Akshay Kumar replaces Ajay Devgn in Indian 2?
The much talked about Kamal Haasan starrer ‘Indian 2’ is getting ready to go on floors. The movie directed by Shankar is the sequel to the 1996 classic hit ‘Indian’. Though the makers are yet to make an official announcement about the cast, there are several reports doing the rounds in social medias. Bollywood star Ajay Devgn, Simbu, Dulquer Salmaan and Kajal Agarwal are some of the names that are said to be part of the movie. Latest from the rumour mills is that Akshay Kumar will be replacing Ajay Devgn in the movie. The fact that Akshay recently worked with director Shankar in ‘2.0’ makes him the top contender. We still have to wait for an official word from the makers.
‘Indian 2’ will have Kamal Haasan reprising his role of Senapathi, a freedom fighter-turned-vigilante.
Shankar is scripting the movie and dialogues are being penned by Jeyamohan, Kabilan Vairmuthu and Lakshmi Saravanakumar. The movie is expected to go on floors next month. Production designer Muthuraj and his team are currently busy with the set works. Shoot will be commencing with a brief schedule in Ramoji Rao Film City, Hyderabad.
Ravi Varman is the cinematographer and Anirudh will be handling the music department. Lyca Productions is funding the movie. Unlike the director’s other recent films, ‘Indian 2’ will not have much VFX or CG works, so the makers are eyeing to release the movie in 2019 itself.
