Chennai, July 22 (IANS) Cinematographer-filmmaker SD Vijay Milton, who has commenced work on the sequel to his highly successful 2014 Tamil actioner “Goli Soda”, says the franchise is very close to his heart.
“As a filmmaker, aGoli Soda’ brought me lot of success and critical acclaim. It earned me respect among audiences and peers. It’s a franchise that’s very close to my heart,” Milton, who is busy shooting the second part in the franchise, told IANS.
Interestingly, “Goli Soda 2” will be shot against a sports backdrop, but won’t be a sports film.
“I can’t talk much about the film. It will be primarily based on basketball but it will also deal with other sports. When I struck upon the idea to continue aGoli Soda’ franchise, I felt setting it against sports backdrop will work wonders,” he said.
Milton says he likes to explore different themes.
“Just like my last film ‘Kadugu’, this film too will be different. I hate monotony in my own life. In that case, how can I enjoy doing the same kind of films?”
Milton is bankrolling the film under his home banner, Rough Note Productions. It stars National award-winning Samuthirakani in a pivotal role.
