One of the milestones in Thalapathy Vijay's career is the 2012 film Thuppakki, directed by AR Murugadoss. This action thriller was a big hit in Tamil as well as Telugu. Later, Murugadoss remade the film in Hindi as Holiday with Akshay Kumar as the lead. Even that film was a big hit.

Thuppakki deals with the story of a soldier who comes home on a holiday and involuntarily gets involved in a mission against terrorists. The idea of sleeper cells, gripping screenplay and the patriotic elements in the film helped Thuppakki to become a blockbuster at the box office. Now, Murugadoss has revealed that he has plans of making a sequel for this movie.
The director said that this time, the protagonist will be on an international mission. The director added that he is yet to find plot-line and once he gets it, he starts developing the story. He confirmed that Thuppakki 2 will go on floors only after the entire script gets locked. But Anyways, Vijay's fans are happy that the sequel is on cards. Meanwhile, Murugadoss is currently busy promoting his upcoming film Darbar which stars Rajinikanth and Nayanthara in the lead roles. It is releasing on January 10.
