Actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan has finally joined the sets of Shankar's upcoming magnum opus 'Indian 2', which will be wrapped up in the next three months without a break. The makers target to finish the shooting by November to enable Kamal to return to his political commitments. Sources said Kamal wants to be relieved from shooting by end of November as he has major plans for his party Makkal Needhi Mayam.
A sequel to 1992 Tamil blockbuster 'Indian', 'Indian 2' marks the reunion of Kamal and Shankar after two decades. The first poster of the film was unveiled on the occasion of Pongal earlier this year. The makers are now geared up to complete shooting the project as planned in a span of next three months across Chennai, Andhra Pradesh and Taiwan. The first poster featured Kamal displaying his ‘varma-kalai’ skill as the octogenarian vigilante Senapathy from 'Indian'.
Produced on a lavish budget by Lyca Productions, the movie also stars Kajal Aggarwal, Rakul Preet Singh, and Priya Bhavani Shankar among others. IT has music by Anirudh Ravichander. About being signed on for the project, Rakul said, "It's a sequel to one of the biggest hits in Indian cinema and I'm really kicked about being a part of it. I was excited when I was offered the role because it's a Shankar-Kamal Haasan combination and getting a chance to work with legends like that so early in my career is an opportunity I did not want to miss."
In early August, Rakul had shared a boomerang video from the film's sets. In it, she was seen getting ready for shoot in the make-up room and has dialogue sheet in her hand.
