Kamal Haasan and director Shankar resumed filming Indian 2, and the new schedule got underway in Chennai.
Interestingly, Kamal Haasan was photographed with Napoleon, YG Mahendra, and a few other celebrities, while attending an event on Tuesday. The actor was seen sporting a big moustache and a clean-shaven appearance and fans began speculating that Kamal Haasan's new avatar might be the appearance from his Indian 2.
Unconfirmed reports claim that Ulaganayagan asked the makers of Indian 2 to build a set in Vadapalani as he will be juggling two shoots at once. Courtesy: Bigg Boss Tamil. The reality show will begin airing next month.
The vigilante action film directed by Shankar serves as a sequel to his 1996 hit Indian.
Produced by Red Giant Movies and Lyca Productions, Indian 2 stars Haasan along with an ensemble cast of Gulshan Grover, Siddharth, Kajal Aggarwal, Rakul Preet, Priya Bhavani Shankar, Samuthirakani, Bobby Simha, Guru Somasundaram, Delhi Ganesh, Jayaprakash and others.
Indian 2 was announced in September 2017. The shooting was halted following an accident on the sets in February 2020, leading to the death of a few crew members. Production had been suspended since then owing to the Covid-19 pandemic, budget overruns and legal disputes, due to other commitments of the cast and crew.
Indian 2 will have music by Anirudh Ravichander. The rest of the cast and crew are yet to be revealed.
After four years, Kamal Haasan returned to the silver screen with his home production Vikram on June 3.
When pressed about a sequel for Vikram, Kamal Haasan stated that if it does happen, then it would be directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj. “I’m stating this without even consulting with him.”
Talking to Film Companion, Kamal said that Suriya's cameo will take the story further in the third part of the movie.
“It’s no longer a rumour. We had to put up our hands and admit that Suriya is playing an incredible last-minute appearance. That should take the story a little further, probably into part 3,” said Ulganayagan.
Speaking about the anticipated success of Vikram, Kamal Haasan said that it was a ‘different’ pan-Indian film.
“Pan-India films are not new. Satyajit Ray’s films were pan-Indian. Vikram is a film that will be part of the list of films we can introduce to the world which has a preconceived notion about Indian cinema,” observed Kamal Haasan.
