Filming on Indian 2 has been progressing at a brisk pace in and around Chennai over the past few days and we can expect production to continue for some more time in the city. The film is the sequel to 1996 cult classic blockbuster Indian and sees Kamal Haasan reuniting with director Shankar. The 1996 film had 'Netaji' Subhash Chandra Bose serving as the inspiration for Kamal Haasan's Senapathy character (called 'Indian Thatha' by fans everywhere), who independently goes after those indulging in corruption. Kamal Haasan as Senapathy in Indian is a freedom fighter, who served in Netaji's Indian National Army (INA), showing him towards the end making an escape to a foreign country and warning his countrymen that he will resume his movement against all those who indulge in corruption.
Kamal Haasan's Indian 2 is being produced by Lyca Productions in association with Udhayanidhi Stalin's Red Giant Movies and has a huge ensemble star cast that includes Kajal Aggarwal as the female lead, with Priya Bhavani Shankar, Rakul Preet Singh, Siddharth, Bobby Simha, veteran actors Delhi Ganesh, Gulshan Grover, and former cricketer Yograj Singh (Yuvraj Singh's father) and features music by Anirudh Ravichander.
