Suriya’s 2D Entertainment is getting active and aggressive in bankrolling films. Its new project, ‘Uriyadi 2’, has hit the floors. Like the first part, the sequel too will be directed by Vijay Kumar, who will play the lead role as well.
Sources say Suriya and his friend Rajasekar Pandian (who heads 2D) were impressed by ‘Uriyadi’ and hence, they wanted to produce its sequel with the same team.
“Uriyadi 2 will be as racy as Uriyadi. Besides, it will also carry home an important message. Plans are on to complete the movie at the earliest and to release it by early next year,” sources say.
