Jersey heroine, Shraddha Srinath who had a great start to her Kollywood career with the blockbuster Vikram Vedha, is all set to replace Samantha in Abhimanyudu (Irumbu Thirai) sequel. According to the latest buzz in the film industry, Shraddha Srinath is going to replace Samantha Akkineni in the upcoming sequel of Irumbu Thirai/ Abhimanyudu.
Vishal starrer Irumbu Thirai with director PS Mithran was one of the best Tamil films in 2018. Now, the actor is planning to come up with a sequel to it. But this time Samantha Akkineni will not play the female lead in Irumbu Thirai 2. The makers are planning to bring Shraddha Srinath on the board to play the female lead.
The sources close to the team unit reveal that the film will be directed by Anand, a former associate to director Ezhil. It is said that the sequel will have the flavor of Irumbu Thirai and hence, Vishal suggested Irumbu Thirai 2 as the title of this upcoming drama. Meanwhile, Vishal is currently in the limelight due to his latest release Ayogya which hit screens on Saturday (May 11, 2019) and opened to a decent response at the box office despite facing several issues prior to its release. The film, a remake of Temper, features the actor in the role of a corrupt cop.
On the other hand, Sam was last seen in Majili that was declared a hit by critics and fans. And Shraddha will be seen in a pivotal role in the official remake of Pink, Nerkonda Paarvai.
