Singam created a lot of buzz when it was released and rocked the box-office with a smashing run. Now, director Hari is ready with a sequel and the film titled Singam 2 is all set to roll. The film has Suriya, Anushka and Hansika Motwani playing the lead roles.
Sources said that director Hari is busy selecting his cast for the movie. Incidentally, an audition was held recently as he wanted to pick the supporting cast of the film. Aspiring actors turned up in huge numbers for the audition, a few of whom were shortlisted.
The idea behind the attempt was to provide fresh actors who have been longing for an entry into Kollywood, with an opportunity.
The director was surprised to see many actors turn up to earn a role in Singam 2. The film will commence shooting once Suriya is done with K V Anand's Maatran.
Meanwhile, revealing the movie’s storyline, sources said, “The film will be shot mostly in Tirunelveli and Tuticorin areas. Suriya will hunt down criminals who are involved in smuggling arms and other things through the coastal line.”
Besides Suriya, Anushka and Hansika, Santhanam and Vivek among others play key roles. Singam 2 will have music by Devi Sri Prasad.
Hari and Suriya have teamed up earlier to deliver hits like Aaru (2005), Vel (2007) and Singam (2010). Suriya and Vivek will play the cops, while Hansika will play a school girl in the film.
