Akshay Kumar saying yes to star in Shankar’s magnum opus 2.0 was one of the best decisions of his career, as the film turned out to be his biggest grosser yet. Akshay was widely lauded for his performance in the film as Pakshi Rajan, making great inroads into the southern territories as well. And now, it looks like director Shankar has knocked his door once again for his upcoming political thriller Indian 2 which stars Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan in the lead role.
The film, which went on floors today, is expected to be wrapped up in a short span of time compared to Shankar’s other projects. Shankar, who had earlier approached Ajay Devgn for the role, seemed to have changed paths after Ajay found it hard to accommodate dates with all his current commitments around him. Immediately, Shankar has approached Akshay Kumar who is on the verge of finding his way into the film. According to sources in the south, the role written for Akshay Kumar is said to be a negative one which demands a thoroughly dedicated act.
Kajal Aggarwal plays the female lead in the film. The actress has been meticulously working on mastering the art of Kalari for her role, which will have a good load of stunts. Apart from these names, a popular Tamil actor is also in talks to play Kamal Haasan’s grandson. The official updates are eagerly awaited!
