Kanchana, or Muni 2: Kanchana is the follow-up to Lawrence's massively successful previous venture, Muni and the second film in the installment of Muni film series.

In an interview with Firstpost, when Lawrence was asked about his choice for Sarathkumar's role in the Hindi version, he had said,“I would like to cast Amitabh Bachchan sir for the particular role but things can be confirmed only after the formal discussion with Akshay sir and his team in Mumbai." Now, India Today has reported that the megastar may be seen as the vengeful transgender ghost.
