Indian-2 shoot starts

Kamal-Shankar’s Indian 2 shoot starts

The shoot of Kamal Haasan and Shankar’s magnum opus Indian 2 resumed today (August 12). Actress Rakul Preet Singh has joined the sets and she even posted an update confirming the same on her Instagram stories.

The pretty actress who will be playing Siddharth’s romantic interest in the movie has joined the sets of the film today.

Speculation is rife that Siddharth will play the grandson of the freedom fighter-turned-vigilante, Senapathi, who sets out on a mission to eradicate corruption in the society by killing corrupt government officials in the 1996 original.

Produced by Lyca Productions, Shankar has reportedly quoted nearly Rs 200 crore as the overall budget of Indian 2. The film also boasts an ensemble of actors including Siddharth, Kajal Aggarwal, Priya Bhavani Shankar, Aishwarya Rajesh, Vidyut Jamwal, Delhi Ganesh and Nedumudi Venu.

While Kajal Aggarwal plays the female lead and also undergone training in Kalaripayattu, an Indian martial art, Priya Bhavani Shankar has also been roped into play one of the female leads in the film.

Though reports say that Rathnavelu has replaced cinematographer Ravi Varman in Indian 2, the makers are yet to officially confirm his presence in the film.

Anirudh Ravichander is composing the music, Muthuraj takes care of production design and National Award-winning editor Sreekar Prasad is also working along with the team.
Kamal is also simultaneously busy with Bigg Boss reality show on Vijay TV.
