Perarasu to Direct the Sequel to Samrajyam

Twenty one years after Mammootty’s Samrajyam hit the theatres to make history in the Malayalam film industry, its sequel is set to get rolling. This sequel, to be named Son of Alexander will be directed by Perarasu. Perarasu’s shot to glory through the Tamil films like Thiruppachi, Sivakasi, Thiruppathy and Pazhani.

The original film which was directed by Joemon told the audiences a captivating story about the dark alleyways of the underworld which was not always confined to the less illustrious parts of the society. The lead role was played by the legendary Mammootty. The character was named Alexander and it is quite obvious from the name of the sequel that it revolves around the son of this Alexander. The locus of the two films is sure to remind one of the Sarkar films or the mythical Godfather trio.

Though it has been decided that one of Trisha and Asin will play the lead woman, no actor has yet been finalised to play the male protagonist and central character of the film. Ajmal Hassan and Baiju Adityan are producing this film and have declared that this will be one of the most expensive films ever in Malayali cinema. This film, expected to be released around Christmas will have Prakash Raj, Arjun, Manoj K. Jayan, Biju Menon and Sooraj Venjaramood in it, playing the negative roles. Shafeek will write the screenplay while the music will be scored by R.A. Shefeer.
