One of the most respected personalities in Indian cinema, Kamal Haasan is at present making his presence on the political arena after the reputed and multi-talented star launched his Makkal Needhi Maiam party.

Subsequently, the veteran Tamil superstar was announced to be reprising his role from the 1996 blockbuster, Indian, for Lyca Productions' Indian 2 and once again under Shankar’s direction with Kajal Aggarwal playing the female lead this time. 

As of now, filming on Indian 2 has been put on hold owing to Kamal Haasan’s political commitments and the actor has now taken to Twitter to express his anguish over the violence that erupted in a Dalit settlement at Ponparappi village in the Ariyalur district.

Kamal Haasan has stated that he along with legendary composer Ilaiyaraaja had written a song for his long-pending film, Marudhanayagam, which sheds light on the various anti-social atrocities that took place nearly 300 years back and is akin to the events that have transpired in the Ponparappi village now.
