Indian 2, director Shankar's next is progressing well with the prep work to get it on to the floors. Ulaga Nayagan Kamal Haasan, who played the lead role in the prequel, will be the hero in the sequel as well, which will be bankrolled by Lyca Productions on a lavish budget.

The film which will mark Haasan’s return as the octogenarian vigilante Senapathy, was supposed to commence its shooting from 14 December. Now the shoot has been postponed to January 2019 and it is being said that the delay in set work has resulted in this push.

While the makers are yet to officially reveal more details about the project, there are reports that Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn are being considered to play the antagonist in this venture. It has already been confirmed that Kajal Aggarwal will play the leading lady who recently visited the US to get her look test done for Indian 2. The film will have music by Anirudh Ravichander.

Indian 2 will mark the reunion of Kamal Haasan and Shankar after two decades. The news about Indian 2 was first announced during the first season of Tamil Bigg Boss, which was hosted by Haasan.

Meanwhile, Haasan is believed to have shed weight to play his role in Indian 2. He’s believed to undergo a strict weight loss program under the supervision of a team of trainers from the US.

Released in the year 1996, Indian was directed by S Shankar and featured Haasan in dual roles as father and son, along with Manisha Koirala and Urmila Matondkar in the lead roles with Goundamani, Senthil, Nedumudi Venu, Kasturi, Sukanya, and Crazy Mohan forming the supporting cast.
