Sequel Of Arulnithi’s Hit Horror Thriller Goes On Floors!

For more than a decade, the horror genre was leaning in Kollywood. Of a mammoth pile of dramas made in the genre, very few turned out to be successful. DeMonte Colony was one of them. Directed by storyteller R. Ajay Gnanamuthu the entertainer hit the theaters in the year 2015 with actor Arulnithi in the lead. The flick enjoyed a great reception among the audience, and eventually went on to be a great box office success. The movie which was made with a budget of 2 crore bagged a collection of 25 crore. Nearly after seven years, earlier this year, actor Arulnithi had announced that there will be a sequel for the drama. And that director R. Ajay Gnanamuthu who penned and directed the first installment will be continuing his job in the second. Actress Priya Bhavani Shankar has been booked to play the female lead role. 

The project recently went on floors with a small pooja ceremony. The production house has shared the news on social media. Actor Arulnithi himself has shared the news. Taking to his official twitter handle, the actor shared a poster from the flick, and wrote, “DeMonte Colony 2 shoot begins! Vengeance of the unholy. Ajay Gnanamuthu. Sam C S. Priya Bhavani Shankar.” Here is the post made by the actor.

It looks like there would be no correlation between the first and second installment. As in the first part the lead character essayed by Arulnithi will be dead in the end. Or will there be a twist in the tale? DeMonte Colony was shot extensively on the colony with the same name which is situated in Alwarpet. Post the release of the drama many youngsters from all around the city began to flock to the place, and the police had to ban the entry of trespassers into the colony. 

The first installment of the flick had actors Ramesh Thilak, Sananth, Abishek Joseph, M. S. Bhaskar, and George essaying various other supporting roles. While it is known that actors Arulnithi and Priya Bhavani Shankar will be seen in the lead roles, details on the rest of the cast are not yet known.
