Later, Vishal took up the directorial of the film. Mysskin has now said that he was willing to direct the film again if Vishal wished and complete the film. Following this offer, there were reports that Mysskin would return to helm Thupparivaalan 2. When we contacted sources close to Vishal told DT Next, “At no cost, Vishal would allow Mysskin to take over the film again.
No talks have happened on that front and Vishal will continue to direct Thupparivaalan 2 as planned. Currently, Vishal and other members of VFF are busy with the post production work of Chakra.” Another source added that Mysskin has indirectly approached Vishal several times in the past. “Their mutual friends have spoken to Vishal to sort out the differences but in vain.” Post lockdown, Mysskin has two films with Arun Vijay and Simbu while Vishal has a film with Anand Shankar and Karthik Thangavelu in various stages of production.
