As the shoot of Indian 2 is set to begin today January 18th, the team launched 3 terrific new posters from the film on Thursday. The excitement generated by these ‘Indian Thatha’ posters is immense. With the taglines “older, wiser and deadlier”, we get to see Kamal Haasan in heavy makeup, as ‘Indian Thatha’ Senapathy - the aggressive veteran vigilante who doesn’t spare corruption in society. The special makeup work by Legacy Effects is fantastic; given the perfection levels that Kamal and director Shankar are known for, such level of work comes as no surprise at all.
These new stills have also been splashed all over Chennai city in the form of big wall posters. Producers Lyca have commenced the publicity work of the film in right earnest already. The Indian 2 team will be shooting for about 10 days in Chennai this month. We hear that elaborate sets have been put up at Gokulam Studios far away from the city, so that the shooting can be done without any hassles and security issues. Director Shankar has always been a stickler for privacy and secrecy during the shooting of his films. The team also has plans to shoot in many overseas destinations.
A release date for Indian 2 hasn’t been locked yet. Given the big scale of the film, it should ideally release early or mid next year.
