The Tamil film industry is buzzing with excitement as veteran actor Sarathkumar has announced that he will be starring in Surya Vamsam 2, a sequel to his blockbuster hit Surya Vamsam that released in 1997. The original film, directed by Vikraman, was a family drama that explored the emotional conflict between a father and a son, played by Sarathkumar in a dual role.
The film was a massive success and was remade in three other languages, including Hindi as Sooryavansham featuring Amitabh Bachchan. However, none of the remakes could match the charm and appeal of the Tamil version, which has achieved a cult status among the fans over the years.
Sarathkumar took to Twitter on Monday to share the news of Surya Vamsam 2 as he celebrated the 26th anniversary of the film’s release. He thanked his fans for their love and support for the film and its characters, dialogues and songs. He also hinted that the sequel will be coming soon, without revealing any further details about the cast, crew or plot of the film.
“It has been 26 years since the release of Suryavamsam , a special family film that can be celebrated in the artistic journey, the times have passed, the technology has progressed, and the fans from all walks of life can still be celebrated. Thanks to the fans who enjoyed the entire movie like characters, dialogues, songs, made it a huge success and supported it! Soon Surya Vamsam - 2!”, he wrote in Tamil.
The announcement of Surya Vamsam 2 has created a lot of curiosity and anticipation among the fans who are eager to know more about the sequel and how it will continue the story of Surya Vamsam. The original film had Raadhika Sarathkumar, Devayani, Priya Raman and Manivannan in pivotal roles.
It is not clear whether they will reprise their roles in the sequel or new actors will be roped in. It is also not known whether Vikraman will return as the director or someone else will helm the project. Sarathkumar is currently basking in the success of his latest film Por Thozhil, a thriller that has received rave reviews from critics and audiences alike.
The actor has proved his versatility and acting prowess by portraying complex and layered characters in recent films. However, his fans are also looking forward to seeing him in his trademark mass avatar in Surya Vamsam 2, which promises to be a treat for all generations.
