Yesterday, the entire cast and crew of Chennai 600028 II Innings organized a big press meet to announce the release date. Turns out that people will have to wait for quite some time to catch the flick.
Director Venkat Prabhu announced that the cricket-themed comic caper will release on November 10. Strangely, this happens to be a Thursday, as is becoming the new trend in Kollywood to release movies on a Thursday instead of a Friday. This movie is the sequel to the 2007 film Chennai 600028, one of the most popular movies amongst the youngsters. So, the expectations are already skyrocketing for the sequel.
Director Venkat Prabhu says he has a special tribute planned for former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa (who passed away on Dec. 05) before the start of his film, Chennai 600028: II Innings. She is from the film industry and we wanted something nice and memorable. We just wanted to do something out of gratitude, love and respect we have for her. This (Chennai 28 Part Two) will, after all be the first new film that audiences will see after her death.
