Mumbai, After 'Thalaivii', actress Kangana Ranaut will be seen in another Tamil movie. This time, the actress will be essaying the titular role of Chandramukhi in 'Chandramukhi 2', directed by P. Vasu. The film's prequel, which released in 2005, starred superstar Rajanikanth and Jyothika Saravanan.

National award winning costume designer Neeta Lulla will be working on the film, she has amped up the curiosity for the film with a sketch of the character.
When contacted Neeta Lulla mentioned: "To create a character who is the epitome of grace in every adaa, her looks, her hair, her stance and walk exude and portray the spirit of dance. To me, that is Chandramukhi. The film is going to be a beautiful yet challenging experience. I'm very excited to be working again with Kangana in this project, her sheer strength as an actor lies in the ability to lose herself to the character she is playing. Can't wait to see what amalgamates in 'Chandramukhi 2'".
