Chennai, Sep 12 (IANS) Filmmaker Prabhu Solomon has begun shooting for the sequel to his highly successful Tamil romantic-drama “Kumki” in Thailand, a source said.
“Kumki”, released in 2012, explored the relationship between a mahout and his elephant.
“Prabhu is currently filming some flashback portion in Thailand, in elephant farms, with a child artiste. The team has been silently shooting for over a week and is set to return to Chennai on Saturday,” the source from the film’s unit told IANS.
Madhi and Aditi play the lead.
The sequel is expected to be bigger, both in terms of scale and budget.
The rest of the cast and crew have been kept under wraps.
Since the release of “Kumki”, Prabhu has not tasted success as his films “Kayal” and “Thodari” turned out to be box-office duds.
He has pinned high hopes on “Kumki 2”.
