The Aarya-Anushka starrer is planned as a short-term production after which Selvaa is likely to plunge deep into the making of the sequel to his Aayirathil Oruvan. The film, seen by many as the Indian version of Indiana Jones, released early last year.Talking about the film, Selvaa says that he wasn't going to reveal much about the film. "My father Kasturi Raja would be producing the film. I'd consider casting Dhanush in the sequel if he is ready to give me call-sheet for six months on the trot," says Selvaa. Considering that their latest 'joint venture' Mayakkam Enna has been doing well, there is every likelihood that Dhanush would be starring in the sequel film!
