While the shoot of ‘Indian 2’ is expected to resume soon after the Covid-19 induced lockdown is lifted, director Shankar has come up with interesting details about his pet project with Kamal Haasan.
In an interview, the ‘Sivaji’ and ‘Anniyan’ maker said that he thought of making ‘Indian 2’ even while shooting for ‘Jeans’, his film with Prashanth and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
“As soon as we completed Indian, Kamal sir initiated the sequel idea but told him that I don’t have the script at that time. I also didn’t want to make a sequel for the sake of it. While shooting for Jeans, I got an idea but made a list of things to not place in the sequel. Slowly, I developed the script as I got the right spark”, he said.
On ‘Anniyan 2’, Shankar said: “As I mentioned earlier, we shouldn’t make sequels for the sake of it. People will compare the sequel with the original and there are chances for them to easily reject the content. Only if we get the right script and idea, sequels can be done”.
‘Indian 2’, produced by Lyca, has an ensemble of cast that includes Kamal Haasan, Siddharth, Kajal Aggarwal, Rakul Preet, Priya Bhavani Shankar etc. Music is by Anirudh Ravichander.
