And now, latest reports reveal that Kamal Haasan may begin shooting for Sabash Naidu which has been delayed after the actor injured himself while shooting for it in the US. To be directed by himself, Sabash Naidu will also star Shruti Haasan in a pivotal role and will be the first time that the father-daughter duo would be acting together for the first time. Sabash Naidu is based on the character, Balram Naidu, which was one of the characters in Kamal Haasan starrer Dasavatharam directed by KS Ravi Kumar.
Indian 2 will be 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. However, there is no official confirmation on that yet.
