According to a report by India TV, Bitchagadu 2 is likely to go on the floors by the end of 2020 and will hit the screens in 2021. The report adds that earlier there were rumours that the film will be directed by Sasi who helmed the prequel, but the actor negated those rumours with his tweet.
Times of India reported that story of the sequel has been penned by Vijay himself during the lockdown. The 2016 Tamil film Pichaikaran which got dubbed into Telugu as Bitchagadu was released amidst no expectations but shocked trade pundits by doing extremely well.
The report stated that the film raked in over Rs 20 crore.
As per the report, the story of Bitchagadu revolves around a millionaire who decides to give up his lavish life and turn into a beggar to save his mother following the advice of a sage.
In an industry that insists that star kids are the next best thing, the title Most Eligible Bachelor is annoyingly declarative. But thankfully here, the title is not an assertion, but an interrogation.
The emotional beats are inconsistent and overly melodramatic, bordering on preachy in a few instances.

"I have always romanticised shepherds crossing the mountains with their sheep as it creates a beautiful picture, but when I read this book, it took me by surprise as it revealed the real struggles that they were facing," says director Krish on adapting the book Konda Polam into a film.
