‘Neeya 2’ gets ‘U’ certificate

Neeya 2, a sequel to 1979 hit titled the same, is censored. The movie, which will hit the screens 24 May, has managed a U certificate.

Written and directed by L Suresh, the movie has Jai, Catherine Tresa, Varalaxmi and Rai Laxmi in key roles.

Varalaxmi will reprise the role of the shape-shifting snake, which was played by Sripriya in the original film.

The film will also feature a black cobra in an important role, and the makers travelled to different destinations in India and Thailand before finding the right snake in Bangkok. However, since it could not be used, they shot using computer graphics.

Neeya 2 was shot in Pondicherry, Talakonam, Chennai, Madurai and Chalakudi.
