In his recent chat with the media representatives, Kamal Haasan extensively spoke about making Indian in 1996. According to the veteran actor, it was the most expensive Tamil film of that time, and both he and director Shankar were scared about it as it was a big risk. However, in front of Indian 2, the first part seems like a simple film. The Ulaganayagan revealed the second installment is a much bigger film when it comes to the budget and scale, and it is an even ‘bigger’ risk.
