After the unimpressive response to ‘Vishwaroopam 2’, Kamal Haasan would be keen to bounce back as the second installment of his hit ‘Indian’, directed by veteran filmmaker Shankar, went on floors. What’s interesting to note is that the shooting is commencing on a day the veteran actor completes 59 years in the film industry and enters the 60th one. One of the members of the cast, Rakul Preet Singh, too expressed her delight about her latest venture.
The producers of ‘Indian 2’, Lyca Productions, wished Kamal Haasan in a heartfelt way as he entered the 60th year of his career. In a lovely post merging a snap from his child artist days, alongside his latest, the makers wrote, “We are honored in wishing Ulaganayagan @ikamalhaasan for his contribution to our film industry for years & we are happy to be a part of his incredible journey while he's stepping into his 60th year in this industry! #60PathBreakingYrsOfKamal #Indian2 .”
Rakul shared a boomerang selfie video on her Instagram stories where she is excitedly waving the script in her hand. She captioned the video, “Indian 2 begins.”
The actress reportedly is paired opposite Siddharth in the film. The ‘Rang De Basanti’ actor, as per reports, is playing Kamal Haasan’s grandson in the movie.
Apart from these two, Kajal Aggarwal, Vidyut Jammwal and Aishwarya Rajesh are some of the other members of the cast.
Kamal Haasan, who is currently busy with hosting responsibilities of ‘Bigg Boss’ Tamil version, had recently announced on the show that he’ll be sporting a clean-shaven look.
‘Indian’, also starring Manisha Koirala and Urmila Matondkar, that released in 1996 is among Kamal Haasan’s most popular films. ‘Indian 2’ was launched with fanfare in January, as makers unveiled the first look and held a grand event where Kamal Haasan was seen in his character of Chandru, ex-freedom fighter-turned-vigilante.
However, as per reports, the shooting was halted midway. Reportedly, ‘Indian 2’ is gearing up for release on Tamil New Year around April, 2021.
