Chennai, July 17 (IANS) "Sathuranka Vettai 2", sequel to the immensely enjoyable superhit Tamil film, "Sathuranka Vettai", will finally be released on October 7 this year, its makers announced on Sunday.
Actor and producer Mano Bala took to Twitter to make the announcement. He tweeted a poster of the film that had the release date as October 7.

Written by H. Vinoth, who was in the news for having directed Ajith Kumar's "Valimai", the film was originally to be produced by Manobala Picture House and Cinema City. Due to financial issues, its release was getting delayed. Late last year, its rights were acquired by producer Mouttou Sambandam of Onsky Technology.
