Director Siva and Ajith may go on to team up again. According to the buzz, the director is working on a script which is most likely to be a sequel to Veeram. Siva first directed Ajith in Veeram, which was a massive hit and then wielded the megaphone for two other Ajith starrers Vedhalam and Vivegam.
Reports indicate that the duo is comfortable working together and considering the grand box office success of Veeram, they intend to go ahead with a sequel for it. It is learnt through sources that Sathya Jyothi Films, which had bankrolled Vivegam, will be producing Veeram 2 as well.
Veeram was a village-based subject and its sequel will also be on the same lines. The film had Tammannah pairing up with Ajith. Those in the supporting cast included Vidharth, Bala, Vidyullekha Raman, Santhanam and Nassar. Devi Sri Prasad has composed tunes for Veeram with Vetri cranking the camera and Kasi Viswanathan editing it.
Ever since Vivegam hit the marquee, there have been reports that Siva and Ajith would collaborate for the fourth time. However, there is no official word on it from either side till now. Ajith, according to sources, will be taking a break till January and decide on his next in 2018. There is a strong possibility of an official word about Veeram 2 coming up next year.
Interestingly, if this happens, it would be the first time Ajith is collaborating with a director for the fourth time. And more importantly, the film’s title will begin with V, which would be apt for sentimental reasons.
