Two decades after Kamal Haasan’s super hit movie Indian, filmmaker S Shankar is all set to roll out the sequel, Indian 2. The news was announced last year, at the grand finale of Tamil reality show Bigg Boss. The first movie also starred Manisha Koirala and Urmila Matondkar. Reports suggest that the sequel will see actress Nayanthara.
According to a report in Deccan Chronicle, the actress will play a role in the film. She is touted to play the role of a revolutionary in the movie. Nayanthara had garnered praises for her role in the 2017 Aram.
The movie will see the reprisal of Haasan’s role of the vigilante, Senpathy.
Lyca Productions, who have also made Rajinikanth’s 2.0, have reportedly picked up the film.
Shankar flew a hot-air balloon in Taiwan to flag the start of Indian 2. The movie, which was slated to go on floor later this year, might take a while to take off as the release of Shankar’s 2.0 is postponed.Anirudh Ravichander has also been signed for Indian 2. The movie will be shot simultaneously in Tamil and Telugu. Reports say that Haasan will lose weight for the role with the help of a special trainer from the US to help him achieve the goal.
