Is Anil Kapoor the villain of Kamal’s Indian 2?

Ever since famous Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor spotted on the sets of Indian 2, reports are doing the rounds that he is playing an important role in the film. It is now being said that he is playing the villain of the movie.

Earlier, the film’s director Shankar had approached Ajay Devgn to play the antagonist but that did not materialise. A photo of Anil Kapoor speaking to director Shankar is going viral on social media. Sources close to the team revealed that the Bollywood actor came to Chennai to discuss his character among other things.

The film, which has Kamal Haasan in the lead role, also boasts a long list of promising actors including Kajal Aggarwal, Priya Bhavani Shankar, Rakul Preet Singh, Siddharth, Vivek, Nedumudi Venu, and Vidyut Jamwal.

Recently, a story did rounds on the media, claiming to be that of India. It said Siddharth runs a YouTube channel, which exposes corrupt politicos and officials. On seeing it from a foreign country, Senapathy (protagonist of Indian, played by Kamal), returns to India.

He gets the list of the corrupt people from Siddharth and murders them one after one. He is also helped in his mission by Siddharth and Kajal Aggarwal.

Recently, Shankar released a poster featuring Kamal Haasan from Indian 2, today on Independence Day. The poster features a city with sky scrapers and has Kamal Haasan striking a pose as Senapathy.

Kamal Haasan revealed on the sets of Bigg Boss, the show hosted by him, that he will have a clean-shaven look for both Indian 2 and his upcoming Thalaivan Irukkindran, the political thriller that was shelved and recently revived.

Rakul Preet said in an interview: “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,” she said.
