Amidst numerous rumors, another report has surfaced about Jailer 2, which will mark Thalaivar Rajinikanth's on-screen comeback as Muthuvel Pandian. On director Nelson Dilipkumar's birthday, social media kept buzzing with several speculations.

As per reports, the first draft of Jailer 2 has been finalized, and the team is pleased with Nelson's developed concept. The writer-director is keen on delving deeper into Rajinikanth's character and has a solid blueprint for advancing the world of Muthuvel Pandian.

The producers, along with Rajinikanth, have given their approval to proceed with the core idea. Moreover, pre-production for Jailer 2 is rumored to commence in June 2024.

According to rumors, the filming for Jailer 2 would begin at the end of this year or early in 2025, depending upon Rajinikanth's schedule for his next film, Coolie, directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj.
