New Delhi: It is now official! The work on Kamal Haasan’s Indian 2 will commence from today, 24th August. The makers shared the exciting news by releasing a new poster featuring Kamal Haasan as Senapathy once more. The image has the words “He is Back” written on it. According to the latest buzz surrounding the drama, the film’s latest schedule will take place at a massive set erected near Parrys Corner in Chennai. Kamal Haasan appears to be joining the shoot in September of this year.
In addition to the protagonist, Kajal Aggarwal, Bobby Simha, and Siddharth will be on set in September. The film’s main cast also includes Rakul Preet Singh, Priya Bhavani Shankar, Guru Somasundaram, and Samuthirakani. Indian 2 is produced by Udayanidhi Stalin of Red Giant Movies in collaboration with Lyca Productions and directed by S Shankar. As music director, Anirudh Ravichander has joined the project.
The film’s production was halted due to an accident on the set in February 2020, which resulted in the deaths of several crew members. Talking about delay in film’s making, Kamal Haasan had earlier said, “Aside from the fact that it’s a big film, we had a lot of things coming up in between.” We had COVID, and there was a fatal accident on the set. It’s terrifying, but we persisted.” He added, “I run a white elephant called Raaj Kamal Films and Mr. Shankar runs a company called S Productions. These are the white elephants which we need to feed, so we go out and work. We can’t get stuck on one film. The days of Mughal-Ae-Azam cannot be repeated. We can’t sit with one film for a decade.”
