We had reported yesterday that reputed lyricist Thamarai had been roped in by the makers of Indian 2.

To be directed by Shankar reportedly under the Lyca Productions banner with 'Ulaganayagan' Kamal Haasan in the lead role, Indian 2 will see the two reunite for a film, which will be the sequel to the 1996 blockbuster, Indian, after a gap of 22 years.

As of now, pre-production works have been progressing at brisk pace with filming expected to start in the second half of the year after Kamal Haasan gets done with his participation for the second season of the hit TV reality show, Bigg Boss.

In the meantime, it has now been confirmed that composer Anirudh Ravichander has been locked in to score the music for Indian 2.

This will mark the young composer's first time association with Kamal Haasan for a film. 

Anirudh is having the time of his life right now after bagging earlier this year yet another illustrious project in the form of 'Superstar' Rajinikanth’s film tentatively being called Thalaivar 165 under Karthik Subbaraj’s direction.
