Fans of Kamal Haasan were dejected when shooting of Indian 2 was put on hold owing to difference of opinion between director Shankar and Lyca Productions. There were reports that the much-awaited project will be shelved. However, the huge success of Vikram has changed everything.

Though the movie's director and producer sorted out their differences much before Vikram was released, it is only after the latter's gargantuan success that makers gained more confidence. Vikram went on to become the celebrated comeback of Kamal Haasan, thus reminding everyone in the industry of the veteran actor-filmmaker's stardom and popularity.

Indian 2 is likely to resume its pending portions from the second week of September. Kajal Aggarwal, who is said to be opting out of the much-expected sequel, recently confirmed that she is part of the project and that she will join the team next month.

We now hear that veteran actor Karthik will also be playing a crucial part in the film. Though it is said that he will replace either Nedumudi Venu or Vivek's character, an official update is awaited from makers. Venu was supposed to play the role he essayed in the first part which was released in 1996, while Indian 2 could have been the first collaboration of Kamal and Vivek. However, fate had other plans.

Siddharth, Priya Bhavani Shankar and Rakul Preet among others will be seen essaying key roles in Indian 2 which will have music composed by Anirudh. This is the first Kamal-starrer Anirudh signed before Vikram was launched.

The movie hit the headlines a few weeks before the pandemic era began for wrong reasons. Three crew members of the film died on spot when a huge crane fell on them.
