Vidyut Jammwal to star in Kamal Haasan’s Indian 2
Kamal Haasan-Shankar team’s ‘Indian 2’ has been in the news for a long time now. After the movie was officially launched in January this year, there were reports about the project being temporarily shelved. Kamal Haasan’s political commitments and budget overrun were said to be the reasons. But we now hear that the makers have resolved all the issues. Kollywood medias suggest that full fledged shoot will resume from August.
Buzz is that Bollywood action star Vidyut Jammwal has been roped in to star alongside Kamal Haasan. He is said to play the prime antagonist’s role but the makers are yet to confirm this. Earlier, names like Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar and Abishek Bachchan had also surfaced online but it seems like Jammwal has signed the deal. He is best known in Tamil for his villain role in Vijay’s ‘Thuppakki’. His last release in Tamil was the Suriya starrer ‘Anjaan’, which was released five years back. The actor is indeed lucky to bag a huge project like ‘Indian 2’ for his comeback.
‘Indian 2’ has Kamal Haasan reprising his role of Senapathi, a freedom fighter-turned-vigilante. Kajal Agarwal was originally signed as the female lead. Actors like Siddharth, Priya Bhavani Shankar, Aishwarya Rajesh, Nedumudi Venu and Delhi Ganesh are also said to be part of the cast.
Shankar has written the movie’s screenplay and dialogues are penned by Jeyamohan, Kabilan Vairmuthu and Lakshmi Saravanakumar. Others in the crew include music director Anirudh Ravichander, cinematographer Ravi Varman, editor Sreekar Prasad and production designer Muthuraj.
