Ready, Set, Go: Production Begins On Kamal Haasan’s Indian 2

Kamal Haasan At The 'Get Your Freaking Hands Off Me' Album Launch

The production work for Shankar’s Kamal Haasan starrer Indian 2 has officially begun. T.Muthuraj, the production designer of the movie, took to social media to share the news by tweeting a photo from the shooting set.

Indian 2 is a sequel to the director’s 1996 movie. Initial reports said that Nayanthara was to be roped in as the female lead. But according to a report in TNIE, Kajal Agarwal has been signed as the heroine for this movie. And while Malayalam actor Nedumudi Venu is set to reprise his role from the original movie, Kamal Haasan had earlier revealed that Ajay Devgn would be playing the antagonist in Indian 2.

Latest reports suggest that Dulquer Salmaan has been cast in a significant role. Salmaan, whose last release came with Karwaan in which he acted alongside Irrfan Khan, played the lead roles in Mani Ratnam’s OK Kanmani and Bejoy Nambiar’s Solo which were the actor’s last major Tamil releases.


Produced by Lyca Productions, the music for the movie will be composed by Aniruddh Ravichander. Interestingly, Aniruddh Ravichander is also scoring the music for Rajinikanth’s upcoming movie Petta – directed by Karthik Subbaraj.

Director Shankar currently awaits the release of his magnum opus – 2.0. Starring Rajnikanth, Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson, the movie is a sequel to the director’s 2010 movie Endhiran. Helmed by the producers of Indian 2, the movie is apparently one of the most expensive Indian movies.

Meanwhile, Kamal Haasan who recently formed his own political party Makkal Neethi Mayakkam has his long-delayed project Sabaash Naidu in the making. The movie is based on the character Balram Naidu from the 2008 movie Dashaavataram that was penned by the actor.

Reports suggest that the shooting for Indian 2 would begin by December 3 after the director has attended to the release duties of 2.0. The first look of Indian 2 was released recently.

Meanwhile, reports have emerged that Simbu has been roped in to play the role of a police officer, though there hasn’t been any official confirmation yet.
