Indian 2 is one of the most anticipated films of Kamal Haasan that has created a lot of hype and is one of the most awaited PAN India films of 2021. It’s almost been 22 long years since Shankars Bharateeyudu was released starring Kamal Haasan in a dual role. The storyline of the film runs around the theme of eradicating corruption in the government sector. The recent posters of the film depicted ‘older, wiser and deadlier’ Senapathy.
This film is a blockbuster and went on to become a milestone in south Indian cinema. Now, after 22 long years, Shankar has teamed up again with Kamal Haasan and they have both started working on the sequel of the hit film. However, just like many other films, the COVID pandemic has become the biggest roadblock for this film. For the past two years, the film has been in the making.
Shankar’s Indian 2 Cast
The film is being directed by the iconic Indian director Shankar on a massive budget. This film is being produced by Subaskaran under the banner of Lyca Productions. The production house of the film has chosen Anirudh Ravichander as the film’s music composer. But film’s loyal fans are disappointed with this move as they were expecting AR Rahman to be on board who composed music for the prequel. After the release of the film’s poster, there have been many speculations on why Rahman has not been brought on board.
The action sequences of the film are being composed by Peter Hein, who is a very popular fight composer in the south film industry. Kajal Aggarwal has been paired opposite Kamal Haasan in this dream project. The film’s cast also includes prominent stars like Siddharth, Rakul Preet, Priya Bhavani Shankar among others.
Why Indian 2 Is Delayed?
Kajal Aggarwal has recently opened up about the reasons behind the stalling of the film. She said that most of the film crew are from the United States and due to the travel restrictions owing to the ongoing COVID pandemic the film’s shooting had to be stalled.
The film’s shooting also got stalled prior to the commencement of lockdown in February 2020 due to a crane accident that claimed the lives of three people and left many others injured. The families of the deceased received financial help from Kamal Haasan, Shankar, and producer Subhaskaran of Lyca Productions.
Indian 2 Release Date
The film crew is working relentlessly to finish the shoot without any breaks. Indian 2 is expected to have a grand release during Sankranthi in 2022.
