Neeya 2 to release 10 May

Neeya 2, a sequel to yesteryear Kamal Haasan's 1979 hit titled the same, would be out 10 May. Written and directed by L Suresh, the movie has Jai, Catherine Tresa, Varalaxmi and Rai Laxmi in key roles. Varalaxmi will reprise the role of a snake which was played by Sripriya in the original film.

The film will also feature a black cobra in an important role, and the makers travelled to different destinations in India and Thailand before finding the right snake in Bangkok. However since it could not be used, they shot using computer graphics. Neeya 2 was shot in Pondicherry, Talakonam, Chennai, Madurai, and Chalakudi.
