S Shankar is busy with two projects

The veteran director is currently shuffling between two major projects - Indian 2 and Game Changer. Indian 2, starring Kamal Haasan and Siddharth, is slated to release in June, but the makers are yet to announce the release date. The sequel to the 1996 blockbuster Indian, marks the return of Senapathy (played by Kamal Haasan) to India from Hong Kong after learning about the ongoing corruption and injustice in the country through social media. The film also stars Kajal Aggarwal, Rakul Preet Singh, Nedumudi Venu, Vivek, and Kalidas Jayaram in pivotal roles.


On the other hand, Game Changer, starring Ram Charan and Kiara Advani, is expected to hit the theatres towards the end of the year.
