Kamal Haasan has recently stated it again in one of his interviews that Indian 2 will be his final film in the industry, before he takes the complete jump into his political arena. Therefore, Lyca Productions, the makers of the film, are trying their best to leave no stone unturned in what could be a fitting farewell for the legendary artist.
