Music composer-turned-actor Vijay Antony's 2016 Tamil film Pichaikkaran directed by Sasi was a huge blockbuster in Tamil and Telugu. Pichaikkaran sequel was already announced in 2020. Now the latest update is that Vijay Antony is all set to don the director’s hat for Pichaikkaran 2. The news was announced on Saturday by director AR Murugadoss on Twitter.
Thanking Murugadoss, Vijay Antony posted: "Thank you sir Hope I do justice to the important role of the ‘Director' #Pichaikkaran2 #Bichagadu2".
Speaking of his foray into direction, Vijay said, “I was very sure that I didn’t want to direct, but somehow I wrote a story. Eventually, I started to process that story in my mind. It’s like giving birth to a child — you don’t know who that child is until it grows up with you, and when you begin to understand that child, the bond grows as well. That’s how it happened and I decided to direct this film.”
