play the lead role in AO2. Dhanush tweeted about the project ‘A magnum opus !! The pre production alone will take us a year. But a dream film from the master @selvaraghavan ! The wait will be long. But we will give our best to make it all worth it. AO2 ..The Prince returns in 2024’.

Over the last few months, director Selvaraghavan often being giving hints about working with his brother and actor Dhanush soon though he had confirmed much earlier that he will be working with Dhanush.

Aayirathil Oruvan is a 2010 Indian Tamil-language action-adventure film written and directed by Selvaraghavan and produced by R Ravindran.

The film stars Karthi, Andrea Jeremiah and Reemma Sen in the lead with Parthiepan playing a pivotal role. It revolves around three characters, Muthu (Karthi), Lavanya (Andrea Jeremiah) and Anitha (Reemma Sen) who embark on an adventure to search for a missing archaeologist.

It is inspired loosely by the historical decline of the Tamil Chola dynasty and the rise of the Tamil Pandya dynasty.
