Fans of Kamal Haasan are excited to the core after the massive success of Lokesh Kanagaraj's Vikram. The film has been collecting impressive numbers in all south states, especially in Tamil Nadu and Kerala. As if this isn't enough, fans of Ulaganayagan now have one more reason to cheer.

Udhayanidhi, who has bagged theatrical rights of Vikram, has announced that the much-awaited magnum opus, Indian 2, will resume soon. He came up with the update on the movie's status at the success meet of Don, which starred Sivakarthikeyan in the lead.

Now, all eyes are on Indian 2, which was shelved a while ago after director Shankar and production house Lyca Productions had creative differences. It is expected that the shooting of the remaining portions of the big budget film will commence soon. Siddharth, Rakul Preet Singh and Priya Bhavani Shankar are a few who will be seen playing significant roles in the film.

At the success meet, Udhayanidhi also spoke about how he was impressed with the latter half of Don and predicted that it would end up as Siva's highest grossing project, by surpassing his previous outing, Doctor.

He also surprised everyone by revealing that he was the first actor to have been approached by team Don, but he rejected it because he felt that some of the portions in it may not suit him. Udhay appreciated Siva and said that the latter did a commendable job by portraying the protagonist's character effortlessly.

He also congratulated debutant director Cibi Chakaravarthi for having had a great escape by casting Siva in the lead role and not him. "Siva performed the flashback portions and emotional scenes in the climax beautifully. I wouldn't have been able to do justice to the character. I'm happy that the script went to the right person," he said.
