Kamal Haasan, who has geared up for the release of his much-talked about film, Vishwaroopam 2, has some interesting films in kitty before he bids goodbye to his acting career for politics. Kamal Haasan will be seen teaming up with Shankar once again for ‘Indian 2’. While the film is currently in the pre-production stage, latest buzz suggests, Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn is likely to play an important role in the film. However, official confirmation regarding the same is awaited. Well, Ajay Devgn is known for playing some strong and content-oriented roles. It would be interesting to see him sharing screen space with Tamil star Kamal Haasan.
On the other hand, reports are also doing rounds that Nayanthara might play the female lead opposite Haasan in Indian 2. However, nothing as of now has been made official.
The shooting of the film was about to begin from June this year but has been pushed to 2019 as Shankar reportedly is busy with the post-production work of the upcoming sci-fi thriller ‘2.0’. The makers of the film will begin with the film’s shoot after Kamal Haasan complete his commitments and shooting of the reality show, Bigg Boss Tamil 2.
Indian 2 will be a sequel to the 1996 release Indian which had Kamal Haasan playing dual roles. Directed by Shankar, the film had a social message about corruption and had the older Kamal Haasan playing an intense character. And now with the sequel in the pipeline and Kamal Haasan taking up a political journey, reports are doing rounds that Indian 2 will also have a political theme to it.
To be made on a lavish budget, ‘Indian 2’ is being bankrolled by Lyca Productions. Meanwhile, Kamal has geared up for the release of Vishwaroopam 2. Viswaroopam 2 is a spy-thriller and is a sequel to the 2013 release Vishwaroopam. The film also stars Andrea Jeremiah, Pooja Kumar, and Shekhar Kapoor, the film has music by Ghibran.
The film is slated to release on August 10 this year.
