Buzz: Mammootty to do a major role alongside Kamal Haasan in Indian 2!!
The much hyped Kamal Haasan starrer ‘Indian 2’ is all set to go on floors on December 14. 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. Latest buzz is that Malayalam superstar Mammootty has been approached to play a major role in the movie. Trade analyst and Kollywood industry tracker Kaushik was the first to tweet about this big news.
He has tweeted,
Hot Buzz : Legend @mammukka to do a role in #Ulaganayagan #KamalHaasan – #Shankar’s #Indian2. Will be massive if confirmed
Director Shankar’s love for Malayali actors is well known. Most of his hit films have had a Malayali presence. Vineeth, Nedumudi Venu, Cochin Haneefa, Kalabhavan Mani and Suresh Gopi are some of the actors from Malayalam industry who have been part of Shankar’s films. His recently released ‘2.0’ had Kalabhavan Shajon in a brief role.
Earlier, Shankar had tried to rope in Mohanlal for the villain role in ‘Sivaji’ but it didn’t materialize. It will be huge if he can rope in Mammootty for ‘Indian 2’. On the other hand, the megastar has been choosy when it comes to doing Tamil films. In the last few years, he has declined a number of offers, some of which were big projects.
As of now, only Kamal and Kajal Agarwal have been confirmed for ‘Indian 2’. Though names like Ajay Devgn, Dulquer Salmaan, Akshay Kumar and Simbu are doing the rounds, we will have to wait for an official word from the makers side. Lyca Productions is funding the movie. An official announcement with details regarding the full cast and crew is expected to be made shortly.
