Director Shankar has been working on the sequel of his blockbuster film ‘Indian’, and the director has teamed up again with Kamal Haasan for the movie. The film was announced officially in 2017, but due to several delays, it started rolling last year. However the production has undergone many trials and tribulations firstly the original producer Dil Raju backed out and Lyca Productions came in. The next change was when cinematographer Ravi Varman opted out and was replaced by R.Rathnavelu. Then in early 2019 when the shooting commenced it had to be stalled due to a glitch in the makeup process that did not agree with Kamal’s skin.
While everything was going well, a crane collapsed at the shooting spot of ‘Indian 2’ in February, accidentally killing three people including Shankar’s assistant. After all these woes the shooting of the mega project is once again set to begin after the coronavirus lockdown ends. Now, the latest buzz is that due to the echo of the unfortunate incident, Shankar has decided to move the shooting location of ‘Indian 2’ to another spot, that the location has been shifted from EVP Gardens where the accident occurred to the Binny Mills compound in Pallavaram. It is said that the rest of the film will be shot in one go and there are also plans to release the film in two parts as there is already heavy footage.
‘Indian 2’ has a music score by Anirudh and the ensemble cast comprises of Kamal Haasan, Kajal Aggarwal, Rakul Preet Singh, Priya Bhavani Shankar, Bobby Simha, Siddharth, Nedumudi Venu, and Vivek.
