The film bankrolled by Lyca had even released the first look poster with Kamal Haasan. The unit perhaps shot for a very short schedule post which Kamal Haasan got immersed in his election campaigns and work related to that. It was also said that once he completes the election work, he was to join the Indian 2 sets back. Meanwhile, there were also widespread talks that the sets erected to shoot the film was lying unused and that the producer was paying huge rent for the same. There were many who wondered if the film was dropped.
Now we have some update on this film. Our sources say, “Indian 2 has been put on hold for the time being as there are some issues associated with the production house.
