The remaining shoot of the movie will resume after Kamal Haasan wraps up Vikram and once the dust between the director and producers of the sequel is settled.
The shooting of the upcoming sequel to Indian, is all set to restart after Kamal Haasan completes filming for Lokesh Kanagaraj’s Vikram. During this period, the rift created between director Shankar and the producers of Indian 2 is also expected to be resolved.
Indian 2 marks the reunion of Kamal Haasan and director Shankar after their first instalment, which came out in 1996. The upcoming action drama has been put on hold for more than a year, and the total production time for the movie has crossed more than three years. The delay in production that’s hindering the movie’s release, owing to the rift between the director and its production house, led to the makers going to court to settle matters.
The court, however, didn’t accept the petition by producers that requested a stay on Shankar to work on new movies. They were left to settle their conflict amicably. Meanwhile, Kamal Haasan is said to have engaged in talks with both the parties individually to arrive at a common ground recently.
It is said that both the parties had a friendly conversation after which they decided to resume filming after Kamal wraps up his portions for Vikram.
About 60 per cent of Indian 2, bankrolled by Lyca Productions, is said to have been completed. The movie also stars Siddharth, Kajal Aggarwal, Rakul Preet Singh and Priya Bhavani Shankar in pivotal roles.
