Friday 22nd February 2019 06:13 EST

Shooting for Kamal Haasan's 'Indian 2' began in Chennai last month, and there have been reports that after a few scenes were shot, the film director Shankar was not happy with the appearance of Kamal in the role of an old man and had stopped the shooting and resumed it after making some changes to the makeup. Meanwhile, there have been reports doing the rounds that some difference of opinion has arisen between Lyca, the production house and the Director of 'Indian 2'. It may be noted that the film '2.0' featuring Rajinikant and released recently was also directed by Shankar and produced by Lyca.

Rumours reveal the expenditure on '2.0' exceeded the budget and Lyca did not want the same thing to happen to 'Indian 2' as well and Lyca had insisted on this and this is the reason for Shankar stopping the shooting. However, Lyca Productions team has denied the rumours. A spokesperson for the production house commented on the issue and said, “Rumours of 'Indian 2' being abandoned are false and baseless. Some important scenes have been filmed for one week has been done at the memorial home, near the Chennai General Hospital The next stage of shooting within the studios has also been completed. Right now, the sets are being built in many places. After a brief interval, continuous filming will resume.”
