Shankar made the announcement officially on finale of the Bigg Boss Tamil show which was hosted by Kamal Haasan. There have been many speculations since then regarding the rest of the cast, however, there are unconfirmed reports doing rounds that Shankar may try to rope in a Bollywood actor too. News has it that Shankar is planning to rope in Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn for an important role in the film. Shankar recently met Ajay Devgn and had discussions regarding this but no official deal was made, reports reveal. It is still uncertain whether Ajay Devgn would be seen playing the bad guy, like Akshay Kumar in 2.0. If this materialises, this will be Ajay Devgn’s first Tamil cinema in his illustrious career.
It is also being said that actor Nayanthara may be signed on for the lead actress role in Indian 2 and the discussions are still on about it. This will be the first time association for the actress to pair up with Kamal Haasan in her long career.
Shankar S is currently working on the most prestigious project – 2.0 – which is a sequel to his 2010 film Enthiran. With Rajinikanth in the lead role, 2.0 will have Amy Jackson playing the leading lady and Bollywood top actor Akshay Kumar will be seen playing the antagonist. 2.0 is slated to be released in January 2018 and the post-production works on the film are currently in progress.
Kamal Haasan had announced recently that he will no longer do films since he will now be entering politics. Indian 2 might just be the film which will elevate his entry in politics and may have his political ideologies in it too.
