Director Mysskin replaced STR in Anjathe 2?

Director Mysskin’s film, Anjathe 2, will reportedly star actor Arun Vijay in the lead role. According to various reports doing the rounds, the first choice for the role was Silambasaran or STR but the idea was recently dropped. The change came in because STR allegedly asked for Rs 10 crores to play the lead role.

Director Mysskin was previously in the headlines when he had an argument with actor-producer Vishal about the budget of their film, Thupparivalan 2. In an unexpected turn of events, actor Vishal decided to direct the film on his own, owing to the rejection of demands that were made by Mysskin. The actor posted the letter which was sent to him by Mysskin on his official Twitter handle.

In the letter posted, Mysskin has put forth around fifteen demands which also includes a salary of ₹5 crores among other points. The Psycho director also spoke about the intellectual rights to the film which he believed belonged to him. In the post made by Vishal, he mentioned that nobody should fall prey to such people, especially the producers. Have a look at the post here.
