Mysskin and Vishal will reunite for the sequel to their highly successful Tamil crime thriller, Thupparivaalan. Not long ago, Mysskin met Vishal at Cappadocia in Turkey where he was shooting for Sundar C’s upcoming film, Action.

On Tuesday, it was announced that maestro Ilaiyaraaja will compose music for the film. Vishal and Mysskin met Ilaiyaraaja and handed over a cheque to officially welcome him on board the highly anticipated sequel.

In Thupparivaalan, Vishal played a detective called Kaniyan Poogundran, modeled after Sherlock Holmes. Actor Prasanna played his sidekick, a character very close to Sherlock’s partner Dr Watson.

Even before the film’s release, Vishal confirmed he will be reuniting with Mysskin for the sequel. Soon after its release, Thupparivaalan was panned by a section of critics and audience for being heavily inspired by Sherlock Holmes.

It has already been confirmed that Prasanna will return to play his character from the first part. The rest of the casting, however, is yet to be finalised for Thupparivaalan 2.
