Well-renowned director Gautham Vasudev Menon will soon be back with the sequel to his classical superhit movie 'Kaakha Kaakha' starred by Suriya. Kaakha Kaakha is one of the movies that gave a crucial breakthrough for Suriya and it was released in 2003. Suriya featured as Anbuselvan IPS and the story revolved around a cop gangster drama. 

While Suriya played the lead role, Jyothika played the female lead and Kaakha Kaakha was produced by Kalaipuli S Thanu. Recently, the producer spilled the beans in an interview that the plans for the movie's sequel 'Kaakha Kaakha 2' are in place.

Thanu further said that Kaakha Kaakha 2 will be one of the successful movies of Gautham Vasudev Menon. "Gautham ought to respond to this. It is feasible. I already paid an advance to Gautham. It will be yet another valuable film for him when he returns", he added. 

Kaakha Kaakha still remains a superhit movie that ascended the growth of both Suriya and Gautham Menon in their careers and the music for the movie was composed by Harris Jayaraj. RD Rajasekhar handled the film's cinematography and Kaakha Kaakha opened to overwhelmingly positive reviews. It became Suriya's first biggest success at the box office.
